Club Director and Head Coach Danielle Coggburn
Coach Danielle (Waite) Coggburn started her synchro career with the Seattle Synchronized Swim Team and medaled in several national championships. At age 16 she moved to Santa Clara to train with the world renowned Santa Clara Aquamaids, where she medaled in several national and international competitions. She has 15 years of coaching experience with Seattle Synchro, Santa Clara Aquamaids, and San Dieguito Synchro, and has now been the head coach and owner of San Dieguito Synchro for the past 5 years. In 2013 Danielle received the Developmental coach of the year award from USA Synchro and has coached National Team Development camps for swimmers from all over the country.
Danielle’s coaching philosophy has always been that she’s not only coaching synchronized swimmers, she’s developing strong young women. Her hard work, determination, passion for synchro, and love of children has led her to coach several national champions.
Danielle earned her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, multiple subject K-6 teaching credential, and Master’s degree in Special Education at SDSU and has devoted her life to working with children. She is also on the board for AWD, which is an organization devoted to helping athletes with disabilities. As a behavioral educator for children with Autism and synchro coach, Danielle’s hope is to help ALL of her athletes and students achieve their goals, no matter how big or small, and she wants to make a positive impact on every child she works with along the way. Her goal is to create a positive learning environment that fosters not only synchro and educational excellence and productivity, but also endures respect for human values in preparing her swimmers and students to be contributing and confident members of a diverse and changing society.
