Meet Our Aquatics Director!

Hello my name is Orlando. I’m the Aquatics Director here at the British Swim School NJ The Oranges and I am excited to make sure you have the best learning experience you can imagine. I’m originally from Santa Clara, Cuba and now live in Elizabeth, NJ.

My whole life has been about championship swimming and I have taught swimming for the last 15 years, almost 3 of those in the U.S.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and look forward to teaching all of our customers Water Survival Skills, proper Stroke Development and the joys of being in the water.

What is your life motto?

Water is my Passion … and everybody deserves to be a safe and happy swimmer.

Not many people know that I…

was fearful of water when I started at 5 years of age: with gentle instruction I overcame and progressed to be a Championship Swimmer on Cuba’s National Team for Juniors.
