She grew up in Columbus, Ohio and has over ten years of experience as a competitive club and high school swimmer and is a two-time Eagle Swim Camp veteran!

Coach Ryan Bubb

Eagle Swim Camps wants to send a WARM welcome to Coach Ryan Bubb who will be joining us this summer for both sessions!

Ryan Bubb joined the Florida Atlantic University swimming & diving team in the summer of 2021.

Bubb moved to FAU after serving as the founding head coach of the Midland University’s men’s and women’s swimming & diving programs. As the head coach from 2016-21, Bubb had three teams compete at the NAIA National Swimming & Diving Championships. The men’s and women’s team competed at the NAIA Championships in 2018-19 and the men’s team brought home back-to-back Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) Championships in 2019-20 and 2020-21.

During the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons at Midland, the NAIA Championships have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To make up for the lost competition this past year, the team competed at the Collegiate Swimming Championships in Fort Pierce, Florida. The men’s team placed third and the women’s team took home fourth.

Bubb led the men’s team to a 10th place showing at the 2019 NAIA National Championships in the team’s second year of existence. In just two seasons, he saw 30 individual qualifiers reach the national tournament on the men’s and women’s side. Bubb also served as the Conference Chair of the swimming division of the KCAC, which started in 2019.

Prior to Midland, Bubb spent two seasons as the head coach at Lincoln Southwest High School (2015-17). At Lincoln Southwest, Bubb’s women’s team earned back-to-back Nebraska State Championships while setting 10 state swimming records (seven individual and three relay). The Silver Hawks were ranked in the top 10 nationally in both of Bubb’s seasons as the head coach. During his year at the school, Bubb was the lead age group coach at Heartland Aquatics.

Bubb was a four-year varsity letterman and a part of a four-time Big Ten Championships-winning team at Ohio State University from 2010-14. He left Ohio State with a myriad of top 10 times across numerous events in the program’s all-time record book. As the team captain in 2014, Bubb was also a two-time Ohio State Scholar Athlete and two-time Big Ten All-Academic Team choice.

In 2012, Bubb participated at the Olympic Trial Qualifiers in the 200-meter butterfly. He also competed at the 2016 Olympic Trials in the 50-meter freestyle.

Bubb was a five-time Nebraska State Champion and broke two state records at Lincoln East High School. He was a member of the U18 USA National Team in 2010 that competed in Barcelona, Spain, and finished in third in the 50-meter freestyle at the United States Junior National Championships in 2009.

Bubb graduated from Ohio State with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in art and technology in 2015.

 

Coach Taylor Loewen

Taylor Loewen is in her first season as the assistant swim coach in 2021-22.

She arrives in Fort Myers after spending two seasons as a graduate assistant at Georgia Southern. In her two years, she helped the Eagles improve from an eighth-place finish at the CCSA Championships in 2020 to a sixth-place finish in 2021.

Prior to her time as a coach, she swam for four years at Campbell University. As a Camel, she set program records in the 50y breast (29.52), 100y breast (1:03.24), and the 200y breast (2:18.91) as well as the 200-medley relay (1:42.17).

 

Coach Josh Fleagle

Coach Josh grew up in St. Mary’s, Ohio and started swimming at the age of 7. He was homeschooled through high school and swam on the local YMCA team while growing up. At the age of 17, he won his first YMCA Nationals and qualified for his first Olympic Trials. He went on to win YMCA Nationals in 3 more events the following year. 

 
He attended The Ohio State University where he competed all four years while pursuing his Human Development and Family Sciences major; a major specifically geared towards helping and counseling individuals. Most summer seasons Josh would work with former OSU head coach Bill Wadley as a swim camp coach. During his collegiate swimming career, he was a part of two Big Ten Championship relays. In his junior season he was a Big Ten Champion in the 200 Free. Josh is a decorated All-American and has qualified for three Olympic Trials. At the 2016-Olympic Trials he competed in the semi-finals for the 100 Free. After graduation Josh became a professional swimmer and has qualified for three Olympic Trials and started coaching for the Bill Wadley Swim Acadamy.

He had some big time drops at FLAGs and placed top 8 in all of his events. He is so excited to be selected to go to Texas and compete at Zones. I can’t say thank you enough for the great camp experience that really reignited that spark and jump started his training this summer. I recommend your camp to everyone!

Why Eagle Swim Camps?

At Eagle Swim Camps we believe that swimming should be fun, educational and motivating. Anyone can attend a summer camp, but at our camp swimmers experience more than just stroke technique. We believe that summer camps should be about more than just looking at a black line and repeating drills. Summer camps are where young people learn incredible skills. Life skills, social skills, independent skills.

Our summer camps offer the opportunity to expand past the mundane back and forth in the pool. We offer the ability to interact with Olympic Gold Medalists/Former World Record holders, Climb a 3 story rock wall, Race under the lights, have a waterfront luau, and SO MUCH MORE!

Eagle Swim Camps are more than just swimming. At Eagle Swim Camps we equip our campers with the tools needed to reach and surpass all their goals, both in the pool and in life.
