Assistant Coaches

Sydney Matthews
Head Assistant Coach

I am really looking forward to being a swim coach this year! This will be my 14th season with the team. Along with swimming for the Cardinal, I swim for Northwest Guilford High School. Summer is my favorite time of the year. I always look forward to swim team and seeing all the kids. I have made some of the best memories during summer swim. When I’m not coaching or lifeguarding you’ll probably see me tanning at the pool! I cannot wait to see all of our new and returning swimmers very soon. Hope to have a great season!

Reid Rouse
Assistant Coach

What’s up Cardinal family! My name is Reid Rouse, and this will be my third year coaching for the Cardinal Swim Team. I graduated two years ago from Northwest Guilford High School, and I am currently a soccer player at the University of Lynchburg. I have been around the Cardinal my whole life, beginning Chirps when I was four years old. I love getting to know and joking around with all the kids. I am also incredibly passionate about improving the Cardinal community. One fun fact about me is that I am a huge UNC fan! I am super excited for the season, and I cannot wait to work with your kids!
