Coaching Staff

Tim Baker

Head Coach

I am ecstatic to be back on deck coaching the TL Orcas this season! I joined the Orcas when I was nine, and I continued swimming as an Orca until I was eighteen. Then I swam at the collegiate level and coached the Orcas for 4 seasons. Believe me, this season is shaping up to be one of the best seasons ever, due to the strong coaching staff and the dedication and enthusiasm of the TL Orca swimmers and parents. So all of you Orcas get pumped up for another exciting and fun-filled year of swimming!
