Noah Reid Head Coach

Noah Reid grew up in Kansas City, where he started swimming at the age of nine for New Mark Stingrays. He then moved to swim year-round with the Tsunami Swim Team, where he remained until he graduated high school.

After graduating from Staley High School in 2016, he moved to Tucson, Arizona, to continue swimming and pursue a Management Information Systems degree from the University of Arizona. During his college career, he has been a multiple-time All PAC-12 and NCAA All American and an Olympic trial qualifier.

Noah’s primary goal as a coach is to build relationships with his swimmers while helping them find their passion in the water, just like he did at New Mark.

Assistant Coaches

We are excited to announce our assistant coaches for the Summer.

Kirsten Aken

Hello there! This is my third year coaching for the New Mark Stingray and couldn’t be more happy to be apart of this great team. I graduated from College of Saint Mary this May (2021) with an Education Degree. I swam all my life, and my specialty is breaststroke/ IM. I grew up on the Hills of Walden Hurricanes and continued swimming for Blue Wave, NLU, and Club North. I swam on my High School and College teams as well. I recently retired from swimming but I will still be coaching for New Mark and NLU during this summer. I love this sport so much and I want to give the same experiences I received from my coaches to New Mark swimmers and help them fall in love with swimming just as much as I did. 

Nick Verwers

I started swimming with the Stingrays at age 7 and swam all 4 years at Staley High School making state each year. I'm currently attend Northwest Missouri State double majoring in data science business and mathematics. Outside of school and swim, I like bike riding and watching any sport there is to see. I wanted to be a coach because I've always loved summer swim and I want the kids on the team to like it as much as I did!

Spencer Adamson

Spencer Adamson has been swimming in the Northland Conference since he was 4 years old. His favorite stroke is butterfly. He was a member of the All-State swim team for 3 years and is the current Staley High School Record holder in 100 fly. In the fall, he will attend Northern Michigan University as a member of the university swim team and study biology. His favorite things about swimming are being part of a team, spending time with his friends, and reaching his goals. When he isn’t swimming, he enjoys eSports, reading, and hanging out with his friends. He is looking forward to coaching this summer because his coaches have been great role models in his life and helped him to accomplish his goals and he hopes to follow in their footsteps.

Joe Roberts

I have been swimming with the New Mark Stingrays since I was five years old. I will be graduating with the class of 2021 from Staley this spring. I have swam for both Blue Wave and Club North swim teams. My favorite stroke is the freestyle. I was part of the record breaking 200 free relay at Staley high school in 2020. I swam high school all four years and was team captain my senior year.

Swimming has always been a huge part of my life. My older brother Jack Roberts, was the head coach last year and really learned a lot watching him work with the team and how much enjoyment it brought him. I love working with kids and enjoyed being a rookie assistant to the little stingrays the most.

I will be attending the University of Missouri in the Fall. In my spare time I enjoy video games and playing basketball.

Cassidy Boord

I have been a part of the New Mark Stingrays since I was 5 years old. Additionally, I was a part of the Staley High School Swim Team.  At Staley, I was a varsity swimmer all four years.  Not only was I on the varsity team, I also made it to state all four years. My favorite stroke is the butterfly and has been what I focused on and competed throughout my swimming career. I currently attend Truman State where I am on the Track and Field team. I am looking forward to another wonderful summer as a coach for the Stingrays.
