Our Head Coach: James Gordon

Coach James is a native Texan who started swimming at age seven (7) with the South Houston Recreational Swim League (LO Tiger Sharks - formally the 'LO Sailors') and comes from a family of swimmers. This is where he discovered his love of water-sports and moved into swimming competitively with USA Swimming. Coach James  is certified in CPR/Lifeguarding/First Aid. 

He is proud to be a member of a long-standing, locally-owned company  that is located right here in the Quail Valley community. They have a long-standing tradition of giving back to Quail Valley events and initiatives as well as to the surrounding Fort Bend County community. His commitment to leading the QVST Dolphins swim families in a shared passion for the sport of swimming, is a continuation of this tradition. 

When he is not at the pool, Coach James is an avid teacher regarding the conservation of natural resources in Texas when hunting, thus preserving this Texas tradition for generations to come. 

We welcome Coach James to the QVST Dolphins - get ready for an AWESOME season!
