Assistant Coach- Mikki Tran

Assistant Coach-Andrew Crawford

Assistant Coach – Cole Calabrese

Coach Cole started his swim career as a CWST stingray 16 years ago at the age of 4. During that time he was a regular at Allstars, has served as a junior coach, has been the high point scorer 7 years, and holds several team records. He swam one year each with FCST when he was 10 and with Escalate Aquatic Team as an 18-year-old. He lettered all 4 years of high school at Kempner, was captain as a senior, won several District Championships his junior and senior years, set a new FBISD district record in the 100 backstroke, and made it all the way to State this year as a senior where he placed 17th. Even with some success though, Cole has remained committed to improving and developing his strokes. He has an incredible work ethic, enormous self discipline, a passion for swimming, and an insatiable thirst for knowledge of technique, training, and nutrition. When he’s not in the pool or gym or kitchen, he’s watching hours and hours of videos and vlogs to find any minute way to improve. Coach Cole has a bigger goal of enhancing stroke development for this team, and is very excited to be back again this season

At the Meets

Bring a positive attitude to endure the heat and the organized chaos, a chair, towels, sunscreen, plenty of water, snacks (optional â€" there is usually a concession stand), and a sun hat or umbrella.

  1. Check in with the child's Team Parent. (VERY IMPORTANT)
  2. Sit near the Team Parent if possible (especially important for the 8 and under swimmers). Have your child get with the Team Parent for line ups at least 2 events prior to their swim
  3. Look for the Meet Director or Volunteer Coordinator and ask if you can help. (There are lots of things to do!)
  4. After the meet, clean up your area, check for personal items, and help put up the equipment at home meets

Criteria for Making the Team

  • To make the team, swimmers must be able to swim one length of the pool without touching the sides, ropes, or bottom and without stopping (see Hope Team policy below)
  • 7&ups may be required to swim two lengths of the pool and all strokes (Freestyle, Breast, Back, and Butterfly)
