Coach Michael has lived in Texas his whole life. His passion for swimming started over 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! Taking 7 of the 14 members of the LVA Tidalwaves that qualified for State to Corpus Christi in 2022 was a paticular highlight of the season.
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 can provide accurate, healthy dry-land workouts to build stronger swimmers. During the off-season Coach Michael is a full-time college student, and is working on getting his USA Coaching Certification.
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!
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.
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.
Hello, my name is Natalie and I have been a competitive swimmer since 2012. 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!
