Starting April 5 at the Pagosa Lakes Recreation Center, the new head coach for the Pagosa Lakes Porpoises will start practice after school from 4–5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
An informational meeting will take place Monday, March 22, at the junior high school library at 6 p.m. All ability levels, ages 8-18, are welcome.
The new coach, Tiffany Candelaria, has been involved in competitive swimming both as an athlete and a coach for many years. She began her swimming career as a Pagosa Lakes Porpoise before attending Colorado State University on an athletic scholarship. After graduating from CSU with a degree in Sports Medicine, Tiffany coached several teams on the Front Range including Vortex Swim Team, Loveland Swim Club and Poudre High School Swim Team. She is excited to begin coaching again, and to share her knowledge and experience with her swimmers. She hopes to instill a lifelong love for swimming and create a fun and exciting environment for each athlete.
