Spokane Wave, Update on coaching search


Update on Assistant Coaching Search


Hello Wave,

I am pleased to inform you that the search for our assistant primary group coaches is complete. We are still looking for substitute coaches and lesson instructors to help fill positions when coaches are out of town for meets or have other commitments to attend to, but confident we will fill those positions shortly. 

Thank you for your patience, I am very happy with our staff selection and eager to move forward with the team and start focusing on the rest of the season. We have several new coaches on deck with both competition and teaching experience; all have hit the ground running with their respective training groups. We will be providing multiple coaches on deck as often as possible with the younger groups to help reinforce skills and add an extra set of eyes to the water.

Below are the coaching assignments and corresponding training sites.

Coach Garth Babcock
- Gold/Senior training groups

Coach Isabelle Natchshiem- Silver/Gold training groups

Coach Kaylie Geschke- Ripples/Bronze training groups



Head Coach Sean Muncie- Senior/National training groups

Coach Ashton Pollick- Gold/assistant Bronze & Silver training groups

Coach Lauren Vagt- Silver training group

Coach Megan Washburn- Ripples/Bronze training groups

Coach Janali Gustafson- Lesson Program Director/assistant Br, Si, Go training groups


If you have any questions please feel free to contact your swimmer’s immediate coach.

I am excited to be on deck with a new and stable staff. There is a lot of experience and knowledge on deck for our swimmers to learn the sport from and I encourage the parents also to take advantage of that experience and knowledge and ask the coaches questions.
