Coaches' Bios:


Elin Smith

I am very excited to continue with the Dolphins coaching staff into my second year for 2023-24. I grew up competing as a member of the YMCA Dolphins Swim Team and WAHS Swim Team, as well as in age groups internationally living in Southeast Asia. While competing, I trained with several fantastic coaches and will draw on all those experiences to develop my coaching style. I prioritize a strong foundation of stroke technique to increase speed, all while creating a fun environment for swimmers to grow. I'm excited to meet everyone and look forward to a great season!
