Connor White, Marlins Head Age Group Coach

The community that makes up the Club is one I grew up in and I wanted to share that same connection with a new generation of Marlins swimmers.

Connor has been working with the Marlins since 2015, after swimming as a Marlin for 13 years. As a Marlin swimmer, Connor was a multi-event Junior National qualifier, HS Section 1 Champion in the 100 Fly & 100 Back, and was a NY State top 8 finalist. 

He graduated from Ithaca College in 2014 with a B.S. in Health Science, with an emphasis in Exercise Science & Physiology. At Ithaca, Connor swam from 2010-2014 qualifying for NCAA Div. III and earning All-American time considerations. He held 3 Ithaca school records from 2010-2022. After graduating college, he traveled to Sydney, Australia where he worked as a swim coach for athletes of all ages. 

After Australia, he came back to work at the Club because of the wonderful relationships and positive environment he enjoyed here as a child. Connor is passionate about educating swimmers on proper biomechanics and how it applies to competitive swimming. Connor has also coached for several years as a head coach for Pound Ridge Swim Team and The Tokeneke Club in Darien CT. His hobbies include traveling, cooking, surfing, skiing, scuba-diving, wood-working, gardening and spending time with friends and family.
