2019 Swim Team Coaching Staff
Head Coach - Josh Hitchens
I am so excited to be returning to North Star for my ninth season as a Swim Coach and fourth season as Head Coach! In the winter, I am the Head Coach at Sanford School where I have been coaching for three years. I am a former Vice President of the UD Club Swim Team and have competed in the 50, 100, and 200 Breaststroke at the Club Swimming National Championship Meet. My experience also includes being a former Swim Team Conditioning instructor at Hockessin Athletic Club and serving as Captain of the Charter School of Wilmington Swim Team. This summer, my goal is to help every swimmer learn how to improve their stroke mechanics and make sure everyone finishes the season with a smile on his or her face! I am looking forward to 2019 being our most fun and productive summer yet!

Assistant Head Coach- Theresa Manganiello
I am very excited to be joining North Star this year as an Assistant Coach and being a part of the team where my swimming career began! My coaching career began four summers ago with the Hockessin Athletic Club, where I also instructed swim lessons year-round and helping swimmers improve their mechanics through the swim clinic. This winter, I acted as an Assistant Coach for Sanford School under Josh as the Head Coach. I am a former member of the Ursuline Academy swim team, where I competed on a team that won two state champion titles. Currently, I am a member of the UD Club Swim team and have competed in the 50 freestyle, 50 backstroke, and 100 backstroke at the Club Swimming National Championship Meet. Starting this swim season, I am optimistic that new goals will be met and great accomplishments will be achieved! I am very excited to see how far everyone's dedication to swimming and positive attitudes towards others will take us as a team!
