Wendy Neely, Head Coach

My passion is swimming - I really love working with adults. I believe every adult should know how to swim with ease, comfort, and enjoyment.

As the years go by I continue to meet adults that are struggling with their swimming, my goal is to eliminate swimmers current stumbling blocks and move them forward to enjoy all that swimming has to offer; whether it is swimming for pleasure, rehabilitation or competition.
