Coach Dave Rollins

Currently in his seventh campaign leading the Green and Blue, Rollins brought over a decade of coaching experience at the club, high school and collegiate levels with him as he became the second head coach in program history. A standout collegiate athlete in his own right, Rollins was a nine-time NCAA All-American and national champion as a member of the University of Arizona swimming & diving team from 2002-06. In 2017, he was inducted into the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame.

In 2021-22, Rollins led the Eagles to another succesful season, leading the Green and Blue to a second-place finish at the CCSA Championships. He also coached numerous successful individuals as Wiktoria Czarncecka was named CCSA Swimmer of the Year while also being named Co-Swimmer of the Championships along with teammate Petra Halmai. At the CCSA Championships, the Eagles took home nine gold medals, including four relay gold medals.

In his fifth season with the Eagles in 2020-21, he led the program to its 10th CCSA Championship. Senior Petra Halmai was named the Swimmer of the Meet after sweeping the 100y and 200y breaststroke as well as the 200y IM. Halmai also led the Eagles to a win in the 200y medley relay along with Claire McAtee, Julia Rodriguez, and Tori Czarnecka. The 200y free relay team of Czarnecka, McAtee, Kaja Reinhardt, and Zuzu Rabiniak also took home the title.

Under the tutelage of Rollins, Halmai enjoyed an incredible 2020-21 season as she was named CCSA Swimmer of the Year for the second-straight season and qualifying for the NCAA Championships. At the NCAAs, she picked up six points across three events (100y and 200y breaststroke, 200y IM) securing a 32nd-place finish for the Eagles – finishing ahead of the likes of Power 5 institutions Florida State, Auburn, UCLA, Iowa, Penn State, and Duke. In the process, she became the first Eagle since 2016 to qualify for an NCAA individual final, doing so in the 200y breast. Her 11th place finish in the B Final set new FGCU and CCSA records and earned her an Honorable Mention All-America selection.

Halmai also became the sixth Eagle, and first under Rollins, in program history to swim in the Olympics as she represented Hungary in the 4×100 mixed medley relay in Tokyo, setting a national record in the process.

Rollins has also continued the tradition of academic success for the Eagle Swimming & Diving program as they received Scholar All-America Team accolades from the CSCAA for the 21st consecutive semester in the Spring of 2021. The fall GPA of 3.66 and the spring GPA of 3.60 are the two highest in program history, as is the team’s record cumulative 3.55 GPA at the conclusion of the Spring, 2021 term.

At the end of Rollins’ fourth season with the Green and Blue, the team captured second place at the 2020 CCSA Championships. Reese Wakefield collected Diver of the Meet honors, marking the second-consecutive year that the Eagles took home the accolade. Numerous members of the team collected individual first-place finishes, most notably of which was Petra Halmai’s record-shattering performance in the 200-yard breaststroke. Her time, which was four seconds off the previous mark, earned her an automatic bid to the 2020 NCAA Championships and checked in at 10th among the nation, the highest ranking any FGCU swimmer had achieved heading into the postseason. Though Halmai was unable to compete at the national meet – it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 national emergency – the Eagles were represented in the postseason by a pair of freshman divers, as both Wakefield and Delaney Nelson competed at the NCAA Zone B Diving Championships. 

In his third season at the helm, FGCU capped off the 2018-19 campaign with a 6-8 record along with a 2-1 mark in the CCSA as the Eagles placed second overall at the CCSA Championships. The Green and Blue racked up the second-most points in program history (1,668) as Gracie Redding was named the Most Outstanding Female Swimmer of the Meet for a second straight season. She captured the 50 and 100 free events. Meanwhile, Megan Wakefield was dubbed the Most Outstanding Female Diver of the Meet after taking both the 1 and 3-meter titles.

During his second season with the Green and Blue, Rollins guided the program to its second CCSA title in as many years, giving FGCU four-straight and its ninth crown in a span of a decade. At the conclusion of the meet, he received his second-consecutive CCSA Coach of the Year. By season’s end, FGCU had a swimmer represented at the NCAA Championships for a seventh straight season as Christina Kaas Elmgreen participated in the 100 and 200 fly events. The Eagles capped off the that season going 7-2 overall with an unblemished 2-0 mark in conference action. FGCU tied a program record with nine student-athletes collecting CSCAA honors as the team landed a spot on the Scholar-All America team. Elmgreen highlighted the bunch with First Team honors. All said, FGCU posted a 3.43 GPA to end the 2018 spring semester.     

