Contact Coach Chris Schroeder
About Coach Chris:
Chris started Synchronized Swimming in an Army Hospital pool in Aurora Colorado, with a rulebook with pictures and an ice skating coach who was fresh from a Holiday on Ice tour. After 6 years of mostly before-school practices, she went on to the San Francisco Merionettes where she became a national team champion as well as a Pan American Game team champion. After college, she coached the Dutch National team who won gold in the European championship. She coached them in two World Championships as well, earning sixth place honors. She returned to coaching when her youngest child was 10 and now, with the benefit of a real practice venue, she is looking forward to consistency and retention, two important elements that make a great Synchro team.
Chris returned to the water herself in 1995 and continues to earn National and International titles in Masters competition.
