Head Swim Coach
My main goal in coaching swimmers is to make it FUN! It has been my experience that swimmers and divers who have fun come to practice. If they come to practice, they improve. If they improve, then they win as individuals, and we win as a team. – Judy Hemmerle

My name is Alexa Crossgrove, I am going to be a tenth grade student at Souderton area high school in the fall. I have grown up with this team. I have been swimming for 10 years for the Harleysville summer swim team and the Souderton winter swim team, and this year I had the chance to swim for the high school team.
Throughout the summers, I have been able to participate in the deckhands program. I have enjoyed working with the kids through that program and being able to help the kids learn how to swim better. This year I am really looking forward to working with the kids and I hope to be able to be a good influence and help them get better at swimming.
