Assistant Coach -Elizabeth


Hi I am Coach Elizabeth, I’ve been swimming on the Nelson Farm Gators summer league team since age five, and I am nine time Summer State qualifier. I’m so excited to be coaching this year for SCCA! I swim year round with FAST and swim for Fort Collins High School during the winter. I am Red Cross certified in lifeguarding, first aid, CPR/AED, and have taken a separate class on first aid and CPR for children. I am water wise certified to teach swim lessons, and I have been teaching lessons and lifeguarding for Splash Pool Services for two years. My favorite stroke is freestyle but my favorite stroke to teach is definitely breaststroke! I’m thrilled to join the fun SCCA Swim Team family. Go Sharks!

Assistant Coach-Wesley


Hi I am Coach Wesley, I have been swimming with SCCA for the past 7 years, and I have had Carrie as a coach for a good portion of those seasons. I am a 3 time state qualifier and I'm very excited to pass on my experience onto the next generation of swimmers.

Assistant Coach-Maddie


Hi I am Coach Maddie, I love being outside anywhere near water. I love swimming and have swum on the SCCA swim league since I was 9 years old! I am a two time Summer State qualifier. I’m currently 16 years old and swim for the high school Rocky Mountain High School Team. Swimming, surfing, or just laying by the pool are where you can find me. I look forward to working with the SCCA family as an assistant swim team coach and lifeguard this season!
