Nick’s swimming career began at the age of 8 and continued through middle and high schools in Plainville. While on the Plainville High School Team he was given the opportunity to help coach and his love of coaching took off from there. He worked as Assistant Coach at Plainville High School followed then was the Head Coach of the Middle School of Plainville Swimming and Diving Team. In his six years of coaching this program he turned in a winning career record as well as grew the program enough to earn an assistant coach.

In 2013 Nick was named the Assistant Swimming and Diving Coach at Bristol Eastern and was promoted to Head Coach in 2015. During his tenure he earned three conference titles, city championships and multiple swimmers made state trials, finals as well as state opens. 

At present Nick is the head coach of the Bristol Co-Op Boys team. For the last two years he has also been the head coach of the Bristol Parks and Recreation Summer team. Last season the summer team earned a division title for the first time in many years.

Nick also works with the coaching staff at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill running a summer swim camp working with kids from all over the country. 

For the past four years Nick coached at the Wheeler YMCA coaching swimmers from ages 6-18 and helped build the program.

In addition to his coaching duties, Nick is the YMCA Yankee Cluster Swim League President. He is proud to be selected by other Connecticut swim coaches to be on the CT Zones Team Coaching staff for two short course and two long course meets in recent years.
