Meet our Hidden Hollow Coaches

Hidden Hollow Swim Team Head Coach Al Cushman

"Hi there! Coach Al here! To me, swimming is the best sport and exercise anyone can do! It’s my passion and I enjoy helping others gain their confidence in the water. I have been involved the swimming community for my entire life. I started out at the Pottstown YMCA with swim lessons as a toddler and eventually qualified for nationals in multiple events as a junior and senior in high school. I swam for Spring-Ford High school where I became an all-American in the 100yd butterfly. From there, I was recruited and swam for the University of Pittsburgh. Shortly after that, I got into coaching where I lead the OJR age group program to their 1st league championship! Then, I coached at Laurelwood summer swim club, ACAC, and Spring Valley high school. It’s an honor to be here at Hidden Hollow. I look forward to being a part of this great organization and helping this team’s reach its true potential!"

Assistant Swim Coach Riley Signor

"Hi, My name is Riley Signor. I started swimming at Knowlton Swim Club when I was six years old. I started swimming competitively at Penncrest High School during my freshman Year. I decided to continue my athletic career with swimming and softball at Fairghly Dickinson University. This Year, I focused on Breastroke and Butterly and the 200 IM. During my freshman season, I placed in the top 25 in the 100 Fly and 100 breast at MACS. My favorite part of summer swim is having fun with teammates and friends. I can't wait to meet everyone, and have a great season!"
