Katy has an extensive coaching and swimming background. She grew up right here in Austin and swam summer league with the Hurricanes. She even still holds a couple of team records! She swam Division II in college. She has coached all levels of swimming including itty-bitties, summer league, club, Master’s swim, and high school. She spent a couple of years as head coach for the Cedar Park Typhoons and started the swim program for Glenn High School in LISD.
Hi, I’m Coach Caitlyn. I am currently a social studies teacher at Vista Ridge High School and will be returning for my third year as Vista Ridge’s Head Swim Coach. I am so excited to get to work with Redfish this season since summer league was always my favorite time to swim! I am also excited to be working with so many great coaches and junior coaches who I also get the privilege of coaching at VR. I can’t wait to see what this summer has to offer and to see everyone work together, improve and most importantly have fun! Goooo Redfish!
Hi! I'm Coach Kate. I am an Avery Ranch resident and mother of two: Molly and Alice. I joined the Redfish coaching staff in 2014 and absolutely love this team!
I began swimming for my neighborhood summer league team as a 6 & under and fell in love with the sport so much that I joined Longhorn Aquatics that very fall. I continued to swim for Longhorn Aquatics (then Texas Aquatics) until my high school graduation. I attended Bucknell University (Go Bison!) and swam all four years.
While swimming, I was blessed with some of the best coaches. One of my favorite coaches, Kirsten Weiss, invited me to coach with her for a summer league team after my sophomore year in college. I found that I enjoyed coaching even more than swimming. After graduate school I coached for the Ancient Mariner's swim team and Rockville Montgomery Swim Club, both in the Rockville, MD area.
I enjoy coaching all ages and abilities, but have a special place in my heart for our youngest swimmers!
I cannot wait to see how our team performs this summer!
Hi I am Coach Kathy! I am currently a Second Grade Bilingual teacher at Berkman Elementary. I graduated from Texas State University in 2016. I also graduated high school from Vista Ridge where I swam for all four years of high school. My junior year I went to State for the medley relay where we won second place. During my senior year I was captain. My favorite events were the 50 and 100 yard freestyle. I am so excited for this season and I can't wait to watch how amazing your children excel in swimming! Gooooo redfish!
Hi, I am Coach Katie! I am so excited to be part of the Redfish Swim Family this year! I am returning to Austin for the summer after working at an Internship in at Disney World in Orlando for the past year. In the fall I will be returning to Texas Tech to finish my degree. At Tech, I am also part of a Swim Team like I was in high school. In high school, I was a member of the Varsity Swim Team all four years and earned a Regionals spot my last two years, after swimming on a State team in TAPPS. I LOVE being part of a team and helping you swim fast and love the sport as much as I do! I can’t wait to get started! See you at the pool!
