I am beyond excited to come back and be a Croc again this summer! The Coves has been a part of my Iife for as long as I can remember. I began swimming at age 4, for the Coves and competitive swimming for the Blue Wave Swim team when I was 5. I continued to swim competitively until I graduated high school in 2016. I was an 8 &Under Coach for the Coves for 6 years, and that is where I had my first experiences of coaching. I am also an assistant coach for Club North Swim Team in addition to Coves. Words cannot express how happy I am too come back home this summer and once again be a Croc. The memories I made while I was a Croc were some of my favorite memories growing up and I could not imagine my life without this team. The Coves Swim team has done so much for me in my life as I know it has for other Crocs throughout the decades. Becoming a head coach for the Coves has been a dream of mine and I’m very eager to begin this new journey with the team. Go Crocs!!!
I started swimming when I was 7 years old and fell in love with the sport. I swam on the Coves Swim Team, Blue Wave Swim Club, and Northland United Swim Team for many years. When I turned 13, I wanted to devote more of my time with the swim team so, became an 8 and under coach and that’s when I realized how much I wanted to coach this team. I started coaching at my club swim team, Northland United, when I was a Junior in high school by helping young swimmers learn how to swim as well as develop introduction techniques for swim strokes. After just a year of giving lessons for the team, they promoted me to coach practices and head of lessons. After I graduated, the Coves offered me an assistant coaching job over the summer which was a dream come true. After having one crazy swim season under my belt, I am happy to be returning and can’t wait start again!
Hi there! My name is Noah Witzki, and I am a new assistant coach for the Coves this year. My history in this sport dates back to when I was 6 years old and had started swimming on a recreational team that my mother had coached. It wasn’t until I was 12 when I first began to swim year-round on the Tsunami Swim Team of Kansas City. I had qualified for Region VIII Sectionals by the age of 14, and by the time I had graduated Liberty High School, I was a three-time state champion and All-American, and a Summer Junior National qualifier. I once swam for Missouri State University where I would become a 2nd Team All Mid-American Conference swimmer and assist the team to a conference title. I currently swim for William Jewell College in Liberty and received the MVP for the 2020-2021 season. As for my history in coaching, I have been doing swim lessons since the age of 16. I have enjoyed being able to help many clients of all ages from the basics of knowing how to swim to learning advanced techniques. My greatest desire as a coach is that whoever is in this sport creates enjoyable memories that will last a lifetime, and that they see the truly irreplaceable values found within swimming. I am blessed to have this opportunity to coach for the Coves this year!
Hi! I am Emma Moore. I'm so excited to be joining the Coves as an assistant coach this season. I have been a part of the Coves swim team since 2018 and am excited that now, as a recent 2021 graduate of Park Hill, I can be a part of helping coach our Coves Crocs! I am looking forward to combining my love of swim and experience teaching children this summer. As a former 8 and under coach I have enjoyed the opportunity to watch children learn to love the water and become confident in their strokes and technique. I can't wait for another amazing Croc swim season!!
