Matt Finnigan is the co-founder and head coach for Race Swami. Finnigan has been named UHSAA Coach of the Year four times, a Western Region Coach of the Year once, and led Judge Memorial Catholic High School Girls’ teams to seven state titles over nine years (two 2nd place finishes). Many of Matt’s graduates continued their respective swimming careers at college programs from coast to coast. He has coached several All-Americans and graduated nearly 200 athletes during his tenure at Judge Memorial. Coach Matt grew up in the swimming hotbed of Northern California’s Bay Area. Swimming competitively for more than 16 years for clubs straddling the Bay Area’s peninsula, Matt’s most notable tutelage in the sport came under the direction of the late Kevin Perry, whom he competed for for six years at the Los Altos Aquatic Club. Under the guidance of Perry, Matt was named an All-American as a flyer and distance freestyler. He continued his swimming career at Florida State University. Aside from serving as the head coach at Race Swami, Matt is also an ASCA Level III coach, he’s Race Club (Florida) certified and currently serves as Utah Swimming’s Diversity Coordinator.
