Troy High School’s most recent addition is Dive Coach, Coach McRobbie McLellen, or Coach "Rob." Around the pool deck between coaching and competing himself as a high school and college All-American diver, Coach Rob has over two solid decades of experience in the dive community. 

His competitive background earned Coach Rob a full-scholarship to Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida before moving to Southern California. It was here where he went on to coach high school, collegiate, and club championship levels, only to open his own dive academy when he realized there were no springboard or platform diving lesson programs in the Newport Mesa communities here in Orange County. 

Coach Rob followed his passion and began his coaching career at Marina High School in Huntington Beach. At Marina High School, his team was crowned league champions and was home to multiple NISCA Diving All-Americans. During his tenure as High School Dive Coach, Coach Rob earned a spot on the Selection Committee for NISCA All-Americans in Springboard diving.

 

Alongside four-time Olympic coach, Scott Reich, Coach Rob, trains the SoCal Divers, an Internationally recognized springboard and platform diving program producing student athletes that perform in the top 10% of the USA as well as earn Division I college diving scholarships. And at Golden West College, he coached under Mark Schubert, the eight-time U.S. Olympic Swimming Coach where he was able to hone his coaching skills even more.

 

In 2017, Coach Rob became Diving Coordinator for LA84 Foundation’s Summer Splash Program. Here he helped establish free access for inner city youth to the Olympic Aquatic disciplines of swimming, springboard diving, synchronized swimming, and water polo. He was also responsible for training over 100 coaches on proper diving mechanics, pain free progressions, and team management. 

 

Coach Rob’s impressive resume includes Head Coach for Chapman University where he produced three NCAA qualifiers and a double conference champion. After a decade at Chapman, McLellan became the Head Diving Coach for the Pomona College and Pitzer College Sagehens.

 

To our good fortune, in Spring 2023, Coach Rob inherited the FJUHSD dive program and along with Troy High School, he found himself training all of the high school dive programs throughout the District where he is determined to bring home multiple championship titles.

Under the leadership of 2023's Freeway League Swim Coach of the Year, Troy High School’s Head Coach for the Swim & Dive program, Coach Summer Driessen, our Warrior student-athletes can officially call 2023 the fastest season Troy Aquatics has seen in over a decade. Not only did our Warriors break both school and league records while improving their PB, but Coach Driessen made sure these kids would understand what it would feel like to be champions at the local, regional and states levels. And she made good on her word. Our Warriors clenched the 2023 Freeway League Championship title before heading to the CIF-SS Ford Championship and the CIF State Championship.

 

It is worth mentioning that under her guidance as Assistant Coach, Troy's Boys' Water Polo earned the title of Freeway League Champions at the Varsity level, while the JV team secured 2nd place in both the Freeway League and the JV Garden Grove Tournament. We should have known immediately that fresh off of a victorious season, Coach Driessen, was just getting started. She quickly found herself at the helm of Troy High School's Swim & Dive program for both the boys (D1) and girls (D2) teams paving the 2023 spring season way with broken record after broken record on both the Troy High School and Freeway League levels. 

 

A graduate of Huntington Beach High School, Coach Driessen was a vital asset to both the Varsity Swim and Varsity Water Polo teams for all four years. Throughout her 13 years of competitive swimming, she also performed at the club level for Golden West Swim and Nova Aquatics.

 

Having earned her Bachelor of Arts in History, and Masters of Education from California State Polytechnic University, Coach Driessen is currently a faculty member of Troy High School’s Social Science Department teaching AP European History.

 

This is Coach Driessen's first year as Head Coach for the boys' and girls' swim team and under her leadership, numerous athletes have already shattered Troy High School's existing records set by past swimmers, broke Freeway League records, and countless have scored their PB. Thanks to her watchful eye, and her keen coaching skills, by mid-season, close to 20 swimmers had already qualified for CIF or clocked consideration times.

 

Coach Driessen's unwavering dedication has earned the loyalty, respect, and dedication of our Warrior student-athletes, the aquatics community, and fellow coaches, who named her Freeway League Swim Coach of the Year for 2023. Congrats, Coach Driessen on making Troy High School’s Swim Team the “Fastest in over a decade!”
