ASSISTANT DIRECTORS:

“I’m studying to become a developmental economist to research novel strategies that impact public policies surrounding women’s empowerment. I’m a master bubble ring blower and I’m excited to be at the Technique Academy this summer because I believe that not only can swimming be made fun but that it should be and when it is, it makes for happy swimmers and fast times.”

Emily Hall—Director of the 11 & Over Camp

Emily swam competitively at Georgetown University and recently graduated from Harvard School of Education.

“I have been coaching swimming for over 10 years and I can’t imagine my life without it! I love seeing young swimmers fall in love with the sport and watching when a skill really “clicks.” Technique is the second most important part of swimming–the first is enjoying the sport!  A un fact about me:  I hold the (unofficial) pool record at my summer swim club for the 25 “backwards” freestyle (freestyle but feet first to work on balance).   I am very excited to work at the Technique Swim Academy this summer!
