Coach Kelly Serrao—Blue Group
I am very excited to be coaching the Blue Group at Evergreen Swim Club. In Blue Group we will be working on further developing technique and levels of fitness. Swimming has been a huge part of my life since I was very young. I started swimming competitively for my local YMCA team when I was 12 years old. When I was in high school I was a Senior Sectional qualifier for the Mt. Hood Swim Team down in Oregon, and a state finalist in the 200 free and 100 back at the Washington 4A State Meet. I continued to swim in college at Washington State University where I served as team captain my junior year.After graduating from WSU with a B.A. in History I taught and coached boys and girls swimming at River Ridge High School for 3 years. Now I teach at Komachin Middle School and am very excited to be part of the Evergreen Swim Club coach team!!
Please contact me if you have any questions about Blue Group!!
Coach Tiffany Wright--Red Group
I began swimming at the age of nine and swam competitively until I began college. I was a sectional level swimmer with four trips to girls high school state championships . I began swimming with Peninsula Swim Club which later became Puget Sound Swim Club. My three children are ESC swimmers, Andrew, Alex, and Madison.
I have a B.A. in English with an emphasis in Writing and a Minor in Politics and Government from the University of Puget Sound. After graduation, I worked in sales before settling into Human Resources. I decided to stay home with my children after Alex was born. As many of you know, our family has been with ESC for the past seven years. During this period, I have been the team equipment manager, Swim-A-Thon coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator, Stroke and Turn official, Starter, and most recently Meet Referee. Recently, I also completed my Lifeguard training which includes CPR, First Aid, and AED.
Swimming has been such an integral part of my life for many years in regards to myself, my siblings, and my own children. My hope is to provide your swimmer with some of the same opportunities that I was able to experience as a swimmer. Obviously, we want to work hard and have some fun at the same time! Red group swimmers will be coming home with goal/information packets next week. We only have a few short weeks before the end of the season and still have so much to accomplish!
If you ever have any questions regarding your swimmer's progress, goals, or just need some more information please let me know. I can be reached after workout each night or by email.
