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. There is a Coach's Notebook at all practices - please use it to let us know of your planned absences (vacations, etc.).

IMPORTANT: If you know that you will be away for a meet, you can make a note of that in the EVENTS section of this website.

For all administrative questions, such as registration, safety, or policy issues, please contact one of the Board members.
