Chloe Hubbard

Novice Coach


I began swimming summer swim league when I was 5 years old in East Lake, Florida. This is when I fell in love with the sport of swimming. At age 11, I started year round swimming with St. Petersburg Aquatics where I swam until graduation along with the Palm Harbor University High School swim team. During age group swimming I was selected to swim in All-Star meets. Throughout high school I qualified for all four state meets, and was a part of the girl’s runner-up state team. I was also a part of the All-County girl’s team for both academics and athletics.  I am currently a full time Florida State University student majoring in Business-Hospitality Management. Along with coaching the ATAC novice group I teach swim lessons for Tallahassee Swim School. I love working with kids and would love to give them the great experience I had as a novice swimmer and beyond.
