Gabby is a USA Swimming certified coach and former coach for the GACC swim team for summer 2022. Additionally, she worked as a coach for the South Louisiana Swim Team for three years and as a swim lesson instructor for Safe Swim. Swimming has always been a huge part of Gabby’s life. She has swum competitively for both SLST since age nine and for Mount Carmel Swim Team during high school. (Fun fact: Gabby’s favorite stroke is breaststroke!) When she is not coaching, she is a student at Louisiana State University who is majoring in Pre-Med Psychology.
Alex is a USA Swimming certified coach who has three years of experience coaching and teaching swim lessons at South Louisiana Swim Team, resulting in 1,000 hours of experience between the two. She also has nine years of experience as a competitive swimmer, so she knows how to make being a part of the swim team enjoyable while also teaching important skills in the water.
Kaci is a USA Swimming and ASCA certified swim coach. She has been an assistant or head coach at Green Acres several times between 2005 and 2014. She swam as a GACC dolphin and year round with CCSC throughout childhood. Coach Kaci has worked with the 8 & Under and developmental swimmers with SLST since its inception almost 13 years ago. She created Safe Swim in 2020 and is passionate about making swim lessons and aquatic sports accessible. She’s excited to be back at Green Acres this season and looks forward to helping our swimmers reach their goals.
