Head Coach, Navy Team Coach
Kendra began swimming at 9 years old, when her best friend brought her to a Splash practice to "just try it." She immediately fell in love with the sport.
She competed for 10 years. During that time she attended 8 National Age Group Championships and 1 U.S. National Championship.
Kendra graduated in 2011 and began her coaching career with Splash shortly after.
Kendra's favorite part about coaching is watching the swimmers grow -- gaining strength and confidence -- throughout the season.
Purple Team Coach
Andrea started synchro at age 7 with the South Suburban Tarpons in southeast Colorado. At age 10, she moved to the Heather Ridge Aurorians where she competed until she was 17 years old (the Tarpons and the Aurorians eventually merged to form Rocky Mountain Splash). During her competitive years, Andrea competed nationally at National Age Group (NAG) and Junior Olympics, taking her 14-15 duet all the way to Finals at NAG and placing in the top 10. She was also a member of the Olympic “C” Team -- a traveling team which promoted synchronized swimming in the Olympic Games.
She still competes with the Rocky Mountain Splash Masters who have taken 1st place in their category multiple years in a row!
At age 14, she coached the summer league team at Crestmoor Community Association in Denver and continued to coach there for 5 years. Her coaching career continued in Des Moines, Iowa with the Des Moines Aquamaids during her college breaks. When she graduated from college and moved to Arizona, she became Head Coach at Scottsdale Synchro where she stayed for 3 years before moving back to Colorado and coaching at Skyline Acres during her summer breaks from teaching.
Andrea’s coaching philosophy is to instill a love of the sport first and success will follow. She tries to create a fun atmosphere at every practice and stays tuned in to the energy she gets back from the girls to make sure she’s on the right track.
12&Under Assistant Coach
Janee began synchronized swimming at age 8 with the Des Moines Aquamaids. She swam with the Aquamaids for 10 years, competing at the local, regional, and national levels.
When she moved to Denver in 2001, she met a Splash mom that introduced her to the team and she started coaching the 12 & unders. After a few years, she left coaching to focus on raising her family and now that they are teenagers, she is back with Splash to work with the Sparkle and Silver teams.
Janee works in the technology field and enjoys spending her free time with her husband, kids and their 3 dogs.
Synchronized swimming had such a positive impact on her life since childhood and she is excited to help the little Splash swimmers develop their swimming skills and passion for the sport.
12&Under Technical Coach
Coach Miranda started swimming when she was 9 years old. She found the sport through Girl Scouts when a mom from another troop was sequining a swim suit. She went to a try it one day and was hooked. Her younger twin sister joined her and a month later they competed at their first meet!
Miranda is a middle school teacher and has an amazing supportive husband and son. She previously swam at the University of Arizona and competed at high levels in the sport, taking second at the National Championship with her team.
She has coached for Splash since she was 14 years old; and, has coached for a total of 16 years. She is grateful for her amazing experience swimming for RMS and is glad she can pass on her love of the sport!
JoJo began swimming with Rocky Mountain Splash at age 8. She competed for 8 years, culminating her competitive career with multiple appearances at US Nationals and Junior Olympics. In her final competitive year, she was elected to be a USASA Athlete Representative for the North Zone.
Her coaching career began with the Splash Masters team where she worked to corral former coaches and highly-decorated former athletes to a 1st place title at the US Masters Nationals. From there, she began coaching full-time with the Novice swimmers at Splash. She loves coaching so much that she also coaches in the off-season with the summer club team at Crestmoor Community Association in Denver. She loves working with beginners because she knows that she can instill a love of the sport at an early age and create a special bond that will carry them through their competitive career.
