Maryanne Svoboda

Age Group Coach
 

Maryanne is a born and raised Houstonian. She began swimming for her neighborhood swim team, the Carriage Lane Splashers, at the age of 8 after overcoming a chronic fear of water. Summer league swimming lead to club swimming, and the rest, as they say, is history. She continued her club swimming career through high school (with a little bit of water polo sprinkled in) and swam briefly for the University of Houston before turning her focus toward coaching. 

Maryanne began teaching lessons at the age of 16 in her neighborhood and for friends and family. This allowed her to make the easy transition to coaching when she retired from swimming. She started working with the club team she grew up with, and after a few seasons she landed at FLEET!  Since August of 2008, Maryanne has devoted herself to the swimmers and families of FLEET. Through the years she has coached with all of the 12 & under groups at some point, mainly focusing on the groups that are at Bleyl.

After graduating college, she continued to coach on a more regular, though still part time, basis. She has worked with all age groups and skill levels from beginner through sectional and futures qualifiers. In 2017 she moved to Houston, FLEET and full time coaching and hasn’t looked back. She is an ASCA level 2 coach and believes that good technique drives fast swimming. She preaches and teaches that being mentally prepared to swim is almost as important as being physically prepared.
 
Born and raised in Connecticut, She caught the swimming bug early and has never recovered. She began competitive swimming at the age of 5 to keep up with her older sister and continued through 4 years of college swimming at the University of Bucknell.
