AquaStarz Head Coach
Cristina Martinez-Canton - Cristina swam for 7 years with the Santa Clara Aquamaids. Fun (maybe embarrassing) fact about Cristina: She was on the Nickelodeon TV show, Figure It Out, for being the solo national champion in her age group. In high school, her treading water skills landed her as goalie on the water polo team and she led her team to BVAL championships. She also played water polo for UCSC. She has been a swim instructor for over 18 years and loves to teach anything water related! When Cristina is not in the water or on the deck, she is teaching in the classroom, dancing hip hop, dangling from aerial silks, teaching yoga, being flown by her acrobatics buddies, and eating ice cream! This is Cristina's seventh year coaching Aquastarz.
Meredith Simoneau - Meredith has been a synchro coach since the age of 14, and has been coaching the AquaStarz since 2009. She has swam and coached for the FEC Stingrays, Riverside Aquettes, and Sacramento Synchronized Swim Teams, but she considers the Davis AquaStarz her home team. Meredith is proud of the unique team that has been built here in Davis and enjoys seeing swimmers grow and flourish in their passion for synchro, advance in their skills, and perfect their abilities not just as swimmers but as teammates and lifelong friends. Meredith is excited to be back for her 13th season with the AquaStarz and for many great days and swims ahead.
We are always looking for qualified synchro coaches.
