Emily Olsen Junior Coach
Christian Szilagyi Junior Coach

Hi everyone! My name is Christian Szilagyi, and I can't wait to coach for Lightning this summer. My family has been a part of Lightning since its start in 2004, and I joined when I was 7 years old. I also swim for Nations Capital Swim Club (NCAP) in their Gold 1 group and have been a 3x states swimmer at Riverside High School. I am super excited to have the opportunity to pass on what I've learned, and hope to have the same positive influence on the kids that previous Lightning coaches have had on me.
