Introducing Our New Aquatic Manager - Trevor Wasserzieher"

Hello SCY Family! Let us introduce you to Trevor, our newest family member. Here is what Trevor would like for you to know about him.

My name is Trevor Wasserzieher and I am the Aquatics Manager of South Side and South Chicago YMCA.

Originally from St. Louis, I joined the Y back in 2009. Over the past eight years, I’ve continued my aquatics career in a total of six different YMCAs across the St. Louis and Chicago metropolitan areas. I’ve been fortunate to work at the South Side for the past three years. Now I am serving both the South Side and South Chicago YMCAs.

My favorite thing about the Y is how we are much more than a gym and swim--we are a community and a family. Every time I walk in the door, I can count on my Y family to support and encourage me to do better and accomplish more, and I hope you have experienced this first-hand as well.

My goal for the South Side and South Chicago Y communities is to continue to build and strengthen our pool programming that teaches the importance of water safety and drowning prevention. Every person should have knowledge of basic water safety skills, so come join us in the pool and talk to myself and the aquatics staff to find out what the Aquatics Department can do for you and your family.

Personal hobbies include spending time along the lakefront, whether that is jogging, biking, swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, or just watching the boats and relaxing in the sand.

Remember, don’t be afraid to get your feet wet and make a splash trying something new!
