WHAT HAS SWIMMING TAUGHT
ME - Swimming
for the Folsom Sea Otters has taught me the importance of teamwork
and that hard work in practice is rewarded at meets. It has
not only given me the basic skills necessary for swimming, but it
has given me friendships and memories that I will never
I have swam with the Folsom Sea Otters for 3 years , going on my
4th. I also enjoyed being a Volunteer Coach for one
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Swimming has taught me many things, like
personal time management and how to work with and coach a
variety of fun swimmers.
I have been a Den Chief working with kids 10 and under. I
have also completed the El Dorado Hills Junior Life Guard
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Participating with the Folsom Sea Otters
has taught me the value of being part of a team, developing strong
friendships, and that hard work pays off.
I have been swimming for the Folsom Sea Otters since I was 5 years
old, and have been a Volunteer Coach in the past. I have a
little experience with competitive swimming for the Marlins and
Wahoos, but love coming back to the Otters.
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Swimming has taught me that teamwork is key to
success, and that listening to the coaches is definetly
needed. It has also taught me that practice is the most
important thing for any sport, and that it shows at the
meets. It has given me the opportunity to become better at a
sport while having a ton of fun along the way.
This is my 9th year on the Folsom Sea Otters and my first year as a
Swimmer Coach. I love to swim and have friendly competitions
with my friends. My favorite stroke is butterfly. I am
a Boy Scout working towards Eagle rank. I have held
leadership positions in my Troop and have taken leadership classes
through the Boy Scouts.
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Swimming has taught me many valuable
lessons. One of those lessons is to never give up. No
matter how fast you are, there will almost always be someone who is
faster. The only way to compete with them is to practice hard
and never let defeat discourage you. No matter how hard the
drills we do at practice are, you need to persevere. Even if
you can't do all of the laps, at least you know you did your
best. Another lesson I have learned is to have good team
spirit. Rooting on your teammates really encourages them to
swim harder. Sometimes that is what helps the beat
others. Be proad of your team, it doesn't matter if we win,
it only matters that we did our best and are trying to
improve. One of my fovorite things about this team is how
everyone will try to help you make yourself a stronger
I have 10 years of swimming experience; 8 of those years being on
the Folsom Sea Otters team. I have worked with young children
as a leader in training for the AWANAS boys and girls club. I
served specifically as an assistant leader. This will be my
first year as a Swimmer Coach, following in my sister's
footsteps. I am really looking forward to working with all
the Otters and Jr. Otters during this season.
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Swimming has taught me many thing. I
have gained experience and an incredible sense of satisfaction when
I improve my personal best time and contribute to the team spirit,
success, and camaraderie. Swimming has also taught me what
commitment means. Commitment to me means going to all the
practices on time, giving the team your best effort, and supporting
one's teammates. Most importantly, swimming taught me that
hard work pays off.
I have been swimming the past 7 years with the Folsom
Tigersharks. This will be my first year with the Folsom Sea
Otters! I also swam for the Vista Del Lago High School swim
team. This will be my 3rd year coaching. I have coached
swimmers ages 4-10.
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Swimming has taught me teamwork and leadership
capabilities. Swimming has also helped me make many great
friends through the fun environment.
I have been swimming for the last 7 years. My first 5 years
were spent at the Sunrise Sharks where I broke a relay record for
the 200 free relay for 15-18 girls. Then the following year,
I moved to Rollingwood Rockets where I had broken three records,
one for 50 fly and two relays. I have also been a varsity
swimmer since my freshman year at Oakmont High School. My
coaching experience consists of teaching swim lessons at
Rollingwood for children ages 6 months - 13 years. As well as
providing positive feedback to younger kids on previous teams and
correcting technique for their strokes.
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Hours spent training in the pool, working
towards personal goals has taught me the value of hard work and
commitment. Pushing past your limits to strive to the best
ability you can perform is what swimming has taught me in the past
7 years. Swimming has also taught me to work as a team rather
than an individual. The bond created through teamwork has
brought me immense joy being able to swim with others.
I have been swimming for 7 years now. I started when I was 8
years old on the Sunrise Sharks and swam for them for about 5
years. Then my freshman year I swam varsity for Oakmont High
Schhol and helped win Champs for the 2017 season. Last summer
I moved teams to Rollingwood Rockets and helped win another
Championship for the team. Our relay broke 2 Conference
records. Now I'm excited to swim for the Folsom Sea Otters
and help coach others. On my past teams I would help younger
swimmers with their strokes. I would tell them areas where
they could improve in and areas they strived in. I also would
cheer them on during their races, and give them positive feedback
SWIMMING TAUGHT ME - Being on a swim team for the past 7 years of
my life has taught me the importance of teamwork and
commitment. Being able to build a strong relationship with
other members is important for the team to grow and become
stronger. Being on a team I've learned the importance of
commitment. Without it, a team can not reach its fullest
