Head Coach Anise Foreman
Coach Anise Foreman is currently the head coach of the Elite Rays Swim Club. Elite Rays is a year round competitive USA Swimming Club. Coach Anise brings a rare and dynamic approach with her to the sport of swimming. She started her swim career at the tender age of five. She quickly became one of the top summer swimmers in the Prince Mont Swim League. Upon leaving the Prince Mont Swim League, she went on to be an athlete in the Northern Virginia Swim League at age 12. Coach Anise made it to All Stars each summer season until aging out. She began her high school swim career starting in her sophomore year of high school. She accomplished the goal of becoming Thomas Stone’s swim team captain. Upon graduation, she was accepted at Bowling Green State University both for her academic as well as her athletic performances, and as a member of the swim team, she thrived.
In addition to her many years of swimming, she taught privately as a swim coach as well as during the summer as head coach. She continues to pour her all into other athletes' lives as she coaches them by teaching them mental and physical toughness, encouraging them to perform to their peak ability, and through rigorous training and goal setting. Kingfish is proud to have Anise as a member of our coaching staff!
Assistant Coach Cristopher Manning, Jr.
Coach Chris has been a member of the Prince George's County community since 1994, matriculating through the school system as a student athlete with primary interests in basketball and swimming. In 1999 he began his relationship with competitive swimming under Potomac Valley Swimming (PVS), competing in USA Swimming and Prince George's County Public School swim meets while attending Surrattsville High School. Upon graduation in 2006, he obtained an athletic swimming scholarship to Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU!!!). During his tenure at FAMU, he earned a BA in Economics with a Minor in Business.
Post-graduation, he returned to the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area where he found a home coaching for Elite Rays Swim Club in the fall of 2012. In the summer of 2013, he began serving as one of the PVS coaches at the Eastern Zone Diversity Summit and Select Camp in Boston, MA. In May 2013 and 2014, he had the opportunity to travel to Cary, North Carolina for the Black Heritage Swim Meet as one of the coaches of the combined Potomac Valley Diversity Swim Team (Team DMV). They took second place in 2013 and third place in 2014 with the combined leadership of Coach Chris and other PVS coaches. During the summer of 2014, he began coaching the summer seasons with the Fort Washington Sharks and helped lead them to become the Prince Mont Swim League Division C Champions.
Over the past five years, Coach Chris has provided one-on-one stroke and technique instruction to new and developing swimmers. His experiences continue to develop his coaching, mentoring, and leadership skills, cultivating him into the passionate and heartfelt coach that he is today. Coach Chris is currently still coaching and developing the next generation of swimmers as head coach of his very own USA Swimming Club, Manta Dive N Aquatics. We are excited to have Chris in the Kingfish family!
