Our Head Coach, Christian Rasmussen, has been coaching the Polar Bears 16 years. Christian grew up in Walnut Creek. He started swimming when he was six, swam competitively through college and now swims and competes with the Walnut Creek Masters Swim Team. Christian coached a number of recreational, high school and year-round swim teams, before joining Rancho San Miguel. We are excited to have Christian bring his expertise in competitive swimming, as well as a great sense of fun to the Polar Bears!
When he is not coaching the Polar Bears, Christian offers swim lessons Rancho San Miguel Swim Club through his swim school Rasmussen Swimming.
Taylor Cossu has been swimming for the last 13 years of her life. Growing up on this team since the age of seven makes Taylor even more excited to be back on the Rancho San Miguel pool deck. In addition to swimming at Rancho San Miguel, she has swam competitively though the Walnut Creek Aquabears as well as competed in one year of college swimming. Currently, she is at Diablo Valley College, in hopes to transfer in the Fall of 2020 and swim at the school she attends. In addition to swimming, Taylor loves hanging out with her family and friends as well as traveling. Go Polar Bears!
