Meet the Coaches:

Glenn Bohlman, Head Coach
Hey Tidal Waves! I’m super excited to be returning as a coach for my fourth year, this time as Head Coach! I am currently attending the University of Virginia, where I am planning on studying commerce. I have been swimming since I was 5 years old and have been with the Tidal Waves for 12 years. During the course of my swimming journey, I also swam for NOVA and the JR Tucker swim team and am currently on the UVA club team. I can’t wait to work with all of the swimmers and am looking forward to a great season! 

Carson Elliott, Assistant Coach
Hi, my name is Carson Elliott and I am a senior in the Center for Education and Human Development at Glen Allen High School. I play volleyball for ODVA and I have been a Tidal Wave for the past 14 years!  I used to play bass guitar in a band and you can check out our music on Spotify under the name “Very Good Band”!  I’m still waiting to hear from a few more colleges, so I’m not sure where I’ll be going next year. I’m looking forward to a great summer swim season!
