Rowdy Fordney

Assistant Coach

A long line of family Marlin's swimmers, starting before he turned six, graduating to lifeguard and pool maintenance and now coaching—there is barely a topic or  part of the pool Zane has not touched in his career at CT! Zane’s excited to be coaching! He is returning to youth swimming all the lessons he learned while becoming one of our all-time  major powerhouse swimmers before he graduated in 2020! You should see his dive!

Thank you Zane!
