Alex Beam
Head Swim Coach

Hi everyone! My name is Alex and I am so excited to be joining the Waves this summer! A little bit about me — I am a 2024 UW-Madison grad with a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I have been involved in the Madison swimming scene for the past several years, both as a coach and an official. I grew up swimming for the Blair Blue Dolphins every summer, and I have such fond memories with those teammates. I can’t wait to make more memories with y’all this summer!
