Hannah Basl Head Coach

Hello Fairfax Frogs Family! My name is Hannah Basl, and I am so honored to be returning as the head coach of this incredible team for the 2023 summer season. I was a Frog for the entirety of my swim career from the ages of 6- 18, with my last year as an athlete being the summer of 2013. I came back to assist in coaching the summer of 2014 and still thrive off all the Froggy Spirit. Some other parts of my swim journey include swimming for the Mason Makos for 8 years and being a part of the Woodson High School Swim and Dive team for 4 years. During the year I teach and coach at Falls Church High School. I am a science nerd and get to exhibit this love in my Biology and Environmental Science classes. Over the last 5 years at FCHS I have also gotten to share my love of swim and dive with the Jaguars. I have been a part of the swim and dive coaching staff since beginning at the school in 2018 and have been serving as the head coach for the last 4 years. I also coach with the Fairfax Foxes and L4 masters. I love to read and reread the Harry Potter series, binge watch British comedies, and play with my cats (Penelope, Ash, Ember) and dog (Bindi Roo).

Michael Ball Head Tadpole Coach

Hi Frogs! My name is Michael Bell and I’m very excited to be a junior coach this summer. I’m currently a senior at Fairfax High School and have swam on the Fairfax team for 4 years. I have swam with the Frogs since I was 5, and also swim for the Fairfax Foxes in the winter. I’ve been a volunteer coach for the tadpoles as well as head tadpole coach for the past few summers. Outside of swimming I enjoy hanging out with friends, traveling, and playing with my dog. Can’t wait to be coaching this season!

Maddie Kiernan Junior Coach

Hey Frogs! My name is Maddie Kiernan and I am so excited to be back coaching this season! I’m a rising senior at Paul VI High School in Chantilly and have swam for the Panthers the past three seasons. I started swimming when I was 5 with York Swim Club and have continued to swim with York year round since then. I began swimming with the Frogs when I was 10, and 7 years later I am still loving it! While distance swimming is my main thing and summer season is all sprints, I love summer swim and can’t wait for another amazing season! When I’m not in the pool, I enjoy playing softball, reading, watching TV/movies, and hanging out with friends! I love to swim and couldn't be happier to coach again this season. GO FROGS!
