Coaching Staff

William R Barton

Head Coach

Email

With a coaching career that spans over 4 decades and two powerful countries, and a resume taller than he is, Coach Barton has placed swimmers in the Olympics, Pan American Game & many international competitions.  Having coached at Universities with names like Duke & Cornell, and Florida State, it’s easy to understand why he has so many coaching awards and honors at so many levels.  Even though his personal accomplishments include National, All American & NCAA championships, some of the many things his swimmers are so proud of are his World Records in the 200 & 400 Individual Medley and his 200 Butterfly events.  The other biggie in their minds is that, no matter what he might forget, he ALWAYS remembers every single one of their times & splits, for as long as he has coached them.  Parents also love that he believes studies come first.  CBA is thrilled to have Coach Barton as their Head Coach!

Coach Kondo is a 7 Time National Champion and Canadian record holder in the 50 meter sprint and 100 meter freestyle, and is the first Canadian born swimmer to break 23 seconds in the 50 meter freestyle event.  His first National Championship was attained in 1990 at the age of 17 and highest rankings in the world were 1st (LC season, 1993 Sprint eliminator meet in Nantes, France) and 4th in the 50m freestyle (Speedo World Rankings).

Blake Q Stevens

Coach

Email

Blake Stevens is a proud Corpus Christian who has always lived in Corpus Christi Texas. One of the things that makes Blake so proud to live in Corpus Christi  is being a part of its largest and fastest growing US Swim Team, the Coastal Bend All-Stars. Blake Stevens' competitive talents for swimming were discovered in his eighth-grade year during a physical education  swim program at Flour Bluff High School. He was told that he was faster then anyone on the team, after that he shortly joined. In high school he swam all four years and in his junior and senior year he went to State in the 50yd freestyle , the 100yd backstroke and a 200yd freestyle relay. He still holds the Flour Bluff High School record for the hundred backstroke with a time of 56.91. Blake's high school coach, Bill Barton, taught him lessons that not only apply to swimming but life as well. These lessons influenced Blake's many years of work in the aquatics industry as he lifeguarded,  taught swim lessons,  maintained and managed pools and coached swimming. Working for the City of Corpus Christi, CCISD, Delmar College and CBA Blake has worked for some of Corpus Christi's finest swimming institutions. Blake firmly believes that coaching is instructing, teaching, and learning.
