Hi I’m Jack Wanless. I will be a Senior at Lyons Township
High School and have been swimming for 11 years. I started
swimming at WSSC when I was 5 years old and now this will be my
third year as a coach. Part of the reason I enjoy coaching is to
share my love for this sport. Working with the kids to
swim faster and have fun is the best part. Summer swim at
Waves brings back great memories of the team and the coaches.
I can’t wait to see and meet all of you this summer. It
is going to be a lot fun.
My name is Ethan Baum and I am Junior at LTHS. I swim year round
for Lyons Aquatics, as well as I have been on the LT Boys Swim and
Dive team for the past 3 years. I have lifeguarded at the WSSC
for the past two years, and I gave swimming lessons last year. I am
beyond excited to have the opportunity to coach the Waves swim team
this year, as it has been something I have been wanting to do
for awhile now. Private Lessons are also something I would be
very interested in, as I have subbed for private
lessons before and loved it. I am looking forward to a great
and fun season!
