Coaching Staff

Jane Hansen

Head Coach

Email

Coach Jane began her swimming career in 1976 on Ann Curtis swim team in Marin County, CA at the age of 5.  She was taught to swim by Olympic Gold medalist, Ann Curtis Cuneo.  Growing up in Marin and in the Houston, Texas area she swam for the Woodlands swim team, Indian Valley Aquatic Club, Terra Linda Orcas and SwimMarin. In high school Jane swam for her Terra Linda Trojans and began playing water polo in her sophomore year (the first girls team).  In her Senior year she was the first girl ever to be on the boy's Varsity team.  She played water polo in college at UCSD, winning 2 National Championships.  She was also a member of the Junior National water polo team and was chosen to train at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

Coach Jane has taught swim lessons since the age of 15, as well as coaching high school water polo and swimming.  She has also  been a masters swim coach in Sonoma for several years.

Coach Jane has been a teacher and coach in the Sonoma Valley for since 1998, teaching both first grade and PE at St. Francis Solano school and coaching youth soccer.  "Coaching and teaching go hand in hand. Working with young athletes everyday and seeing them work so hard inspires me to be the best coach I can be." 

When her own children became old enough to join a swim team, Jane was disappointed that none existed in Sonoma.  In 2007 she decided to ressurect the Sonoma Sea Dragons.  Pulling from children that she had taught swim lessons and stroke classes to, she started the team.  It has since grown to over 100 children.

In the spring of 2010, Jane and her husband, Tom, took over ownership of Sonoma Aquatic Club and she is busy building the aquatics program.  Not only does this secure a home for the Sonoma Sea Dragons, but it also provides a feeder program through the lessons.  Her goal is to provide first class aquatics programs to Sonoma families and put Sonoma back on the swimming map!

Coach Codie started swimming when she was six years old with none other than the Sonoma Sea Dragons. She then swam for Twin Valley Aquatics and later went to Westside Aquaducks to swim under Dea Ann Joslin. After two years of swimming for Sonoma Valley High School, she transferred to Maria Carrillo in Santa Rosa where she brought home two NBL titles and appeared at NCS.

Following high school she went to Santa Rosa Junior College for two years to swim under Jill McCormick. While there, she earned Academic All-American titles in five events along with being rewarded the Commitment to Excellence Award. She then transferred to Pepperdine University and majored in Interpersonal Communication while also swimming for their DI swim program. As a Wave, Codie helped her team reach Academic All-American status, received Scholar-Athlete recognition, and was nominated for an Arthur Ashe Award.

Coach Codie hopes to share her love of swimming with her swimmers while also teaching them to work hard and be committed to their sport. As a coach, Codie hopes to instill confidence in her swimmers as she helps them to achieve their goals by creating both a fun and hard-working environment. Being born and raised in Sonoma, Coach Codie is very excited to be part of the reemergence of aquatic life in Sonoma and looks forward to making sure it stays.
