Lindsay Struempf Co-Head Coach

I am 31 years old and my husband and I have a daughter named Kylie who will be 8 years old in July. I coach various teams throughout the year including Northgate water polo and Lamorinda water polo. 

I started swimming at 5 years old on Vista Diablo Dolphins and stayed on this team until age 18. I also swam and played water polo all four years in high school at Ygnacio Valley, then went on to swim and play water polo for two years at DVC. My swim team went to State for DVC where my 200 free relay got 1st place and our women’s team came in 4th over all.

This will be my 10th season coaching for VDD. I’m so excited and happy to be coaching again for Vista Diablo Dolpins again this season along with Coach Emily! I grew up on this team and it is really close to my heart. Our coaching staff will create an environment where your swimmer will be having fun as well as working hard and becoming the best they can be. I hope to help make this a positive experience that you will cherish forever. Go Dolphins!!!

Emily Heindel Co-Head Coach

Hi dolphins!

I am so excited to begin yet another swim season! This will be my 10th season coaching VDD! I also coach Northgate high school water polo and Lamorinda water polo throughout the year. During the off season I teach kindergarten at Sun Terrace Elementary Magnet School in Concord. I absolutely love it, but am also always looking forward to the summers! 

I started my swimming career on Vista Diablo when I was 4 years old. I then continued swimming on the team until I was 18. I swam and played water polo at Ygnacio Valley High School and continued playing polo and swimming at Merced College. My water polo team in college went on to win the Northern California tournament and took 4th place at State.

Coaching has always been more than just a job to me. It is something I truly do enjoy and is a passion of mine! I love working with kids of all ages. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing them improve and seeing the smiles on their faces when they do! Coach Lindsay and I grew up on this team together and I am very excited to coach yet another season with her! I hope that together we can make this an unforgettable experience for all our swimmers, just as our coaches did for us!
