We have a great coaching staff at Brookhaven. The coaches pride themselves on teaching technique. We believe that every swimmer should learn the strokes the right way. Below is a little about the coaches:
Cheri Gambow has been the Head Coach of the Brookhaven Sharks for seven years. She is married to Dennis and has 2 boys that swim for the Sharks, Sam and Tom. She swam in high school and was an All American Swimmer. She has coached for several summer league teams in the past and also for a USA swim team. She still swims today. Most recently, she qualified for Nationals as a Masters swimmer. She loves the Sharks and can't wait to get started!
Lauren and Maddie Whisler are returning coaches this year and this will be their third summer with the Sharks. These two outstanding young ladies are twins! They are fun and full of energy and the swimmers love them. Lauren just finished her freshman year at the University of Texas and Maddie is at the University of Georgia. They have both achieved the Girl Scout Gold Award. Lauren and Maddie grew up as Sharks and are great swimmers. We are excited they are coming back.
Madeline Tovar attends Texas A&M University and just finished her freshman year. She is returning for her third season as a Brookhaven coach. Madeline swam on the Ursuline Swim Team and the Dallas Mustangs. She has been swimming since she was 10 and got her start right here at Brookhaven. Madeline has some of the best stroke technique around and is a great coach.
Timothy Bedard is a returning for his third season, and we are thrilled to have him back. Timothy attends Jesuit and is a member of the swim team. He is also an Eagle Scout! He is great at explaining things and has excellent stroke technique.
