This summer will be Riley’s second as head coach of the Marlins. Prior to becoming Head Coach he spent two seasons as an Assistant Coach and numerous summers as a Future Marlins Coach. A home grown coaching prodigy, Riley began swimming with the Marlins in the Futures program before becoming a member of the team. In the winter, Riley swam for York Swim Club and was a Captain of the Langley High School Swim team where he graduated in 2016.

Riley is a graduate from the College of William & Mary where he majored in Government. As a certified USA Swimming Coach, Riley spends his spare time in Williamsburg coaching for 757 Swim, a local USA swimming team. However, he is currently seeking employment. Please hire him.

Riley is ecstatic to return to MSTA for another season as Head Coach and hopes to pass on his love for the Marlins, as well as the importance of leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship to all swimmers.

Hi Marlins Families! My name is Elena Loria and I couldn't be more excited to Coach Future Marlins and Group Lessons this upcoming season. I've been a part of the Marlins since I was an eight and under. I am currently a freshman at James Madison University and I am planning on pursuing a career in nursing in college. I enjoy working with children and have done so through Marlins for the past couple of years as well as babysitting, volunteer opportunities, assisting my mother in her preschool, and caring for my nieces and nephews. I'm also proud to say my nine siblings have been a part of the Marlins swim program over the years and each one  has fond memories of their Marlins summers. I look forward to creating these lifelong memories with your children this summer!
