Hello Fairfax Frogs Family! My name is Hannah Basl, and I am so honored to be the head coach of this incredible team beginning the summer of 2022. 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 cannot wait to be a part of the Frog Spirit once again. 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 4 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 3 years. Recently, I have started coaching a couple days a week with a Master’s Swim Program. When I am not teaching, coaching, or checking people in for their workouts at Orangetheory Fitness I love to read and reread the Harry Potter series and Historical Fiction books. I also love to binge watch Survivor and play with my cats (Penelope, Ash, Ember) and dog (Bindi Roo).

Hey Frogs! I am excited to be the Assistant Head Coach for the Fairfax Frogs this summer. I’ve been a Frog since I was six years old, which is why I am happy to be able to return this summer as a coach. Being a part of the Frogs has always been a big part of my life. Aside from Frogs, I’ve spent my swim career with the Mason Makos for 4 years, on the Woodson Swim and Dive team for 4 years, and am just getting started this year on the University of Florida Club Swim and Dive team. I am currently a student at UF studying applied physiology and kinesiology. I don’t really like chemistry, but other than that, science is my favorite subject in school. When I’m not studying or coaching, I really enjoy working out, playing video games, and hanging out with my friends. I’m looking forward to a great summer with you all!

Hi Frogs! I am super excited to be returning to the Frogs this summer in a different capacity as your Evening Program Coach. I started swimming for the Frogs when I was 5 years old. I also swam for the Mason MAKOS as well as the Fairfax Foxes. I graduated from Fairfax High School and swam all four years under Coach Jennifer and was a Captain my Senior year. I had the opportunity to assist Coach Jennifer with the Winter Frog Program. It has been so much fun seeing you all grow in the water! This will be my second summer season coaching. When I am not coaching, I am a volunteer Firefighter for Station 502 in Prince William County and I run my own Lawn and Landscaping business MTMLawncare. I am looking forward to an incredible season! Go Frogs : )

Hey Swim team! My name is Ryan Hough, I am 16 years old and a rising junior at Trinity Christian School. I am so excited to kick off another amazing summer with the Frogs! I have been swimming with the Frogs since 2010 when I began as a tadpole, until now 12 years later! Along with the Frogs I competitively swim with the Fairfax Foxes and I am a captain on my high school team, Trinity Christian school swim and dive team. As well as swimming I have given lessons and coached for about three years now and I am so excited to coach this season alongside the other amazing Frogs coaches. When I'm not swimming I love being outside, fishing, traveling, and most of all playing guitar. As I said before, I love everything swimming and I could not be more excited to Coach this season. GO FROGS!

I've been swimming with the Frogs since I was 5 years old and have been swimming in the A meets. In 10th grade, I started swimming year round with the Fairfax Foxes. My best strokes are Fly and Free, but I also enjoy swimming Back and Breast. Outside of swimming, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, I enjoy music whether that is teaching myself songs on the piano or singing and I also really like learning languages.
Hey Frogs! I am so excited to coach this year! I am a rising Junior at Paul VI High School and have swam for the Panthers the past two 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 6 years later I am still loving it! When I am 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 this season. GO FROGS!
My name is Jack. I have been swimming since I was 5 years old. I’ve done high school swim for two years. One of which was in Colorado where I lived last year, and the other was at Woodson this year. Both years I made the state team. My favorite strokes are Butterfly and Backstroke. This is only my second year as an official frog, but I’ve felt like a frog my whole life. I’m super excited to be a part of the coaching team this year!
