Meet the Coaches

What's expected of the Coaches?

Coaches and staff are here to give the best training possible for your swimmer. Each staff member at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center has been hand-picked. We look for quality and dedication in our staff to provide the best experience for the families we work with. All staff must go through intense trainings that keep them current in American Red Cross standards and USA certifications. We hope that our staff helps your swimmer reach their goals and gives your family a positive experience here at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, JACOBS FAMILY CAMPUS.

Coach Michels's Bio

Parent Participation

What's expected of the Parents?

Parents are here to support and encourage their swimmer. All questions and concerns should be addressed with the coach after practice or via email. We ask parents to not interfere while the coach is teaching; please feel free to sit in the bleachers or deck furniture during practice. Talking to the coaches during practice does not allow for the coach to do their job or the swimmers to focus. The Barracudas highly encourage parent participation. Parent volunteers help run fun clinics, inter-squad and monthly meets. If you are interested in volunteering for an event please contact Coach Alana Michels via email alanam@lfjcc.org
