Director: Johan C. Lopez 

Johan C. Lopez has over a decade’s worth of college coaching experience. He has coached multiple divers to NCAA qualifying marks and has attended several NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships. His divers have received All-American Honors and Academic All-American Honors. In addition, his divers have received numerous Diver of the Year awards at their respected Conference Championships. As a coach, Lopez has been awarded Coach of the Year for multiple conferences, where he has received individual and Coaching Staff of the Year awards.

In the summer of 2019, Lopez was selected to participate in the United States Olympic Committee Coach Accelerator Program. The Coach Accelerator Program (CAP) provides national and junior national team level coaches with a foundational base of high-performance coaching knowledge and skills that are practical and scientifically based. This is a select program which past coaches have found invaluable for improving their coaching effectiveness and moving one step closer to becoming an Olympic coach. As a member of the CAP, Lopez will continue to receive education annually to continue his development as a coach.

In the summer of 2016, Lopez was appointed to the NCAA Committee for Division III Swimming & Diving for four years. During his final year on the committee, Lopez was unanimously voted to be the Chairman of the Committee. He was the first diving coach to ever be appointed to the position. The purpose of the committee is to develop policies and procedures governing the administration and conduct of the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships. As the chairman, Lopez was responsible for sustaining and advancing the Association’s mission, traditions, values, and reputation.

In the fall of 2016, Lopez was appointed to the USA Diving Senior Rules Subcommittee, nominated by Leslie Hasselbach Adams (High Performance Manager at USA Diving). The Rules Committee interprets technical diving rules and considers proposed amendments to the rules for recommendation to the Board of Governors. The Senior Subcommittee, in particular, deals with rules for athletes that are involved and compete for USA Diving at the International/Olympic level of the sport. Lopez has been an active member of USA Diving since 2008.

Lopez earned his Bachelor of Science in Dietetics, Food & Nutrition from Herbert. H. Lehman College in 2009, where he was a member of the Men’s Swimming & Diving Team. He was named team captain his senior year, CUNYAC diving champion (2007, 2008, 2009), CUNY All-Star (2007, 2008, 2009), and Diver of the Year (2007, 2008, 2009). In addition, he contributed to the success of Lehman Lightning team’s four-year winning streak at CUNY Swimming & Diving Championship Team. He then went on to earn a Master's Degree in Sports Management at Southern New Hampshire University where he graduated with the honor of "Outstanding Graduate" with a perfect 4.0 GPA.

LEADERSHIP

John Mees – tenure w/ Future Stars – 14 years.
After serving as site-director of our Southampton location for 10 years, John decided to move closer to home and launch our St. Joseph’s site.  After growing St. Joe's into a successful location, John set his sites on Brentwood to do the same. John is passionate about education and summer camp. He believes that sports and academics have the potential to bring out the best (or worst) in each of us.  With that in mind, John designed and implemented the character-development curriculum inherent in all program offerings at St. Joe’s and will bring those same principles to Brentwood.

John has taught honors Spanish at Mount Sinai High School for the past 14 years. In addition to his classroom duties, John also coaches all three seasons comprising boys varsity golf, girls varsity basketball, and girls varsity golf. He has coached numerous league champions and all-state performers in golf, and helped lead the girls varsity basketball to Mt. Sinai's first Suffolk County title in 2017 and another in 2019.

John received his bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill and went on to earn master's degrees from both the University of Connecticut and Stony Brook University.
John lives in Sayville with his wife and son.

FAQ

Who are your staff members?
Our staff comprises coaches, teachers, instructors and collegiate-student athletes who share a passion for working with children and have experience and know-how in their respective fields.

What are the ratios?
Typically, between 8-10:1. Exceptions are Tennis (6:1) and Rising Stars (4:1)

What happens during inclement weather?
Camp still runs as planned. If possible, we prefer to have our programs continue with their normal programming. However, if and when inclement weather mandates we go indoors, we have ample indoor space to utilize at main campus. Occasionally, the multi-sport program will take off-site trips on rainy days, such as bowling, air-trampoline, etc. 

What happens on really hot days?
Our experienced coaching staff will take additional water/shade breaks throughout the day. There are shaded areas and tents around the athletic fields where groups can rest between activities. Campers are able to cool-off by our misting fans or even take a quick run through the sprinklers that we turn on. Pool time and/or Water Park time would also be extended for that day, not to mention access to air-conditioned indoor space.

Registered campers must bring their own lunch at the Brentwood site. Please pack lunch in a cooler type bag, as there is no refrigeration for lunches. 

There are plenty of drinking water fountains throughout campus, in addition to vending machines should your camper wish to purchase a drink during the day.
