Hi there! I received my degree in Exercise Science and am currently going to grad school for Sports Administration. I have been coaching for about 15 years now. I have coached most of that time with club swimming and 6 years I have coached high school swimming. I have coached a wide range of swimmers with even wider skill ranges.
I am all about helping swimmers grow into great athletes. I am here to help them get faster by swimming smarter not harder. While yardage is important I really stress that technique and efficiency is the key to swimming fast. This will help prepare them for the next level.
Making swimming fun is another priority of mine. Mindless swimming only produces minimal results when compared to a swimmer that is fully engaged mentally. I create and coach in a manner that requires your mind to be constantly thinking. This is done through sets as well as games and challenges.

Black Group Coach
Hi! My name is Kimiko
My love for swimming all started
when I had my first swim lessons at Haynes pool at the age of
three. Since then I have always loved the water, but I didn't
competitively swim until I joined my first club team at the age of
ten. I have swam competitively for eight years. Three of those
years I have swam with Mako and have learned the culture and that
technique is a big part of making swimmers reach their full
potential. In addition to swimming club, I also have swam with the
Rio Rancho High School Team for four years. For my last year of
high school swimming, I had the opportunity to be captain, which
helped me realized I enjoy helping others reach their goals.
I am currently going to UNM. I am in the
Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media program. With the
knowledge I have gained over my eight years of swimming and one
year of coaching, I am very excited to teach and help swimmers
reach their full potential.
