Meet Our Coaches
Head Coach Eric Masood
I was born in Illinois and relocated to Fredonia, NY in 1999. Upon moving to Fredonia I became a Hammerhead swimmer and remained for 12 years. During my HHSC years I also swam for Fredonia High school and concluded my competitive swimming career at Jamestown Community College were I earned Junior College All-American Honors. My coaching experiences began in 2011 through current. My coaching theory is based on yardage, technique, and swimmer desire.
Hello All! My name is Courtney Cutter. I am a senior at Fredonia State University majoring in Photography with a minor in Art History. I grew up in Clarence, NY and graduated from Clarence Senior High School - swimming varsity for all 4 years. I have been coaching and teaching swim lessons since I was 14 at Clarence Learn to Swim. There, I have worked with children of all ages with different swimming abilities to help better themselves in not only swimming, while focusing on valuable life saving skills. I have worked with children with disabilities in the Adaptive Swim program offered through Clarence Learn to Swim, and coached the older swimmers for the Special Olympics. This is my second year at HHSC and look forward to seeing some familiar faces, and new ones! Can't wait for a great year!
Hi families! My name is Taylor Chwalinski. I am a sophomore at Fredonia and I am majoring in Childhood Education concentrating in Spanish with a middle school extension. I am from West Seneca, NY and went to West Seneca West High School. I was on the varsity team since 8th grade, and I was also captain of my team for 2 years. On my high school team, I went to ECIC and Sectionals all four years. As for my coaching experiences, I have helped coach TTAC swimmers ages 7-18 and I have also done Learn to Swim there for 2 years. Recently, I have helped coach Hamburg’s club team ages 7-18 and have done Learn to Swim there as well. Over the summer, I worked at Michael Phelps Swim School.
