Megan been swimming competitively for 11 years. She has been a member of SOLECO Summer Swim since she was seven. She also swims for EMAC and joined the high school team for her freshman year. She has gone to districts all three years and qualified for Seniors and Silvers this year, but unfortunately those didn’t happen. She is excited to help coach the SOLECO Stingrays this summer!
Sydney has been swimming competitively for ten years. She has been a member of the SOLECO swim team, EMAC, and a co-captain for the Southern Lehigh High school team. Sydney is also a certified lifeguard and has taught swim lessons for three years. Starting at the age of 12, Sydney began babysitting which developed her passion for working with children. With her joint passions for swimming and working with children, she couldn’t be more excited to join the coaching staff this summer!! Sydney is looking forward to a fun and great season!!
Matthew has been swimming competitively since he was 7 years old. He started with the SOLECO Stingrays and then swam for EMAC and Southern Lehigh High School team. He was on the High School Varsity team all four years and was a co-captain of the boys team this past Winter season. Matthew is also a certified lifeguard. The most inspirational thing for Matthew when he was younger was having older high school swimmers, especially Jason Moyer, coach him and show him how to enjoy swimming. Swimming has always been a great passion for him. He is proud to be able to coach the SOLECO Stingrays for his second season and help younger swimmers to learn how to enjoy the sport as much as he has.
