BJ MacDonald

10 & Under Coach

Email

My name is BJ MacDonald and I come to the team with many years of experience as a swim instructor and coach. I started my swimming career at Larkin High School where I was a member of the first girls high school team in 1974 when in it was a spring sport. This will be my second summer back with the Barracudas and I will be coaching the 10 and under swimmers.
My goals of building the Cary team are that in order to have a good team you must build from the bottom up. Therefore the 8 and under age group will be taught the basics of swimming all four of the competitive strokes as a solid foundation for young swimmers to build upon.

I am ecstatic to be coaching the Barracudas this summer! Competitive swimming became a part of my life when I was 10, and has remained something near and dear to me ever since. For my high school career, I swam for the Sage YMCA Piranhas, D155 Boys Co-op Swim Team, and the Trails of Algonquin. My proudest accomplishment in the pool is qualifying in 9 events for the 2017 YMCA National Championships. This fall, I will be attending Lake Forest College to major in biology>

 

Favorite Race: 200 IM

Hey guys! I'm pretty thrilled to be coaching this year, especially since I started swimming at the same age as this group. Overall, I've swam under Cary Barracudas, Mundelein Mustangs, Sage YMCA Piranhas, and all four years ofD155 Boys Co-op Swim Team. My favorite achievement would have to be receiving the Bryan Bullock award. It reminds me of all the great takeaways this team can provide to both coaches and swimmers . I can't wait to meet all the swimmers, and help improve their ability throughout the season.

 

Favorite Band: Fleetwood Mac

Favorite Team: Chicago Cubs
