Emily Kustka Head Coach

Hi! My name is Emily Kustka. I swam on the Highcroft Hurricane for fifteen years, and I was a year-round swimmer with RSA for 8 years. I’m so excited for this season- it’s sure to be filled with lots of laughs, hard work, and team spirit! This fall I will be a Senior EC Scholar at ECU, studying social work and gerontology. Over the summer, I’m always having fun with kids- usually at the pool. I love to coach Highcroft as well as give private lessons. This summer is going to be so much fun! Get ready for lots of cheering and spirit!

See you at the pool,

Coach Emily

I love coaching and being with kids but when I’m not coaching you can still usually find me at the pool. I’m so excited for the summer. Go Hurricanes.