In his first season with the Green and Blue, Rollins immediately built upon the winning legacy that had been established in the program as FGCU won its eighth CCSA Championship in nine years and sent swimmers to the NCAA Championships for the sixth-straight season. Rollins, who was named the CCSA Coach of the Year, led the 200 free relay team to a 15th place finish at the NCAA Championships and saw the quartet earn CSCAA Honorable Mention All-American honors – becoming just the second relay team in program history to do so. At the end of the week, FGCU turned in the third-best finish in program history as the Eagles tied for 41st – finishing ahead of the likes of Alabama, Notre Dame, Duke, Rutgers and others. 

That season, the team not only excelled in the pool by tying a program record with 12 dual meet wins, but also turned in its best semester in the classroom with a program best 3.52 GPA. The Eagles were named a CSCAA Scholar All-America team for the 13th straight semester, while a record nine student-athlete earned First Team or Honorable Mention Scholar All-American accolades. FGCU was one of seven CCSA programs to receive the recognition and matched Miami for the highest GPA turned in by a Division I women’s program in Florida. 
  
In four seasons with the Buckeyes, Rollins worked in multiple capacities including serving as the recruiting coordinator and director of operations to go along with his coaching duties. Promoted from assistant coach to associate head coach of the men’s team in April 2016, he helped lead Ohio State to four consecutive top-three finishes at the Big Ten Championships, including a runner-up finish in 2015, as well as four straight top-18 finishes at the NCAA Championships.
 
During his tenure at Ohio State when the men’s team posted a 40-5 (.889) dual-meet record, Rollins worked primarily with the mid-distance and stroke swimmers while also collaborating with the women’s coaches and student-athletes during the season. On the men’s side, Rollins helped mentor multiple student-athletes to a total of 74 Academic All-Big Ten selections, 37 All-American honors, 14 individual and relay school records – all but five events – and six individual Big Ten championships.
 
Prior to Ohio State, he was the head coach of the Cincinnati Marlins while also serving as an assistant coach for St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, from 2010-12. With the Marlins, Rollins oversaw all aspects of running a satellite program including scheduling practices, conducting workouts and mentoring assistant coaches. His contributions resulted in dramatic results as the Marlins captured three Ohio Age Group Championships. Rollins also worked with Olympic Trials qualifiers, National and Junior National qualifiers, and national and state record holders. Additionally, his efforts with St. Xavier were equally impressive as he was a part of two Southwest District Titles and Ohio Division I State Championships while coaching 11 All-Americans.
 
Rollins’ coaching career began during the 2006-07 season – while still fulfilling his curriculum requirements at Arizona – when he served as an assistant coach for Tucson Ford Dealers Aquatics under his former coach and American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) Hall of Famer Frank Busch. During his first season in the profession, Rollins worked with all levels of swimmers, ranging from novice swimmers to state champions, sectional champions, Junior and Senior National qualifiers and Olympic Trials qualifiers.
 
After moving to Flagstaff, Ariz., in 2007, Rollins served as an assistant coach at Northern Arizona University for three seasons while also taking over head coaching duties for the Flagstaff Peaks Aquatics Club. In both capacities, he played a major role in impacting the quality and growth of the programs, highlighted by 12 school records at NAU and moving Peaks into the USA Bronze Medal Club category.
 
A 2007 graduate of Arizona with a degree in interdisciplinary studies, Rollins made a name for himself as a member of the Wildcats swimming & diving program. Along with his aforementioned NCAA All-American and national champion honors, Rollins is a two-time Olympic Trials qualifier (2004, ’08) and a USA Swimming National Championship finalist. While at Arizona, he set four school records and became the fastest American breaststroker in history – a record that stood for six years. He captained the Wildcats his senior year and still holds a pair of all-time top-10 performances in the 100 breaststroke (52.68) and 200 IM (1:44.42). Due to his accomplishments with the Wildcats, Rollins has been named a member of the 2017 University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame Induction Class. 
 
A native of Brockton, Mass., he and his wife, Caroline Keefe Rollins, reside in Fort Myers with their three children, Alice, Elliot and Anna.

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.
