January 3, 2019
There have been some changes since the last swim meets here at the Anthem Community Center. All of them should only make our team even better for 2019
I am now the Aquatics Program Manager for Anthem, so in addition to swim team, I am also now in charge of all swim lessons, lifeguards, and any other program at our pool here. I will still be coaching at least 3-4 days a week and will still be coaching the High School team for at least 1 more year. I will be at most of the meets, but not all of them and I will not be on the pool deck coaching every day.
With this move, Nate Moore has been promoted to Head Swim Coach, Nate will focus primarily on the 13 and over group and he will be handling more of the email communication and website updates as well as meet entries and other swim team admin duties. Again, I will still be a part of all this as well.
We have been working towards this since November as Nate had started to take over the SR group and we were able to hire more coaches.
Coach Olga will be our Lead Age Group Coach for the 10 – 13 group and Coach Alice will continue as our Lead Developmental Coach for the 10 and under swimmers. Coach Sarah will take over most of Coach Claire’s group as Coach Claire is leaving for a chance to travel abroad but we are hopeful she will come back and help us this summer! Her last day will be January 15th so come wish her good luck! We also will have Coach Meredyth taking the Bronze 430 group Mondays and Tuesdays this session.
We are back in the pool today for our Gold-SR levels and back for all levels on Monday. I will be out of town this weekend and back on deck on Tuesday but for the most part you will see me as well as Coach Nate and Coach Olga at most of the meets.
For those of you who have been with us since the days of only having 2-3 regular coaches we REALLY want to thank you for being a part of our team all these years. For those of you that have been here for a year or 2 or less, this won’t seem like too big of a change, but we are really excited to see our coaching staff grow, our team grow and our swimmers continue to grow and succeed.
Please email me or Coach Nate if you have any questions about the team, the levels or coaches.
Thank you for swimming with the Dolphins.
See you at the pool!
