Hello Marlins (and future Marlins)!!
Here we go again!!! I am so looking forward to this upcoming season and the opportunity to experience a fullseason with all of our amazing Marlin swimmers, parents and family and friends who support us through out the summer season!!This will be my 5th season on the deck of the Belterra pool and we are fortunate to have both Brady and Josh returning to our incredible team. We are welcoming Avery Cagle for her first season as an assistant coach! A but about my family...
My twins, Brooklynn & Abbigale 18 will be finishing their first year in college, Macey is finishing her junior year at DSHS, Ryleigh 13, and Drew who is 11. My family has loved being a part of the Marlins both in the pool as swimmers and on the deck as coach’s work crew.
I have been coaching for over 20 years and have worked with littles just learning how to swim all the way to elite triathletes. I love the culture of the rec team atmosphere and feel that this team plays a crucial part in the community. My hope is to continue to grow a program that allows brand new swimmers to fall in love with the sport and for seasoned swimmers to flourish in the team atmosphere. We are very fortunate to be able to provide and be a part of this swim team and I look forward to creating many memories with the Belterra families around the pool!! Now… let’s jump in and have some fun!!!
Hi, my name is Brady England and I am 19 years old. I am just finishing my first year in college. I graduated in 2020 from DSHS. I have been swimming at the Belterra pool, since I was 6, starting out with swim lessons, and then participating with the Belterra Marlins for the last 10 years! When I was 9 and 10 years old, I qualified for the TAAF Nationals with the Marlins and went to San Diego to swim against the best in the country for breaststroke. That is one of many memories, I will forever treasure. My summers have always been filled with great Marlins memories, from practices to swim meets they are what made and make summers so fun. During the school year and throughout summer, I also love to play soccer. I train and do open play throughout summer, and I was on the varsity team for Dripping Springs High School and played club soccer for Lonestar FC. I also enjoy playing video games and hanging out with friends. I am very excited for this season to start and can’t wait to see the kids I have coached in the past, and meet the new members to the Belterra Marlins team. My goal is to help each swimmer have an awesome experience this summer, and to help instill the love of swimming for sport and life skill.
My mom forced me to join the Marlins the first summer we lived in Belterra. Thankfully, for her, and for me, I fell in love with swimming and the camaraderie the Marlins offer. Since then, I have been a proud Marlin for ten years, was a club swimmer for six years at Austin Swim Club, and was on my high school’s swim team for two years. After being a member of three different swim teams, I can confidently say that the Belterra Marlins are the most welcoming and enthusiastic swimming community. I am super excited for this season and look forward to meeting y’all! GO MARLINS!!
