Marin Waves Team Coaches:



David Hay, the Founder and Director of the Marin Waves Track Club has been involved in the sport for over 30 years as an athlete and coach and has been a teacher for 26 years.
David participated in track and field/XC at the middle school, high school, and college levels. During his high schools years, David was an All-League, District, and Regional performer and ran in events ranging from 200 meters to 1600 meters and cross country. He also threw the discus and competed in the long jump. David also earned Team MVP honors while at Hudson High School in Ohio.
At Ithaca College, David was a 4 year letter winner in Cross Country, Indoor Track, and Outdoor Track. David also earned All League and State honors in College, and was a member of the NCAA Championship Qualifying XC Team. David earned his BS in Health Ed/Exercise Science with a concentration in coaching. David's coaching career also started while at Ithaca College, assisting with the Ithaca High School program in 1993-94.
After College, David spent 7 years as an assistant and head coach at Los Gatos High School in Los Gatos, CA. While at Los Gatos High, David worked with numerous CCS and State qualifying Athletes and Teams. David also attended the Elite Distance/Track Camp as a coach at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA., earned his level 1 USATF certification, and attended several track and field clinics. David is a member of the Los Gatos High School Track Coaches Hall of Fame. David earned his USATF Level 2 Certification for jumps in August 2020.
In 2000, David moved to the East Bay where he was Athletic Director, P.E. Instructor, and began the school's track club at Pacific Academy (now Making Waves Academy) in Richmond, CA. David earned his MA from San Jose State University in Kinesiology/Sports Management in 2001. David also earned his California Clear Teaching Credential.
In 2004, David took a teaching position at a Private School in Mill Valley, CA. Then in 2007, David recognized a need for a track club in Marin where kids could learn the sport, train throughout the year, specialize in events they really enjoyed, and compete at the local and National level in their age group. Thus, the Marin Waves Track & Field Club was born. Since 2007, David has coached hundreds of athletes over thousands of hours at all age, ability, and competition levels. As the Marin Waves Director, David has coached 6 National Champion Award Winners, 8 National Runner-up Award Winners, 28 JO All-Americans, 17 USATF Masters All-Americans, and a National Champion in the Masters High Jump. David has also coached speed and agility to many of Marin County's most accomplished athletes in sports including lacrosse, baseball, football, basketball and soccer, some who have gone on to play at Division I Schools including Princeton, Harvard, and USF. David looks forward to a bright future where he is excited to coach some of the Bay Area’s finest athletes.
