Hey Tarpons! My name is Rachel Pringle and I am thrilled to be back with the Tarpons this year! I have spent the past 15 summers with the team and I am so excited to be back with the kids for my 6th year as a coach! I am currently a junior studying Early Childhood Education at the University of Texas at Austin. I have had the pleasure of instructing a swim course, working as an American Red Cross lifeguard, and providing private lessons all through the University. I have a passion for working with children and have had additional experience with babysitting, coaching volleyball, and tutoring. I cannot wait to get back in the water and see all of the big Tarpon smiles! See you in the pool:)
Hi my name is Angelina Lam. I am 18 years old. I have been on the Tarpons for seven years now . I swam for Austin high school swim team for four years, varsity. When I’m not in the pool, I work at swim labs teaching more kids to swim. Hoping to share the experience with others. I can’t wait to teach this summer and teach all the kids to love swimming just as much as I do. Helping them improve everyday.
Hey! My name is Emarie Schweikhardt, and this will be my 14th summer on the Tarpons. I swam for USA swim clubs for 13 years, and have been on the Austin High School Varsity Swim Team for four years and a team captain my senior year. I was also on the Austin Water Polo team and earned district honors. The past two years, I placed in the top eight in the district swim meet, and swam at the regionals meet. The past few summers, I have taught swim lessons for SWAT and lifeguarded. I plan to study nursing in college next year. I have volunteer coached for the past 3 summers and I am super excited to swim and coach again this year!
Hello, my name is Caleb Koscinski, and I am a senior at Austin High School. I have swam for the Tarpons for over ten years, and I have been a volunteer coach for the team as well. Besides the Tarpons, I have also swam for First Colony Swim Team. Besides swimming, I am a percussionist in the Austin Band, where I’ve been an upperclassman member of the drumline while attending the State Marching Contest the past couple of years. While I always seek to better myself, I enjoy helping others succeed by sharing my knowledge and experiences, whether it be for underclassmen in my section, classmates, or as a coach to younger swimmers. As a coach, I am ecstatic to be able to share my experience and joy for swimming to all of the kids on the Tarpons.
