Age Group Select - Cerritos College

What makes Lakewood Aquatics amazing is the diverse coaching team’s tremendous talent, dedication and absolute love for swimming. Coach Lucy is the model from which the team works, in that regard.

Coach Lucy has been coaching since 1992 (25 years!) and has been with Lakewood Aquatics since 2004. She took the reign as head coach in 2007, and working alongside her husband Jon Moore, they have built the team into the regional power it now is – and the best is yet to come. Now as team manager and with Jon as Head Coach, they continue to augment the lives of every child involved in the program through a supportive team environment grounded in dedication, character, and a love for aquatics.

Coach Lucy is a talented and outstanding role model and mentor. Not only is she an expert coach; but she is also that trusted friend and guide who always makes the swimmers her priority. She has deep and meaningful relationships with the swimmers, as well as the families. Her swimmers revere her and are seen rushing over to see her before and after practice, every single day. Coach Lucy, with her passionate and caring approach to coaching, is the what binds the team together.

Watching Coach Lucy’s powerful presence even during just one swim practice on the pool deck, one can easily recognize her excellence. She is commanding, attentive and direct in the most caring way. She expects the swimmers to perform at their best and is perceptive to their individual personalities. She focuses on their technique and motivation for improving their times. She offers a rigorous and creative training session every day, and is the type of coach that goes the extra mile and offers excellent swim education regarding core training, nutrition, hydration, and sportsmanship. She encourages personal responsibility and good citizenship among the Lakewood Aquatics team.  She is truly inspirational; her vision and selfless compassion makes Lakewood Aquatics the best team in Southern California! 

Lucy learned to swim at South Gate Park with the Gators and fell in love with the feel of the water at the age of six. She started working in the field of aquatics at just 18, and enjoys teaching all ages the power of water and the satisfaction of accomplishing their goals. Lucy swam collegiately at Cal State Los Angeles, specializing in distance freestyle. Her son Marcus (12), and daughter Iliana (16) are both accomplished swimmers on the team.

Assistant Coach

Assistant Coach, Nov 2016-present, Pre-Comp Lessons 2015-2016

Frogs & Fast Fish - Cerritos College

Coach Tadeo competitively swam for over eleven years. He swam with Lakewood aquatics and Downey high school. In 2015  Coach Tadeo was league record holder for the 200free, 100fly, 100 back stroke and CIF finalist. He has been part of the coaching staff for over a year but has 6 years working as a swim instructor. Not only is he a dedicated swim coach and instructor, but Coach Tadeo is also a full time Cerritos College student studying to become a Registered Nurse.

Coach Tadeo is one of the youngest coaches at Lakewood Aquatics. Being closer in age to some of the swimmers he coaches affords a rare opportunity for certain swimmers to better identify with him. He has a relaxed coaching/mentoring style as he establishes an easy rapport with the swimmers. He can be seen “hi-fiving” them as they crowd around him to discuss the swim session of the day. Furthermore, due to his easy-going but mature coaching style, Coach Tadeo has the ability to quickly reach the mind and emotions of the young swimmer. With this skill he has been successful in identifying and making poignant suggestions for the young swimmer’s stroke technique. The swimmers coached by him have made tremendous technical improvement partly due to the confidence he instills in them, every single practice.
