Coach Shandra founded Riptide Swim Team in 2002. She's been coaching swimming since the age of 14 (as a volunteer coach for her neighborhood summer swim team), swam at the College of William and Mary, and has been a USA/PVS swim coach since 2002. In addition to running Riptide, she is the proud mom of 4 amazing kiddos.
