EV STEELE - Ev has coached all levels and abilities in Synchro and  competitive swimming with one former AG swimmer winning two Olympic Bronze medals in 400 IM as an adult.  Ev specialized in training sprinters and flyers at CSUB.  She is great with age groupers focusing on sculling, stroke balance, starts, turns, with personal contact to help swimmer self-esteem while conducting workshops in clock reading, time management, and handling stress at meets. Kids  and parents love her sensitivity and caring!
