USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Kerry O'Brien Coaches Award

Recipient: Jan Peluso
Year: 2013
LMSC: Virginia

In his three years of coaching the Peluso Open Water Masters, Jay Peluso has brought together two different groups--swimmers and triathletes--using his skills to get both to coexist for everyone’s mutual benefit. As both an athlete and coach, Jay recognizes the need for collaboration with other fitness organizations in his area through partnerships and sharing of expertise. Incorporating this, alongside his ability to fuse creativity, structure, and a systematic approach to his coaching plays into the growth that POWM has experienced in the Virginia LMSC.
