Just days after DC Trident general manager Kaitlin Sandeno announced Cyndi Gallagher as the head coach of the ISL team, the team also announced the additions of Rachel Stratton-Mills and Stefanie Williams Moreno as assistant coaches. This comes after Sandeno announced the team would be led by an all-female coaching staff to be the first major professional sports team to do so.

The DC Trident will be swimming in the very first International Swimming League meet in Indianapolis October 5-6 along with the Cali Condors, Aqua Centurions and Energy Standard.
