Woodlake Hurricanes Swim & Dive Teams
An exciting & healthy way for your children to spend a portion of the summer is to join the Woodlake Hurricanes Swim/Dive Team. The teams provide an opportunity to develop and improve swimming & diving skills in a safe and positive environment. Sportsmanship, skill development, team spirit, fitness, & fun are our top goals throughout the summer!
The Woodlake Hurricanes are part of the RMAL (Richmond Metropolitian Aquatics League).
Head Swim Coach:
Coach Fuzzy (Assistant Swim Coach)
Coach Kerri (Assistant Swim Coach)
I swam for Woodlake for 13 years and this will be my third year as a Coach. I graduated from James River High School in the Leadership Program and attend the University of Tennessee. I am currently working towards a Communications Studies major and am also a member of the club swim team at UT.
Mason Murphy (Jr. Assistant Swim Coach)
Steven Ebeling (Head Dive Coach)
I was born and raised here in Richmond, Virginia. I started out as a gymnast and was encouraged by my sister's dive coach to try diving when I was 14 years old. I continued diving at Trinity Episcopal School where I broke several high school records before graduating. In 2010, I switched from year round gymnastics to year round diving with a Richmond area dive club.
I began my coaching career during the 2011 summer season at the Kanawha Recreation Association and was later recruited to dive for the University of Delaware. In my sophomore year, I made the tough choice to leave the dive team to focus on my studies in Exercise Science and Spanish. My choice paid off and I am heading into my second year of Physical Therapy school at VCU. With my rehab background in mind, I will be emphasizing core stability, stretching, and proper entries this summer. I was forced to take a break from diving last year for anatomy class, but I am very excited to return to coaching with Woodlake this summer!
Tropical Storm is a fun, safe learning environment for your young swimmer, ages 4-9, and a preparatory program for our Summer Swim Team. The program runs June 5-30th, Monday-Friday. This is a great learn-to-swim program! Your swimmer will feel safe and comfortable in learning water safety and stroke technique.
Tropical Storm is coached by two of our own Coaches, Mason Murphy and Justin Daniels.

Competitive Excellence/ Personal Development
The Poseidon coaching staff endeavors to teach, train and motivate young people to achieve their ultimate potential in competitive swimming in the belief that this experience will prove valuable to them as they grow and develop. Opportunities are provided for each swimmer to compete at levels which are appropriate to his/her competence. The staff also strives to nurture high standards in personal development by instilling such concepts as time management, personal accountability, high self-esteem, constructive self-motivation, goal setting and goal achievement as these ideas relate to their success in training and in competition. It is our belief that the process of achieving is as significant as realizing the achievement itself.
At each level of the Poseidon program, swimmers are taught to strive for excellence. Excellence represents the achievement of that level at which each individual knows that they have done their utmost to become the best that they are capable of becoming.
Mission Statement: To train, develop and motivate swimmers in the pursuit of individual excellence in a team oriented environment.
