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.
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
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!
I’m Alli Baginski and I coach
the Currents! I’m 23 years old and I’ve been swimming
since I was nine. I moved here from Pittsburgh in 2003 and joined
the swim team in 2004. Butterfly was my best and favorite stroke. I
loved swimming butterfly so much that in 2008 when I was only 13, I
had to have bilateral shoulder surgery. I didnt let that set me
back though. I went to states in the 100 backstroke my junior year
of highschool, but because my shoulders were not getting better
(even after surgery), I had to retire my cap and goggles before my
senior year. Although I had to cut my swimming career short, I
still had a burning passion for the sport and when I started
coaching, I knew this is where I could take that passion and
reflect it onto my swimmers. Even though I’m not in the water
anymore, being able to coach the much younger kids is much more
rewarding than any first place ribbon or medal. This is where I
Outside of swimming, I am obsessed
with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and hockey in general. I love
playing hockey, watching hockey, and going to games. I collect
Penguins memorabilia, hockey pucks, items from winning the Stanley
Cup in 2016 and 2017, and so on.
I also love to read Edgar Allan Poe.
I enjoy his short stories, and I am pretty sure I memorized his
famous poem, The Raven.
