Hi my name is Cassidy Brandes, I swam with the waves all throughout my childhood and have been involved in the YMCA since youth. I am excited to step back into the world of Competitive swimming. The Waynesboro Waves swim team means so much to me. I am so glad to have the Opportunity to Coah and give back to a Community that has given me so much.

I have been a member of the  Waynesboro Waves Coaching staff since 2015, however I have many years of experience as a swimmer and student athlete. I began swimming competitively when I was 9 years old, and was a member of the Hershey Country Club Swim Team, and the Hershey High School Swim Team.

 

I attended Lock Haven University, and have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Health Science, with a concentration in Community Health. While at Lock Haven University, I played lacrosse.

 

I live in Waynesboro with my husband, Jason and daughters Delaney, and Reagan. I first became involved with the Waynesboro Waves Swim Team when my oldest daughter, Delaney joined the team in 2013.  Both of my daughters are members of the Waves Swim Team.  

 

I am the Office Manager for The Presbyterian Church of Waynesboro, and also teach swim lessons at the YMCA. I believe EVERY child needs to learn the life skill of swimming, regardless of whether or not the plan to join the swim team!

 

I am looking forward to working with the amazing Waynesboro Waves swimmers, coaches, and parents and can’t wait to see the success of this swim season!
