She has 3 young boys but they are too young for swim team ... yet! We are very excited to have her as our Head Coach! For more about Coach Emilie, check out our "Coaches" page.
Alisa's daughter, Ren, is one of our Assistant Coaches this year. Her oldest daughter, Lindsay, swam with the Dolphins and was also a much beloved Assistant Coach. She aged out in 2019 and is now in college. Alisa can be found taking photos at most of the meets while her husband, Todd, is either acting as a Stroke & Turn Judge or the Starter.
Alisa creates a beautiful slideshow that we play at the Year-End Banquet. She is always looking for photographers to help her cover the various meets and events. If you are interested in helping her out, please contact her.
2022 will be her last year with team so we are looking for someone to take over in 2023!
