Meet the Coaches

Bruce Smith

Head of Youth Aquatics

Bruce started his coaching career as a teenager in NYC when he coached sailing, his primary sport growing up.  His swim coaching career began in 1993 when he was a substitute coach for the Stanford Masters. Two years later, in 1995, Bruce became the Aquatics and Fitness Director at Alpine Hills in Portola Valley.  In his 18 years at Alpine Hills, Bruce oversaw the growth of a swim lesson program from a seasonal operational to a successful year round program.  In 2003 Bruce became a founding member of Palo Alto Stanford Aquatics when the Alpine swim team merged with other local swim teams. Bruce continued running the Alpine Hills site of PASA through 2013.

In 2020, Bruce came to the Burgess Pool in Menlo Park to start a site of PASA in Menlo Park and to provide a home for the swimmers when Menlo Aquatics closed due to the pandemic.  Bruce continues now in his second year at the helm of the Menlo Park site of PASA and is excited to carry on the long tradition of wonderful youth aquatics programs in Menlo Park.
