Swimmer of the Month

 Age Group Swimmers of the Month for October!



Starfish Swimmer of the Month:

Sammi Schultz


Sammi fills my heart with joy every time she comes to practice. Always with a smile on her face, sam is ready to swim whatever I ask with no complaints. And every practice ends with a hug and a thank you. She is an athlete that any coach would enjoy having on their team. - Coach Ali

Seahorse Swimmer of the Month:

Dhruve Javangula

Dhruv has shown great improvement since joining seahorse. He really listens to what the coaches have to say and applies suggestion to his swimming right away. He is always on time and comes with a great attitude. - Coach Mark Kate and Coach Tiffany

Stingray Swimmer of the Month:

Adam Zielke

Adam has become like a new swimmer. I've had Adam in the novice group for a couple years now and I've been able to see him progress through the levels. I can defiantly see a change in his attitude and technique.  He is no longer racing to the wall on everything we do, but instead he slows down and thinks about his technique and he doesn't get frustrated when a coach corrects his stroke. He is very determined to move to the next level and with the way he has been swimming, he should be there very soon. - Coach Lindsay

East Novice Swimmer of the Month:

Jude Shepard


We have chosen Jude as our Swimmer of the Month because of how hard he works in practice and how eager he is to get better. On his first day of practice he asked what he needed to do to get into red group and ever since then he has been on top of everything. Jude is a great swimmer to coach and I cannot wait to see his progress throughout the season.  – Coach Tristan and Coach Loreen


Tech Team

Swimmer of the Month:

Onik Srmayan



Onik has become a leader by example for tech team. Always at the front of the lane ready to work and make sure everyone in his lane is ready to work as well. I watch as other swimmers look up to Onik and am so happy that he is there to be a role model to younger kids.  – Coach Ali

 Red Swimmer of the Month:

Sean Lane

The very first couple weeks of practice Sean liked to hide at the end of his lane and then one day he was leading the lane. After that day, he was always at the front of his lane. He comes to practice prepared and is always one of the first in the water and first to volunteer to help. He pays attention during practice and always thanks his coaches at the end (even when we give him a hard kick set). He has improved in such a short time with red group and I can't wait to see what he does in white group. - Coach Lindsay




White Swimmer of the Month:

Sophia Dickinson

Sophia has been doing a great job at practice, from focusing on technique to getting up and going when asked to. She's always craving to know what she needs to work on and how to get there. Sophia is regularly one of the swimmers who knows the swim sets and isn't afraid to ask if she is unsure about something. – Coach Omar   

Blue Swimmer of the Month:

Ben Reyes

Ben has been one of the hardest workers in the group, and has shown that he is ready to take swimming to the next level. Recently we made some goals to excel in the water and he met those no problem with his hard work and drive to be better. Ben is a fun motivated athlete, a true joy to coach, that is why he is the swimmer of the month. - Coach Jordan

East Developmental Swimmer of the Month:

Claire Minton


Claire is a swimmer I know I can count on to give her 100% at every single practice. She is very enthusiastic and has so much energy when she comes to practice. After every practice Claire always comes up to me and asks what she can do to get better and I know after whatever I say she will apply it the very next practice, which is something I very much appreciate.  – Coach Tristan

Bronze Swimmer of the Month:

Brooke Costella



She is energetic, pays attention and helps others in the group. I appreciate having Brooke in practice and count on her to set an example for others in the group.  – Coach Daniel

Silver Swimmer of the Month:

Jeffery Forbes


Jeffrey has a good attitude during practice and almost always has a smile on his face. When given a challenging set, he seems to take a second to contemplate and then internally refocuses with a very positive “can do” outlook. He works very hard and does not back away from challenges. He leads our group by example. – Coach Tanya

Gold Swimmer of the Month:

Lauren Murai

Lauren is a pleasure to coach.  She listens well, and always follows directions to the best of her ability.  She has been very committed to training this season (95% practice attendance) and it's clear that her work ethic is feeding her confidence as she has achieved a best time in every event so far this season!  – Coach Mark


East Advanced Age Group Swimmer of the Month:

AJ Shepard


AJ has shown great improvement over the past few weeks. He consistently works hard and is always trying to improve his technique and knowledge of the sport.– Coach Loreen
