EL DORADO HILLS — The El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils swim team kicks off its season tomorrow when the Taz host the Folsom Sea Otters.

Brand-new endeavors for the 49-year-old Taz program includes welcoming in new head coach Marc Brown. Not new to the Taz organization, Brown previously served as assistant coach for three consecutive years alongside his brother and former head coach, Jason Brown.

“I extend a very warm welcome to our new head coach,” Taz president Brett Jones said. “Marc was a huge part of a coaching staff that last year yielded an undefeated regular season while also being successful in winning the coveted first place Champs trophy.”

Marc brings high energy, passion for the sport and drive

“Every swimmer has the potential to be better in some aspect of the sport. I always stress good sportsmanship, fun and hard work, so this season will be approached just like any other,” Marc said. “Of course, there is a lot more pressure now that we are the defending champs, but it’s important to keep our eye on the prize and work as hard, or harder than last season.

“We lost important pieces to our team with some older swimmers aging out, but I feel like we have athletes that can rise to the occasion and pick up where the others left off. There is no lack of talent on this team and that’s what excites me, we just need to get to work from day one, work toward our goals and we will reach them. I am excited to show what I can do as head coach; I can’t wait to get started.”

The Taz held their “Parent Night” and “Back-to-Taz” as well as their own Mock Meet designed to give swimmers the swim meet experience and establish stroke times.
