Meet Our Coaches!
My Name is Alyssa Cotreau(April). I have been the Head coach of the BGCN Aquamarines for 15 years. I started synchronized swimming when in was in 3rd grade on the Nashua Aqua Y’s, in the late 90’s we moved to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua as the New Hampshire Aquamarines and we are now known as the BGCN Aquamarines. I have been a coach and judge since high school and love the sport of synchronized swimming! I have recently joined my fellow Aquamarine coaches and coaches form area teams to compete in US Masters Nationals. When I am not at the pool I work at a financial firm in the area and have my husband Greg and my kids ages 6 and 2.
Age Group Coach
My name is Sammy and I has been with the coaching staff for the past 3.5 years working with both the Novice group and the Age group Team. Before that I swam for the BGCN Aquamarines for 14 years, qualifying for various national championships while swimming. As a swimmer I coached the novice team for three years as well. After I graduated, I went to St. Michael's College where I was a diver, I just couldn't stay away from the pool. In changing my major and transferring schools I got back into the synchro world. I began coaching with the team and back competing again at the Masters level along with other coaches from the NESSA region and our team. Besides being involved with synchro I work as the Aquatics Director at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua.

My synchro career came to a pause after high school, but I couldn’t stay out of the water for long so I started a competitive swim team program at my college, Salve Regina University.
