Martin Rajec Head Coach

I was born in Czechoslovakia. I graduated with the highest level of education (Master’s degree) in the field of swimming. I wrote my master’s thesis about competitive swimming and swimmers’ training plans. I was a successful swimmer for many years as well. I won the Slovak Championship in swimming multiple times and I have a bronze medal from the World Championship in water rescue swimming. I have experience as a swim coach in Europe and the United States. I was the head coach for two teams at the JCC in Palo Alto, CA. I also served as head coach at the YMCA in Redwood City, CA. Previously, I worked cooperatively with a team of coaches at Liberty Sports Club and the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. I also gave private swimming lessons to children and adults (University of Michigan) and coached 6-16 year olds in Brighton, MI.

Abby Polansky Assistant Coach

My name is Abby Polansky and I am a senior at Jamestown High School. I have been a member of the Kingspoint Swim Team since I was four years old. I have also been doing high school swimming since freshman year, and even made it to the state championship for 50 and 100 freestyle. My favorite events are free, back, fly, and the relays. I am also an expert at jumping for a dollar and greasy watermelon (Kingspoint Labor Day Picnic tradition!). I'm looking forward to meeting new swimmers as well as welcoming old faces. Get excited for the upcoming season, it's going to be a great one!
