Ashley Smith to Lead Dreaming 1

We are happy and very excited to announce that Ashley Smith will be the new lead coach for Dreaming 1.  Ashley is going to be a great addition to the coaching staff and to the team.  Below is a list of some of her coaching accomplishments.

  • Most recently I have finished my 2nd year with the Five Seasons Gators and we ended up going undefeated, winning the All Star meet, and then going on to win Champ meet. Five Seasons had not won a Champ meet since 1998!
  • Previously, I was the head coach of a 150 + swimmer USA Swimming team for about 5 years which included leading several of my 10 & Under swimmers to multiple state titles and many other swimmers to podium finishes at the semi-state, state, zone, and sectional level during that time.
  • I coached my brother, Grant House, from the beginning of his swimming career through his first state titles and state records until he moved to Ohio when he was 12.
  • I ran our middle school swimming team for Sunman-Dearborn Middle School for 5 years, as well as assisted with East Central High School swim team for a few years.
  • I have been a swim lesson instructor for 21 years in both group and private lessons. 
  • Back in the day I was a competitive swimmer from the age of 3, was a state qualifier all 4 years of high school, and I also went on to swim in college at Baldwin Wallace College (now University) in Berea, OH.
