Rockaway Swim Coach Guides Team to Victory
The Flushing “Aquacades,” coached by Steven C. McCartney, author of the Rockaway Walks fitness column, were crowned the 2013 Borough Cup Swim Champions on May 19th. Along with fellow coaches, Hank, Gary, Florence and Ken, McCartney was able to guide the team to victory and come out on top of the Citywide Aquatics swim program which includes 12 teams and more than 500 registered athletes ages 6-17.
McCartney hopes to get a local team started. “My goal is to start a swim team in Far Rockaway out of Parks Citywide Aquatics,” McCartney said. For more information about Parks’ swim programs, call Parks Citywide Aquatics at 718-760-6969.
