Girls' Swimming | Cynthia Carlson

I’m Cynthia Carlson and I am entering my 9th year as head coach of the Dana Hills Girls swim and dive team. Our team is currently 65 members strong which includes 8 divers. We compete in the South Coast League and Division 1 of the SS CIF.


Our philosophy is simple, we expect every member to bring a positive attitude and a willingness to work hard to the pool deck each day. We focus on “controlling the controllables” and placing our daily focus on what each of us can do to improve ourselves, thereby improving the team. Also important: Character>Process>Result. Who you become throughout this process will result in success.


Tryouts are in mid January and consist of 10x100 freestyle and diving from the starting blocks. Our training season runs from the 1st day of spring semester until the end of the school year.
