Coaches (will update with 2018 Coaches soon!)
Jack Sorensen (Head Coach)
I am thrilled to be back for my 10th straight year with the Sea Devils!
2018 will be my 9th year as the head coach with the Sea Devils along with 20+ years of coaching experience. I started swim at a tender age of 4 and I have never stopped. I swam year round growing up as well as through my early college years before I transitioned to full time water polo. After college, I resumed my swim career with masters which I did for roughly 10-12 years. Having all this experience in the water has led me into a career path of teaching PE at DVHS as well as coaching swim and water polo. I have devoted much of my life to this fantastic sport and I find a lot of joy giving back to what made me into who I am today. Swim has contributed to me being a well rounded individual who understands teamwork, sacrifice, and setting as well as achieving goals, and in doing so I have built GREAT-long lasting relationships in the community.
I believe that hard work and devotion pays off, not only in swim, but in life. Swim team is a great building block to having a great happy and healthy life. I am very excited to pass on my knowledge of the sport to our team and help shape our swimmers for life both in and out of the water. We have a fantastic team, fantastic families and a fantastic environment to help your swimmers achieve all of their goals! I am thrilled to bring my passion in this sport to our team and I am thrilled for the upcoming season!
Go Sea Devils!!!
Jen Moirao (Coach - Little Devils and 6U)
I have been coaching for 16+ years for the Blackhawk HOX and now returning for my second year with the Danville Sea Devil's. I have coached a wide range of ages, from 2 - 19 years old. I have been in charge of the Mini Hox for the past several years. I have developed Mini Hox into an intro to swim team program for younger swimmers. It is exciting to watch children start out at a young and progress to 15-18s. When I am not around the pool I am a third grade teacher in Dublin. I enjoy running and taking trips to Disneyland! I am looking forward to a fun season!
