Head Swim Coach and Aquatics Director
Email

Peter Verhoef was named Head Swim Coach and Aquatics Director for The Bolles School on November 26, 2018.

Verhoef brings with him a wealth of experience in national, international and Olympic competitions. During the past three years, he has earned acclaim as a Senior Coach and High Performance Director for SwimMAC, a globally competitive swimming program in Charlotte, N.C. There, he worked with the Senior 1 program – a group that includes the highest performing 15-18 year-olds – and also directed the program’s age 15 and over programs from state to national levels. Senior athletes from SwimMAC have achieved positions on the USA National Junior Team, won Junior National Championships, and recorded the highest number of scholastic All-Americans of any program in the country. Prior to that, Verhoef assisted in coaching SwimMAC's Team Elite program for Olympic level athletes from 2010-16. During this time, Team Elite athletes combined for a total of nine gold, four silver and one bronze. Throughout his tenure at SwimMAC, Verhoef helped guide strategic decisions including staff development, growth, team culture, member relationships and more.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of an internationally known swim program like Bolles and to work with young men and women to help them achieve their best level of success,” Verhoef said.

One of Verhoef’s many objectives with SwimMAC, which he looks forward to bringing to Bolles, is an emphasis on a culture of unity among the coaches and student-athletes in order to promote long term development of excellence in competition and beyond.

Prior to SwimMAC, Verhoef was the Assistant Head Coach for Men’s and Women’s swimming at Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina, coaching elite swimmers from 2013-15. In this role, he experienced all facets of leadership from the pool deck--including coaching, recruiting, scheduling, compliance, administration, travel and outreach. During his tenure there, Verhoef greatly contributed in assisting the team to win the 2015 NCAA DII Championships for both the men’s and women’s teams.

As a student-athlete, Verhoef found success in the pool and classroom at the University of Georgia where he received a Bachelor of Business Administration and double majored in Management and Management Information Systems in 2007 from the Terry College of Business. While at Georgia, he was a finalist at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Trials and represented the United States at the World Championships in 2007 where he also served as the Team USA Team Captain and earned a Silver medal at the World University Games in 2005. He was also the recipient of UGA’s Jeff Poppell Leadership Award in 2006, among many other honors.

In the two years prior to rejoining Bolles, Steele served as an assistant coach at Florida Gulf Coast University. She helped FGCU to a Coastal Collegiate Sports Association title in 2018, coaching the distance group including two individual champions.

Prior to FGCU, Steele coached for three seasons (2014-16) at the University of Arkansas, where she served two seasons as a graduate assistant before being promoted to an assistant coach in June 2016.

During her time at Arkansas, Steele assisted with on-deck coaching as well as administrative duties that included team travel, meals, equipment inventory and recruiting activities. A total of eight school records were broken under while Steele was on-deck at Arkansas, and she helped 10 swimmers advance to the NCAA Championships in her three seasons with the program.

Steele served as a camp counselor from 2012-14 at the University of Texas Longhorns Swim Camps where, along with her previous stint at Bolles, she had the opportunity to work with numerous Olympic and U.S. Junior National Team coaches as well as Olympic athletes.

Steele graduated with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Louisville in 2012. A four-year letter winner with the Cardinals, she earned Big East All-Academic Team honors following each season and helped Louisville to a Big East Championship in both 2011 and 2012. Capping off her career, Steele ranked third all-time in the 1,650 free and sixth in the 200 fly.

Additionally, during her graduate assistantship with the Razorbacks, Steele earned her master's degree in Sport and Recreation Management in May 2016 and was named the program's Most Outstanding Master's Student. In December 2017, Steele graduated from the NCAA Women’s Coaches Academy Class 43.
