A message from head coach Mary Hamilton:

 

I am excited to be coaching Spring Run Swim Team.  We are going to have a great summer.  I love to swim and I love to teach people how to swim.  Swim team is such a great experience for everyone.  It is the one sport that everyone can continue doing throughout their life.  Summer swim team is especially fun because of the bronze, silver and gold levels.  All swimmers can contribute to the team.


I started swimming competitively when I was 11 years old on a summer swim team.   My family had recently moved and my sister and I started swimming to meet people.  It was a great experience.  At age 12 I joined a year round program, swam through high school and 4 years at DePauw University.  I still swim with a masters group.  I have been teaching swimming lessons at the RAC for 7 years.


My children Lindsei and Jason have swam on the team and helped me coach.  They have also both helped with the learn to swim program.  I am hoping my husband will swim also.


We are going to have a bunch of fun activities along with the swim practices.
