MC joined the coaching staff in 2010. She brings experience, enthusiasm and youth to our already superb coaching staff. As all NOVA coaches do, MC will be working with a variety of groups throughout the program.      

Coach MC Thomas has strong roots in Virginia Swimming so she is familiar with NOVA and even quite familiar with some of your children through her work with the Virginia Zones teams.  Most recently, MC served as the Head Age Group Coach at SMAC Swimming in Waynesboro, VA.  During her tenure there, MC qualified multiple athletes for the Virginia Swimming Zone Team, and led the way in rebuilding and restructuring the age group program.  She was also instrumental in the development and planning of the senior group which turned out 8 Virginia Swimming championships, 8 short-course YMCA National qualifiers, and multiple National Age Group Top 16 rankings.
      
Prior to her stint at SMAC, MC was the head coach at Central Virginia Aquatics (CVA) in Charlottesville.  While there, her men's team was named Virginia Swimming's Short Course small team champions twice, and the Long Course Short Course small team champions once.  MC coached multiple Junior National and US Open Qualifiers, as well as placing athletes in the National Age Group Top 16.  
 
Before her time in Charlottesville, Coach Thomas was the Head Age Group coach at SWAT (now H20kies) in Blacksburg, VA for 3 years. She also has extensive summer league coaching experience in both the Charlottesville and Blacksburg areas, and in her hometown of Baltimore, MD.
 
MC is a graduate of Virginia Tech, where she played varsity lacrosse, and interned as a strength and conditioning coach.
