Coach's Letter

Dear Friends of Women’s Swimming and Diving,

This is truly an exciting time for our Fairfield Swimming and Diving family! With a new President, new Athletic Director, and many new buildings going up around the campus we are being positioned to make great strides in the MAAC and as a program here at Fairfield. My vision for our program is to make Fairfield the standard for the MAAC and our peers in the region. We have a strong academic institution that students are excited to be a part of.

Our program is making strides due to the wonderful support from friends and families during 2016-2017, with a tremendous amount of that support coming from STAGiving Day. 

We’ve added two more overnight trips this season — Boston College Invitational and Providence dual meet. We’ve completely reoutfitted our team members with Speedo training equipment and Nike gear for travel and the weight room.

2017-2018 will be the year of the STAG. We’ve increased our goals to enhance this season and our program for the future.

As you know, even the smallest contributions help with supplementing our budget for travel, meals, and necessities for our student-athletes. If you haven’t been able to support the program yet, feel free to do so by going to
