My Swim Stars
It is fun for me to stay connected to competitive swimming through my coaching but even more fun for me to see my daughters take such an interest in it too! Once my oldest daughter started swimming, my younger daughters naturally became interested too since we were around pools so often. Now our schedules seem to revolve around swim meets/practices, but it's so much fun watching them compete and grow as swimmers!!
Athena is my oldest, and she began competitive swimming at the age of 7 with the ACAC summer swim team in the Jefferson Swim League. She began year-round club swimming at the age of 9 with the Charlottesville YMCA Aquatics Club (CYAC). Athena also swims in the winter with her high school team, the Monticello High School Mustangs. Some of her accomplishments: JSL record holder, Virginia Swimming 2017-18 Short Course All Star Team, Y-Nationals qualifier, Virginia High School 3A All-State Team (3rd place in 50 free, 100 free 200 free relay).
Sofie is my middle daughter, and she was eager to start swimming competitively at an early age after seeing Athena win pretty ribbons at summer swim meets. Sofie practiced with ACAC's summer swim team when she was 4 and became eligible to swim in meets at age 5. She began indoor swimming with CYAC at age 6, although she practiced predominately with me during the week. She now swims about half the time with me in group sessions and half the time with her team. Some of her accomplishments: JSL record holder, Virginia Swimming 2017-18 Short Course All Star Team.
Vivian is my youngest daughter, and she is quickly becoming a talented little swimmer. She was comfortable in the water at age 2. I give her private and group lessons now at the age of 5, and she is excited to begin competitive swimming. Vivian has a lot of energy and will surely be a contender to break her sisters' records! Her first official swim season will be this summer with ACAC.
