Tom returns as the head coach of the Round Rock Dolphins for his 18th season. As Head Coach his goal is to promote the sport of swimming through time improvements and having fun. He believes the purpose of summer league is to grow swimmers as athletes and to help build their confidence through learning and improving strokes in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
Tom is currently the head coach of the Round Rock High School Swim Team. He has also been coaching at RRHS for the past eighteen years and during that time period has been fortunate to see many of the Dolphin Swimmers move on to compete for the Dragon Swim Team, in College and then return to become Dolphin Coaches themselves. His teams have consistently represented RRHS at the UIL State Meet and many of his swimmers have received All State and All American status.
Tom was born and raised in Southern California but has lived in Texas since 1994. He graduated from UT Austin with a degree in History and teaches Social Studies at Round Rock High School in addition to his coaching responsibilities.
Tom, his wife Nancy and their three children (who are all Dolphins) live in Round Rock with their many animals. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, UT football and basketball (he misses Mack Brown and Rick Barnes), fishing, anything Star Wars, going to the movies, relaxing at Barton Springs and hanging out with his family.

Hey Dolphins! I am so excited to get my 5th summer as a Dolphins coach started!
I began swimming with the Round Rock Dolphins when I was 7 and continued to swim every summer with the team through high school for a total of 11 seasons!
I am attending Texas State University (Eat ‘Em Up Cats!) where I am majoring in Early Childhood Education.
I love to explore in Austin and stopping by Blenders and Bowls and Juice Land!
I am looking forward to helping swimmers achieve their goals of becoming better swimmers this season!
Hey Dolphins! My name is Hayley and I've been a Dolphin longer than I can remember! Dolphin swimming runs in my family and it's definitely a passion of mine. I'm honored to have this opportunity to share Dolphin traditions with all of you.
It's an exciting time for me because I'm transitioning from Dolphin swimmer to Dolphin coach this summer. I'm also passionate about the arts - I love to write, listen to all types of music (especially '80s songs) and work with three dimensional art media and photography. Don't be surprised if I catch you in my camera lens!
This fall, I plan to study English and Art in college, with plans to teach high school English and coach a high school swim team! Some of my favorite things are the color blue (any shade, any tone, any hue - as long as it's blue), sports movies (Remember the Titans, Pride, Miracle, The Blind Side, Rudy....I could go on!), and I could eat creamy jalapeño, queso and chips from Chuy's at every meal!
It's going to be a fun and fantastic summer full of friendships and fast swimming! Hip Zoo!
