Hello! My name is Ella Reintsma & I am so excited to be coming on as the Head Coach for the 2022-2023 synchro season.
I was a competitive artistic swimmer for 10 years starting here in Colorado, consistently qualifying for events such as USA National Team trials, Junior Olympics, and National Championships. This season will be my first official year in the Head Coaching position, but with prior coaching and teaching experience & with the guidance of our amazing consultant Coach Becky, I feel prepared to lead us into a great season.
Over the years having seen many different coaches & coaching styles, I've been blessed to learn and develop my own values and philosophies. To me, possibly the most important value is to care for each swimmer as a whole individual, not just an athlete (this includes supporting swimmers both physically and mentally, both in & out of the pool). As a coach, my responsibilities are not only teaching athletes technical skills, but also helping build + encourage life long skills such as follow through on commitments, inclusion, flexibility, confidence, creative expression, and teamwork.
While at practice I work primarily with our 13+ athletes as the Lead Coach of the Age Group team, I love getting to know all of our swimmers and sometimes get the opportunity to work with our littles at practice, too. :)
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns- I am here to create the best possible synchro experience for all swimmers, regardless of what level they wish to be or where they're at in life. I look forward to meeting & working with you all- cheers!
Hey! I'm Emma Polischak and I am excited to be a new coach for 5280 this year. I did artistic swimming competitively for 6 years fell in love with the sport. I made many great friends in my swimming career and I have learned to express myself and my creativity through artistic swimming. As a coach I hope to help the swimmers learn to express themselves as well as how to work as a team.
