Head Coach Shari Skabelund
Tiffany Ensign Clyde
Tiffany began coaching for SSAT in June of 2003, when she & her husband moved from Cache Valley to Payson. She originally hails from the Chicago area, where she was born & raised. In Illinois, she was captain of her high school swim team and trained with the prestigious B.R. Ryall (Northwest Dupage) program, where she excelled in the 100 & 200 butterfly as well as distance free. In 1996 she hung up her goggles in order to focus on academic pursuits at BYU, where she was involved in the Honors Program. As fate would have it, however, she accepted coaching positions to support herself throughout her college career both in Utah and the Chicago area and discovered a new passion. In addition to being an assistant coach for SSAT, Tiffany is also the head coach for the Springville High School program.
Tiffany has had experience in coaching swimmers of a wide range of ability levels, from novice swimmers to top-notch elite athletes. She graduated from Utah State University in Liberal Arts, and when she is not at the pool enjoys drawing, painting, playing the guitar, and gardening. Tiffany is married to Bryson Clyde, a former Springville Seal & Spanish Fork H.S. State Team alumnus, and together they are the 'parents' of a very spoiled puppy named Domino.
