ASSISTANT COACHES

Coach Dawn

Dawn began swimming at the age of 10 for the Willowick Wildkats. Dawn has also swum for the West End Wildcats, Euclid Dragon Flies, and was one of the original four independent swimmers to represent North High School. Dawn has coached since she was 17. Dawn likes to work with the younger swimmers teaching them how to swim strokes properly because it does not matter how fast a swimmer is if they cannot swim the stroke properly.

Cindy was born and raised in Willoughby and swam for the Wildcats. Cindy also swam for the Willoughby Stingers and the Lake Erie Dolphins. Cindy is the Head Coach for the Willoughby Stingers summer team. Cindy knows we have a great group of swimmers and parents and hopes to see our swim team family grow. Cindy is looking forward to a great season!
