Head Coach Orin Bentley


Orin BentleyI grew up in Vermont and began competitive swimming at age 8. I swam on the team at my prep-school in Massachusetts, and earned a college scholarship to swim for The Evergreen State College in Washington. I love competing, and participate in as many Masters meets and open water swims as I can.

At Evergreen, I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree and then moved to the Bay Area in 2006. I recently earned my California teaching credential at SFSU, and have been teaching P.E. at the elementary level here in the Bay Area for 3 years now.

I began coaching swimming right after high school for my local age group team, and am currently the Assistant Varsity Swim Coach and the Head J.V. Coach at Castro Valley High School.

I love coaching and instructing swimmers of all ages and levels. To me, swimming is the ultimate exercise because not only is it a great workout, but it can also be enjoyed for an entire lifetime. I've been swimming and/or coaching in one form or another all my life and plan to continue for the rest of it!
