O.C. swim coach banned for life; other coach resigns

A Mission Viejo swimming coach has been banned for life by swimming’s national governing body after he admitted to having inappropriate conduct with a female teenage swimmer. According to the report, the coach became involved with a 15-year-old when he was 28-years-old and developed a long-term sexual relationship with the teen girl.

In a separate case, an Orange County swim coach resigned from his position at Golden West Swim Club (GWSC) after a story reporting his alleged sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior toward female teen swimmers. As a result, the GWSC has implemented policies and programs through a non-profit foundation designed to prevent inappropriate behavior toward athletes.

The swimmer involved in the case of the Mission Viejo Natadores coach case chose not to file a complaint or participate in the investigation. The coach however, stated that an inappropriate relationship occurred and thus he elected not to contest the sanctions imposed, including a lifetime ban.

The case for the Golden West Swim Club coach remains under investigation.
