Ryan_charest
Ryan Charest Assistant Coach

Greetings! My name is Ryan Charest and I am 17 years old. I have been swimming for Annandale Swim and Tennis for 6 years and I have also been swimming for Annandale High School since my freshman year. I have made it to Regionals 2 times in high school and all stars once for summer swim. I became varsity captain of my swim team in my junior year and will most likely maintain that title. I have coached the Little Tides for 2 years and will be an Assistant coach this year. I always have enjoyed swimming with my friends both at Annandale Swim and Tennis and Annandale High School and they are basically family to me. I am looking forward to this season and to meeting the wonderful parents again or new parents joining the pool. I also hope to break some PRs and to help out the team!

Kia Morawetz Assistant Coach

Hi! My name is Kia Morawetz and I have been swimming for 9 years. I participate on the Red Tide swim team during the summer and I am also on the Annandale High School team. I have been a junior coach the past two years, but this is my first year as an assistant coach. Swimming has been a great hobby for me throughout my childhood and I hope to share that with other swimmers this summer as well. Let's have a great season!
