Meet the Coaches
Comes from a long line of Marlin swimmers and started her career well before the usual six-year-old range that many start at, following her older siblings and swimming through to her senior year at 18. Natalie has worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor at Catalina Terrace for many years, and joined our coaching staff last year to learn team management and coaching operations. Natalie has coached year-round swimming as Southwest Aquatic Sports. This year she now continues her Marlins’ growth as head coach with her typical dedication and hard work, imparting her life-long knowledge and passion to our current crop of Marlins while refining on her coaching skills and swim team management. Thank you Natalie!

A long line of family Marlin's swimmers, starting before he turned six, graduating to lifeguard and pool maintenance and now coaching—there is barely a topic or part of the pool Zane has not touched in his career at CT! Zane’s excited to be coaching! He is returning to youth swimming all the lessons he learned while becoming one of our all-time major powerhouse swimmers before he graduated in 2020! You should see his dive!
Thank you Zane!
