Swim and Dive Team Coach Profiles.

Swim Team Coaches

Head Coach: Jennifer Marks
Hi! I have a love for swimming, a love for young people, and for this reason I will be the head coach for Miami Hills again! I swam competitively in high school and college, taught swim lessons and coached previously. I love kayaking, snorkeling and everything related to water. My husband and I have been married for over 20 years and have 3 kids on the team. Our family is thankful for such a great facility and wonderful people. I am happy to use my years of experience to provide a hard-working, encouraging and fun environment where athletes can learn to swim stronger and faster. I am excited to work with the swimmers in a coaching capacity this summer.

Assistant Coach:  Sydney Hanna
Hello, my name is Sydney Hanna. A graduate of Ursuline Academy, I have been studying Business Administration and Physical Therapy at Mercer University. I was a competitive swimmer from the time I was 6 to 17 years old. I have swum for Miami Hills, M.A.S.T., Mercy Health Plex Sea Wolves and Ursuline Academy Lions. I was forced to quit competitive swimming at the end of my Junior HS career due to continuous injury. I’m looking forward to bringing my love of the sport to the Dolphins this summer.

I dove for Milford High School my freshman year, and I have been involved in learning more about dive ever since.
