Andrae Abrahams

Head Coach

Email

I have been always been in love with the ocean and the water for as long as I can remember. I was that rambunctious child that would see a body of water and jump right in, so needless to say I had to learn how to swim the hard way! I had a community pool growing up and I was there almost everyday. I slowly became friends with the lifeguards and they truly were the ones that influenced and inspired me to pick up swimming and ultimately teaching other kids how to swim. I swam all through high school at both Forest Park and Hylton High. I later joined an off campus swim league in college because I went through a period where I doubted myself and my own ability. This is exactly what I would like to bring to the team, high confidence, great sportsmanship, a great ability to grow together, discipline and lots of FUN. I currently work for SwimKids Swim School and have been with them for six years. I have a couple new tricks up my sleeves that I cannot wait to bring out this summer. So let’s live up to our name MARLINS and get this new season started with a SWIFT SPLASH. VETS PARK will be a force to be reckoned with.
