Ericka Richards Head Coach

Coach Ericka is a graduate of the University of the Pacific, with a Sports Medicine degree. She herself was an age group swimmer, having competed since she was 9 years old. She swam at levels from beginner to Senior Nationals which led to a full ride scholarship to the University of the Pacific, where she also played waterpolo. Ericka's philosophy is simple, you get out what you put in. She believes cross-training in multiple sports helps your athleticism and therefore makes you a better swimmer. While it may not be true of ever swimmer, she will encourage you to try until you find your passion for swimming. Ericka has strong ties to swimming as she is still a masters swimmer, 'I just love to compete!" the tougher the competition the more she loves it. If you haven't found your calling come try club swimming!
