Head COACH

Coach Michael
Coach Michael has lived in Texas his whole life. His passion for swimming started ten years ago and he’s been on many competitive teams such as Nitro, Waterloo, Aquatex, as well as the Round Rock high school swim team. He’s been a swim coach since 2020 and has enjoyed every second of it! In addition to coaching for Lago Vista Aquatics, he also coaches the Homeschool Hurricanes swim team at the Twin Lakes YMCA. Coach Michael is able to offer LVA more than excellent swim coaching as he’s also an NASM Certified Personal Trainer and is working on getting my USA Coaching Certification.

JUNIOR COACH

Ally
My name is Ally and will graduate in the class of 2023.  I have been swimming year round since I was 7. I lived in the Houston area and competed in the GULF LSC for 8.5 years. I moved to Lago in 2021 and have been swimming for Nitro since. I am currently preparing for college level swimming. When I am not at the pool, I love to spend my time outside and on the lake. I look forward to seeing what this summer brings!

Swim Mentor

Corinn
The first time I realized I loved the water was when I was 6 months old, learning water safety at Emler Swim School. I started with Lago Vista Aquatics before I could swim across the pool because the coach at the time was also the swim instructor. It took a few years before I found my competitive bug but have loved every moment in the water and look forward to teaching new kids all four strokes.

Swim Mentor

Lilly
Lillian is 14 and began swimming with the Tidal Waves in 2018. When the mentor program was introduced in 2021, she jumped at the chance to help new teammates learn their strokes. In her spare time, she loves to participate in long-distance running and theatre.

Swim Mentor

Morgan
My first foray into swimming was when I was 6 months old, learning basic water safety and survival at Emler Swim School. I began swimming with Lago Vista Aquatics in 2015. After four years of swimming competitively, I began assisting our Head Coach with the instruction of all 4 swim strokes to our younger teammates. When I’m not swimming, I’m tutoring kids in math and language arts, helping my mother with her business and working toward my 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo at Lago Vista ATA.

Swim Mentor

Natalie
Hello, my name is Natalie and I have been a competitive swimmer since 2012 (10 years). Last summer I swam on the Typhoons swim team in Cedar Park and also the local swim team, Lago Vista Aquatics. I plan to continue swimming on both teams this summer. I look forward to teaching the kids and helping them to become better swimmers!

Swim Mentor

Scarlett
I’m Scarlett, and I’m 15. I’ve been swimming most of my life, but have recently started swimming competitively when I moved from California to Lago Vista in late 2020. When I’m not in the water, I’ll be drawing, reading, or voice acting. I also enjoy riding my bike, and though I don’t avidly practice martial arts anymore, I am a first degree black belt in hapkido. I’m excited to spread my love for swimming with others this summer!
