Jeremy Zidzik joined the Anchor Bay boys swim and dive team as a freshman. He had never competed, dove, or swam a single lap in the pool. Over a year later, Jeremy has improved exponentially with the help of his incredible coaching staff and team that embraces effort and embodies a high level of sportsmanship.
As a student athlete with Type 1 Diabetes, Jeremy has faced challenges but continues to push through managing his chronic condition during intense, long training. Jeremy is a goal setter, so throughout the season he sets them and will already have the next goal in mind.
“Sometimes we, as grandparents, worry about the state of the world but Jeremy our grandson does give us hope for the future.”Nanna & Grandy (A.K.A. Jeremy's 'Australian fan club')
His team has created a bond like a family and a brotherhood. Jeremy feels honor-bound to the team which helps motivate him. Coach Kevin has inspired Jeremy to have more confidence while swimming and heartened his love for the water. Coach Riley Shea has pushed Jeremy through new methods of training, making him a better swimmer. He’s on his way to reaching his goals of going to the MISCAs and swimming in college!
