Sarah Dodge

Coach

Email

Coach Sarah joined the WFLA Coaching Staff in the summer of 2016 as a summer league coach.  She began coaching summer league and club swimming (at CAT at the Long Center) while she was in high school, where an injury turned her focus from swimming to coaching swimming.  As a swimmer, with the Clearwater Aquatic Team, Sarah was a junior national level butterflier.  She always had a remarkable work ethic (Cashel was one of her coaches :)).  Sarah has a bachelors degree in medical technology, and a Master's degree in psychology.  She works in the laboratory at John Hopkins All Children's Hospital.  Her passion for the sport of swimming has brought her back to the pool deck, where WFLA is fortunate to have her working with our Bronze, Silver, and Gold swimmers. Sarah is an animal lover, whose fur kids consist of two french bulldogs and two cats.
