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 swimmers of the LVA Tidalwaves that qualified for State to Corpus Christi was a particular highlight of the 2022 season.
In addition to coaching for Lago Vista Aquatics, he also coaches the Homeschool Hurricanes swim team year round 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.
Coach Ally has swam competitively for 11 years. Many of those years were in a suburb of Houston prior to moving to Lago Vista in 2021. Currently, she swims with the National Group at Nitro in Cedar Park. In August, she will make her way to Norfolk, VA to attend and swim for Old Dominion University.
Last summer, the highlight of her summer was getting to see everyone improve greatly on their technique and be introduced to the sport she loves. She is excited to be back again and cannot wait to see what the summer holds.
Bio coming soon!
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. My strongest event is the Individual Medley and I look forward to teaching new swimmers on the team all four strokes.
I am so excited to teach again this year! I have been a part of the Lago Vista Aquatics Tidal Waves for over 7 years and have been mentoring new swimmers since 2021. Besides swimming, I also have a love for theatre and have been cast in many productions put on by Lake Travis Music Theatre and Rising Stars. Looking forward to an amazing year and getting to meet awesome people!
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.
I have been a competitive swimmer since 2012. In the summer of 2021, I swam on the Typhoons swim team in Cedar Park and also the local swim team, Lago Vista Aquatics. I enjoy the camaraderie of Lago Vista Aquatics and have made LVA my main team. I look forward to teaching the kids and helping them to become better swimmers!
