In 2007, he left his home country in order to pursue his goal in becoming a great swimming coach. He has a total of 12 years of coaching experience; 4 years in Japan and 7 years in the US. His passion for swimming and his cultural awareness makes him a unique and creative minded coach. In the few years that he has been here, he has adapted to the diverse coaching and managing styles of the American culture. His willingness to stand by the poolside 365 days shows his love and dedication to help his swimmers improve and overcome their challenges.
He has a special working visa that no one normally gets because one needs to get approval from the government. He is the only coach from abroad who is a H1-b visa holder also working at a swim club legally in USA. Kohei did not know any English when he moved to the United States. Now he can talk to everyone fluently. You will be surprised to know how much he was challenged to add English as a second language.
He appreciates all of the coaches who trust him by giving him the opportunity to coach the varsity group for the past 5 years. In addition to his responsibilities as the varsity group coach, he will continue to be the assistant to all coaches - Tony, Tisha, Carlene, Janet, Hilary and PASA pro team during the 2016 season. He will also be supporting all of Rinconada‘s programs this season.
Kohei is a fun and humorous guy with a lot of passion for swimming. He enjoys socializing with his Japanese and American friends during the weekends. He often attends BBQs and goes to the popular ramen joints in the bay area. He also enjoys watching mixed martial arts and professional wrestling and has an ever-growing collection of sneakers. He is married to his Japanese wife and they had their first baby this year. His son was born here, in the USA and his name is Kento. Kento is an American citizen!

The Rinconada Site of PASA will hold evaluations for prospective new swimmers August 31-Sept 2, from 5-6pm at the Rinconada pool in Palo Alto. All new swimmers wishing to try-out should attend an evaluation on Wednesday, August 31.
Swimmers who qualify should plan to return on Thursday, September 1 and Friday, September 2.
*Note: evaluations for 8 and under swimmers will be held on Aug 31 and Sept 1 only. To get on the 8+U tryout list, email Coach HIlary, after which you will be given the day and time for your assessment.
Swimmers who attend tryouts must meet the minimum group requirements for each age group. Swimmers who are 8 and under must be able to continuously swim 25 yards of both freestyle & backstroke, and not be fearful of jumping in the pool from the side. Swimmers 9 and older must be able to swim all four competitive strokes.
Swimmers should arrive prepared to swim in appropriate swimwear, with a swim cap if you have one. Goggles are required. Parents must remain in the covered area on the southern side of the pool, not on the bleachers or on the pool deck. Please refrain from talking with the coaches during tryouts, as they are busy assessing the swimmers.
Swimmers who participate will either be placed in a group (space permitted), referred to another PASA site or receive a recommendation to continue with swim lessons. Swimmers who already have experience swimming on a year-round swim team should directly contact the appropriate coach for that swimmer's age group.
