Kyle grew up swimming in Utah, both in High School and on a club team. He was a sprinter, competing mostly in breaststroke, butterfly, and freestyle. Over the past 10 years Kyle has been coaching and teaching athletes how to swim, focusing on the details of stroke mechanics and technical stroke enhancements. He loves working with kids and helping them realize their potential in and out of the pool.
In 2017, as Head Coach, Kyle led the Fountain Valley High School Girls Varsity team to League Champions. This year, Kyle is extremely excited to be a Gator and looks forward to working closely with both athletes and parents to reach their swimming goals!
There are numerous Assistant Coaches who support Coach Alec and the Greenbrook Gators throughout the season. They're in the pool each practice, lining kids up at each meet, and at the blocks for each race ensuring our swimmers are ready to go! We couldn't be successful without them!
