Adrienne Poullas - Aquatic Coordinator, Aquatic Fitness Instructor

Hi all! I started here at HCP as a participant, and immediately fell in love with all things aquatic fitness. I started teaching Hydrospin in summer 2017 and received my AEA Certification that December. I started teaching on deck not long after my second son was born in 2018 and received my American Council on Exercise Group Fitness Instructor Certification in 2019. I've attended our international Aquatic Fitness Conference in 2018, 2019, and 2020(virtually). I love being on deck, teaching, instructing, motivating, and inspiring my students so much, I applied for the aquatic coordinator position in March 2020 when it became available. I was hired that same month and accepted the position during the Covid-19 pandemic, which has proved to be a weird, but exciting time to take over. I am looking forward to help grow our programs and continue the successes of the Hubbard Community Pool! When I'm not at the pool, I'm hanging out with my two boys, Jordy & Roscoe, and my Air Force Husband, Nick.

DARLA EVANS - LEAD ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISANT

Hello, I'm Darla Evans. I started at the pool in March of 2014 when I was hired as an evening and weekend secretary and continued in that position until 2017 when I stepped into the role of Lead Administrative Assistant. My professional background is in graphic design and I've been able to do a little of that here at the pool along with my office duties. I've done t-shirt designs, logos, flyers, and signs pretty much since I started so, chances are, you've seen some of my work. In my spare time I like to do crafts, read, and spend time outside, no matter what weather northeast Ohio throws at us! Working at the pool has allowed me to meet so many new people, if you don't already know us here, stop by and I'll be happy to show you around.

Aaron Wirtz - Kraken Swimming Head Coach

Kayla Aldan - Kraken Swimming Assistant Coach

Greetings! My name is Kayla, and my story begins with me being terrified of the water. My parents signed me up for swim lessons and for a while, I refused to get in. After becoming comfortable in the water, I joined the swim team at Boardman Tennis & Swim Club (BTSC). During the winter, I trained with Penguin Swimming and when I got to high school, I swam for Boardman High School where I was appointed captain my senior year, a State competitor, and a 4-year Varsity letter recipient. Upon graduation, I attended the University of Mount Union where I swam for 2 years and was a Varsity letter recipient both years. While I was in high school and college, I worked as an assistant swim coach at BTSC. I left the sport for a while before returning again in March 2018, and I started coaching again that summer for Kraken Swimming. It’s not uncommon to find me hanging around the pool with my crochet and spinning projects.

Marissa Davis - Lead Swim School Instructor

Hey everyone, my name is Marissa. When I turned 15 my mother made me go get a job, so she enrolled me in a lifeguard class. After about a year of being a lifeguard, I began teaching swim lessons at the Youngstown YMCA. I have experience instructing all ages. In addition to a parent-child course and group lessons, I gave private lessons for students who wanted more one-on-one time. The thing I loved the most about my job was meeting new people and watching students make progress in their swimming journey. After graduating high school in 2017, I attended the United States Military Academy at West Point. While I didn’t have the time to remain an instructor, I helped many of my friends in the pool as we were required to take a water obstacle course to graduate (look it up, it’s really hard!!). I recently returned home to Youngstown and jumped at the opportunity to teach lessons again. I’m so excited to join the HCP team and get this program started off right.

My name is Maddie Baker and I am the Head Lifeguard. I am a 2018 graduate of Hubbard High School. I first started coming to the pool when I was a swimmer on the USA swim team and eventually the high school swim team. In 2015 I began working as a lifeguard and soon after started teaching swim lessons and coaching the summer swim league. Currently I manage the lifeguards as well as coach year round. When I'm not at the pool I enjoy taking care of horses and being outdoors. I have always loved coming to the Hubbard Pool and know everyone will enjoy it too.

Joe Spurio - Aquatic Fitness Instructor, Swim Instructor, Swim Coach

Hello, I am Joe Spurio. I started working at the pool in April of 2011 as a lifeguard. Soon after, I became a coach for the Summer Swim League, Private Swim Lesson Teacher, and Water Aerobics Instructor. I love helping patrons at the pool reach their goals; whether it be learning how to swim, being challenged during water aerobics workouts, or just discovering new ways to stay healthy and active. Outside of the pool, I am a full-time Graduate Assistant for Choral Conducting at Youngstown State University and the Assistant Choir Director of the Shenango Valley Chorale. In my spare time I like to sing, play piano, work out, and spend time outdoors! If you see me around the pool, please come say "hello"!
