Coach ClaireThis is Coach Claire’s second year as a Mutant coach. Claire was a Mutant herself from the age of 6 to 16, and spent all summer at the park growing up.

Claire loves the beach at Torch Lake, a good book, doodling, her dog Sally, and spending the summer with the team at the park in the sunshine.
This is Daniel’s 11th year swimming for the Mutants. He has long aspired to be a coach, mainly from witnessing his awesome coaches at the Park.

Daniel is looking forward to coaching swimmers of all ages and is ready for the Park to “bring home” the hardware at home.
