Coaches & Directors

We are here to support your needs. If your questions are related to workouts, meets, events, goal setting, and other swimming related needs, please contact one of the coaches. For all questions related to administrative, such as dues, safety, or policy issues, please contact one of the board members.

Our regular coaches on Maui are: Malcolm Cooper, Dave Rostetter, Nancy Page, Toni Sinnott, Sandy Drake, and Jim O'Brien.  Our coaches on Molokai are Jessie Ford, Jesseca Kalawe-Oswald, and Amanda Labriola.  Most of our coaches continue swimming, officiating, playing water polo, both as Masters (adult swimming) and with regular ocean swims; and a few coaches register and participate in the USA-S meets.  Malcolm (sprint free, back and fly) was both High-School & NCAA Div I All-Americans (i.e.; finalists at College Div I Championships). Kevin Drake (distance free, IM and fly) was an NCAA Div I multiple All-American at UoPacific and Olympic Trials finalist in the 400 IM.

Nancy was born and raised in Idaho.  She started swimming recreation leagues at the age of eight. At 14, she became a lifeguard at her local pool and at 16 she began teaching swim lessons. All Red Cross Certified.

In 2000, Nancy moved to Arizona where she continued to lifeguard and teach. At the Arizona Country Club and the Phoenix Country Club, she started coaching and continued for five years. On the move again, she was one of two coaches for the Prescott YMCA Team for a year.

Nancy took a break from coaching to grow her family, but started teaching backyard lessons again when her children were small.  She taught all four of her children to swim along with dozens of other little ones.

In 2012, Nancy became Head Coach her first USA registered team, the Winnemucca Whitewater Team. She coached that team for two years before moving here to Maui where she now coaches the Intro and Bottlenose groups with the Maui Dolphins.

Nancy is very passionate about teaching little ones to swim. She enjoys nothing more than watching her children perform so well at something that she loves so much.
