Tropical Storm swimmers will have the opportunity to swim in a mini meet prior to the start of one of the home Hurricane meets. Date will be announced prior to the start of the season. This is a great learn-to-swim program! Your swimmer will feel safe and comfortable in learning water safety and stroke technique.

Carrie Wilson (Head Coach)
Hi, my name is Carrie Wilson and I am so excited to be leading the Woodlake Hurricanes this year! From the age of 6, I've been involved in competitive swimming at many levels and many capacities. I swam for my local swim club, captained both my high school team and college team and have been competing with masters teams in Jacksonville, Warrenton and locally. I've lifeguarded and taught swim lessons to a wide variety of ages-6 months to 80 years! I've also coached a summer league team in Maryland and have had the opportunity to guest coach for swim clinics focusing on technique. My full-time gig is teaching third grade at Swift Creek Elementary. I'm looking forward to getting to know every swimmer, seeing everyone improve and having fun! See you at the pool!
Coach Adam (Assistant Swim Coach)
I have been swimming with Poseidon Swimming for 8 years and am committed to swim at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the fall. I am a senior graduating from Cosby High School this year and a team captain for their swim program. For the past two years, I have been a camp counselor at Passages Adventure camp. Summer couldn’t come soon enough and I can’t wait to have the most fun summer Woodlake has ever seen!
Coach Ashley (Junior Assistant Swim Coach)
This will be my 9th year swimming for the Woodlake Hurricanes and my first year coaching. I have also been swimming for Quest Swimming for 6 years. My favorite strokes are freestyle and breaststroke. Woodlake has really developed my love and passion for swimming and I hope to help younger swimmers find that love as well! I am in the Math and Science program at Clover Hill High School and I will be a Junior in the fall.
