Andy Pym has been named head coach for Redmond/Kirkland-based WAVE Aquatics, returning home to the Pacific Northwest after a few years coaching in The Woodlands, Texas.

Before the Woodlands, Pym was head coach/senior coach with the Bellevue Club Swim Team for 13 years and has 27 years of coaching experience, working with athletes of all ages and abilities.

He has a long history of helping athletes qualify and participate at the junior national, national and Olympic trial level, and has consistently helped athletes achieve their dream of swimming in college, according to a press release.

Pym’s philosophy list notes, “The swimmers are encouraged to dream big, set lofty goals, and understand that it takes commitment and effort to reach those goals. It is a partnership between coaches and swimmers where we will work together, and hold each other accountable.”

He replaces Tyson Wellock, who was head coach at WAVE for nine years.
