Hello, it is nice to meet you! My name is Annie Brown, I have been involved in Colorado swimming in one way or another for 25 years, both as a swimmer and as a coach. I fondly remember my years as a summer club swimmer where I made friends and memories that will last a life time. When I am not at the pool or racing my bicycle, I teach 6th grade. In my career as a teacher and a coach I have had the opportunity, time and time again, to watch kids reach goals and accomplish things they never thought possible. I am excited to work with you and help you meet your goals. I am looking forward to a great season- Go Marlins!

Hello my name is Sarah Simon. I have been a part if the Marlins Swim Team for 14 years. I have been a  Marlins coach for 6 years. I swam for Lakewood High School for all four years of my high school career. My favorite events were the 400 free and the 100 breaststroke. I currently am attending the University of Iowa but love being in Colorado. I look forward to watching each swimmer improve!
