Perrin-Stsepaniuk is the Head Coach of the Nevada Desert Mermaids in Las Vegas, Nevada as well as the Head Coach for USA Synchro 12& under National Team.
Perrin-Stsepaniuk’s history with the Nevada Desert Mermaids began in 2015 when she volunteered as an assistant coach to the team under the direction of Head Coach Linda Tannenbaum. Tannenbaum’s departure in the fall of 2016 opened the path for Ludi to be hired as Head Coach.
Perrin-Stsepaniuk, affectionately known as “Ludi”, was nominated by the Nevada Desert Mermaids team members and parents who submitted a lengthy letter covering each of the criteria elements as mandated by the award application.
Criteria for the nomination of COACH OF THE YEAR included:
• Works toward development of athletes and the sport without concern for self-‐promotion or personal
• Develops and continues to carry out a consistent solid coaching program that benefits athletes and
• Recognition of coaching abilities at Zone and National qualifying levels.
• Sets an example in their attitude and ethics that inspire and motivate athletes to make the most of
their abilities and potential to reach their goals.
Excerpt from the nomination submission:
“From Ludi’s experience, she has gained so much knowledge about the sport. Ludi has passed this knowledge on to her swimmers through her coaching. She has produced hard working and successful athletes. Not only does Ludi’s coaching encourage her swimmers to become better athletes, but also to become better people. She has taught her swimmers lifetime skills that they can apply to the pool and beyond. Finally, the last reason she should be coach of the year is that she creates an environment that motivates her swimmers to work hard, stay focused and to have fun”
