April 2023 Newsletter
Registration for the team has begun on our website. Register by May 12 to get your name printed on the team t-shirt! Swim team practices will start on May 22 at Lakeview Pool. We can’t wait to get back in the water! In the meantime, we’ve been busy planning a lot of fun events for our swimmers including favorites like the Mock Meet, Team Pool Party and an end of season event, as well as new Pre-Season events like an All Parent information session, and a new swimmer evaluation and introductory practice. Information about these events and schedules can be found on the website.
We are still looking for someone to take over the Fundraising position. There would be an opportunity to job shadow the current committee member this year to learn the role. Please send us an email if you would like to learn more!
We are excited for a new season with returning coaches, and a few new faces!
MEET THE HEAD COACHES
Andrew Kiss, Lead Head Coach
My name is Andrew Kiss and I am beyond excited to return for my 6th year on the Kings Charter Tidal Wave’s coaching staff. I am a student at the College of William and Mary studying Business Analytics. I have been around the sport of swimming for the majority of my life and have found the water to be a place of growth and excellence. The Tidal Waves embody this energy and passion, and I cannot wait to help lead this team towards success.
Wendy Benson, Head Coach of Administration
My name is Wendy Benson. I am currently attending VCU and I am majoring in Fashion Merchandising! I have been involved with the KC Tidal Waves since I was 8 years old and I have been coaching for about 5 years. I always enjoy getting to know all of our swimmers and overall having a fun summer season!
