Luz L Moore
Team Manager, Head Coach
Coach Lucy has been coaching since 1992 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, and daughter Iliana are both accomplished swimmers on the team.
Coach Marco assists with our Age Group Select, Gold, as well as Pre-Senior groups on the deck here at Cerritos College. He has been a part of the Lakewood Aquatics family from the time he was the age of the swimmers he currently coaches. Coach Marco was a varsity swimmer all four years at Long Beach Poly High School, winning the All League Award for the 100 butterfly his junior and senior year. He currently attends Long Beach City College and plans to transfer this upcoming Fall 2019. Coach Marco is very grateful for the opportunity that Coach Jon and Lucy have given him to teach our young swimmers the same way they once taught him.
