Co-Head Coach

Hi! My name is Abby Hoffmann and I am one of the age group coaches for the 9-10 and 11-12 age groups. This will be my ninth year swimming for the Hills West Waves and my third year coaching. I've been a swimmer my whole life and have continued to swim at Cherry Creek High School. As a Creek swimmer, I am a first and second year varsity letter and will be going into my junior year.  My objective as a coach is to improve young swimmers' stroke technique and help them strive for their personal best! I am so excited to be part of the coaching staff again, and I can't wait for another amazing season!

Hi! My name is Kyra and I will be the age group coach for the 9-10s this summer. I have been a member of the Hills West Waves for 5 years now and this will be my 3rd summer as a Hills West Coach. I have been swimming competitively since moving to Colorado. I swim for Cherry Creek High School and I will enter my senior year at CCHS in the fall. Swimming for the Hills West Waves has been the best part of my summer for years so I am very excited to share that joy with other young swimmers on this team. My goal for the 9-10s is to try new things, be safe, have fun and love the sport. I can't wait to see you all at the pool!

I’m so excited to be coaching the 7-8 and 9-10 age groups this summer! This will be my tenth year swimming with the Hills West Waves and my second year as a part of the coaching staff. I have also swam with the Colorado Stars for 6 years and began swimming for Cherry Creek High School this year. My goal as a coach is for the swimmers to love being in the water and racing. Swimming is such a great sport and lifelong activity, so I hope to share my love of the sport with the swimmers. I’m looking forward to a great summer filled with fun times and fast swims!

Hi! My name is Sammy Hoffmann and I am so excited to be a coach in training this summer!  I am entering Cherry Creek High School as a freshman this upcoming August and swim on Aquawolves swim team year round.  I have been swimming for Hills West  since I was six years old and it has always been an amazing summer activity.  I love the swim team and can’t wait to help coach the six and under’s this year!
