Tim Baker Head Coach

I am ecstatic to be back on deck coaching the TL Orcas this season! I joined the Orcas when I was nine, and I continued swimming as an Orca until I was eighteen. Then I swam at the collegiate level and coached the Orcas for 4 seasons. Believe me, this season is shaping up to be one of the best seasons ever, due to the strong coaching staff and the dedication and enthusiasm of the TL Orca swimmers and parents. So all of you Orcas get pumped up for another exciting and fun-filled year of swimming!

Daniel Castagnola Assistant Coach

Daniel began coaching for the Orcas in 2013, where he also swam as a 15-18 and helped the Orcas to a third place finish. He is honored to have the chance to come back on deck and coach his favorite swimmers. Daniel grew up swimming on the Marinwood Waterdevils, winning countless high point awards and coaches awards for his age group. Daniel played water polo and swam at Marin Catholic High School. He graduated in 2013, with two MCAL water polo championships (2012&2013) under his belt. His senior season, as a captain, he led his team to the NCS championship game, where Marin Catholic became the first ever Marin team to win a NCS water polo championship. Daniel also spent a year at Whittier College, playing water polo and swimming. His water polo team won the SCIAC championship, and made their first ever NCAA appearance. Daniel had two top ten times in school history for the Whittier swim team (100 fly, and 100 back). Daniel plans to transfer to a UC or State school to continue his water polo and swimming careers. Daniel could not be happier to spend another season with the Orcas!
