MEET THE 2019 COACHES:

Dany Kotlyar- Co-Swim Coach
“Hi Flying Fish!  I am so excited to be coaching my favorite swim team this summer!  I swam for Forestbrooke for 10 seasons and was a 3-time WISC Champion.  I also swam for Club Wolverine and Huron where I was an All-State breaststroker.  I just graduated from the University of Michigan with a business degree and will be moving to Chicago in August.  Forestbrooke has always been my home during the summer- it holds some of my favorite memories, best friends and is the place that cultivated my love for swimming.  I am so thankful to be back this year and I cannot wait to have the best season yet with my team. Go F.A.S.T!!”

Sarah Densham- Co-Swim Coach
Sarah grew up swimming and diving at the Chippewa Club. She dives on the Junior Olympic team at Club Wolverine Diving. Sarah was also a four-year member of Saline’s varsity swim and dive team, a MHSAA Division 1 States Qualifier, and an All-American Academic Honoree. She just graduated from Saline High School, and will be diving at Kalamazoo College in the fall. Sarah loves working with children and is very excited to help create a positive and fun experience for the team!

Mike Folk- Dive Coach
Growing up in Ann Arbor, Mike Folk swam at OHAC from a young age. He moved to Diving as a middle schooler and became competitive to the State level when diving for 4 years at Huron High. This is his third year coaching the Flying Fish Divers. Mike, his wife Rachel and two kids Charlotte and Oliver love the water!

Anna Boerst- Assistant Dive Coach
“I have been a part of the Forestbrooke community since 2011 when I joined the swim team. Two years later, I started diving on the Forestbrooke team and have been diving ever since. On top of my Forestbrooke diving experience I have been part of the varsity dive team at Huron High School for three years. For the past two years I have really enjoyed helping our Forestbrooke diving coaches. I am looking forward to supporting divers again this summer through a role as assistant coach!”
