Meet the Coaches - We will be highlighting some of our coaching staff each week to start putting names with the Faces...
Bethani Black - Head Coach - Check out our full profile on Coach Black here - she is an accomplished athlete and Coach. Bethani joined us in 2015 and has not only helped us build Dolphin programs for the community at the Del Oro aquatic center, she also has pushed LBD forward in the Suburban Swim League over the last 3 seasons. You can see her influence and technical mastery in our 6&Under and 7/8 age groups - and in the amazing athletes who have developed with LBD over the last few years. We are looking forward to the next step for the Dolphins in 2018!
Kenny Waldthaler - Asst Head Coach - Kenny joined the Dolphins to run our Fall Swim Program and we were excited to have him join us for the summer. Kenny came to the Dolphins with a wealth of experience in coaching and an accomplished athletic career, in Water Polo and Swimming. His swim resume includes an individual Sac Joaquin Section win and record in the 100 Fly. He also won a State Championship in the 200 free for American River College in Junior College and was a 2-time National Champion as a member of the UC Berkley Golden Bear Water Polo team. He is an excellent role model, an encouraging voice on the deck and an amazing technical swim coach. You may have already seen him in the water working with our Dolphin athletes individually to get the most out of their stroke!
Cassie Hinton - Associate (Swimmer) Coach - If you were wondering who was leading our wonderful National Anthem on Saturday at Time Trials, it was Coach Cassie accompanied by 7/8 Alana Black. Cassie is one of our returning Associate Coaches, working with our younger swimmers while also competing as a 15-18 athlete. Cassie started swimming with LBD as a 7 year old. She loves to be a part of the team and a swim coach. "The kids never fail to brighten my day with their laughs and smiles". She is graduating from Del Oro in May, and will be attending William Jessup University in the Fall! She loves singing, swimming, the ocean, sushi, kids, and her family. Cassie is excited for another awesome year for the Loomis Basin Dolphins!
