I started year round swimming with DeKalb Aquatics in middle school and continued with Stephenson High School's swim team. I am now a student at Clayton State University, Morrow, Georgia.
Swimming has always been apart of my life to the point that I plan on doing it for the rest of my life. I want my swimmers to gain the same experience that I gained from the sport of swimming; having fun learning the sport, and developing a love for the sport that will last a lifetime.
Hey Guys, this is Steven Johnson. I am co-head coach of The MPST Sharks along with Coach Reena. Almost my entire life I have been involved with this team; from being on the team as a five year old till my final year as a senior swimmer at age 18; to working my way up from junior coach, assistant coach, to my current job as co-head coach. I love swimming with my whole heart and coaching even more than that.
I am currently attending the University of North Georgia and sadly there is not a local swim team that I can join, so sadly I have to find a new way to express myself athletically. Thus the beginning of my obsessive long-distance running. Everyone needs a way to stay strong and fit throughout the school year, if a pool is not accessible. You can lose a lot of muscle mass and speed between seasons if all you do is sit inside and play video games.
Swimming is a great sport that is both individualistic and team related. Yes, you are improving your own times to get better but at the same time you are remaining loyal to your team. The faster you go, the better your team does. I cannot wait for this 2018 season to start. I am really excited and can’t wait to see everyone. Good luck with the rest of your school year. Finish strong, school always comes first. J
Hello Sharks! I’ve been proud to be a part of the Sharks family for 9 seasons and am so excited to add another this upcoming season. I started swimming on the Sharks at the age of 7 and it was also my first competitive swim team. I currently swim for Stephenson High School, and have swam for many different swim teams. I’m excited to be a part of the Sharks team and I am looking forward to working with new and old faces this up coming summer.
I have been swimming on the Mountain Park Sharks summer league swim team since I was 7 years old. I quickly gained an extreme passion for the sport. Once I started high school, I knew I wanted to swim on the Parkview high school swim team. I swam the first two years of high school without any problems. Then at the beginning of my junior year of high school, I found out I would need to have shoulder surgery. I recovered from the surgery and was able to swim that next summer. I started my senior year happy I was able to swim. Then halfway through, I found out I would need a second shoulder surgery. I have had that second shoulder surgery and I am now ready and very excited to be able to swim in my final summer league season. I am also very excited to coach all of the swimmers and hopefully be able to get them to have as much of a love for swimming as I do.
