​​Meet Your Coaches

*Please continue to check back for additional Coach bios.

GN Josh.jpgJosh Dreano (Coach)
Josh grew up in Virginia Beach and swam for Bayside High School. He has been working for the City of Virginia Beach as a lifeguard since 2013 and became a Water Safety Instructor in 2014 and has been assisting with coaching ever since. Outside of the pool, he doesn't stay inside because he's surfing, fishing, or most likely out playing/teaching disc golf. Josh's advice to his swimmers is always put your best effort forward. When you give more effort than you think you can, you've created new limits to break.
               

GN Roby.JPGRoby Hudgins (Coach)
Roby grew up in Naples, Italy, and started swimming at the sporting club, San Gorgio, in Italy.  As she got older, she swam competitively in middle and high school on a year-round team.  She competed at a national level in Italy, with the 100-meter butterfly being her best event.  Roby has traded in her competitive swimming days to offer swim instruction to both adults and children and has been a Water Safety Instructor for eight years.  She enjoys spending time with her family, company, and photography.  Roby's advice for swimmers is to remain focused, try-hard, and most importantly, have fun.

GN Billy.JPGBilly Campbell (Team Representative)
Welcome to the team! I am your swim team representative. I have worked for parks and recreation for over 10 years now. I spent 5 years as a lifeguard, coach, and swim/surf instructor with Virginia Beach, 2 years as pool manager and training instructor for the City of Norfolk, and I returned to the City of Virginia Beach as a recreation specialist. I have a personal training and fitness certification earned from Tidewater Community College. I grew up right here in Virginia Beach and love the community I serve.  I am an avid sports fan, CrossFit enthusiast, and outdoorsman. My advice to our swimmers is to focus on fitness and other skills will become easier.
