Meet the STAR Coaches!

For your convenience, our coaches are available by email and cell.  For the benefit and safety of all swimmers, we ask that you not speak with coaches during practice times.  Many questions can be answered by reviewing the information on the website.  Questions specifically regarding training of your swimmer should be directed to your site coach.  For your convenience please give them a time that they may return your call.  If you have an immediate need click here.
