The Lake of the Woods Barracuda Swim Team is excited to introduce our new head coach, Holly Volheim. Holly comes to us with an extensive resume of experience with Swim Team coaching. Holly grew up in Woodbridge, VA and swam for the Dale City Frogs Swim Team and for C.D. Hylton High School. Holly started coaching in 2013 and held the position of Assistant Head Coach from 2018 until 2021. She was Head Coach for the winter and spring condition program for the Frogs and Head Coach for the Prince William County Special Olympics.
Holly is currently a Behavioral Interventionist supporting Spotsylvania County School teachers and students in Special Education. She is attending Liberty University in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She is married to a U.S. Marine stationed at Quantico and they make their home in Culpeper along with their 80-lb Akita. Her mother and sister live here in the Lake.
From Holly: “I cannot imagine not being involved with swimming at least part time. The sport of swimming has been a lifelong passion and I am blessed to be able to pass that passion along to today’s swimmers. The start of my coaching career in 2013 shined a light on how I can take the experiences of swimming that I had and watch the next generations as they form bonds with teammates, achieve goals, and enjoy the sport of swimming whether they choose to only swim summers or commit to year-round training. The team I spent ages 4-18 swimming for, evolved into more of an extended family over the years and I hope to produce that same sense of family/community environment for Lake of the Woods Barracudas.”
Looking forward to an exciting 2022 season! Go Barracudas!
