Coaching Staff

Bridget Beckerich

Head Dive Coach


I started diving for  Brookwood 6 years ago, ever since I have loved every moment of being a bluefish! Being a bluefish  isn’t only like being apart of a team, but we are like a family! I became the head coach last summer and can’t wait to be back as the head coach this year! I will be a senior next year at Dixie Heights and would like to attend the University of Kentucky to become a teacher! 


Favorite dive: back 1 1/2 

Favorite ice cream: black raspberry chip

Helen Kennedy Michels

8 & Under Age Group Coach


I have been swimming since I was 7, at several different clubs, but when I was 13 I joined  Brookwood and I knew it was where I belonged. Along with my eleven years of summer swim, I swam for my high school, Dixie Heights, for 6 years and plan to keep swimming on the University of Cincinnati's club team while studying industrial design in the fall. I am so excited to be working with the 8 & under and the 11 & 12 age groups this summer and I can't wait to see what this season will hold!

I started swimming for  Brookwood when I was just 7 years old and have enjoyed swimming every summer for the Bluefish since then. Along with swimming for  Brookwood, I joined the Northern Kentucky Clippers and swam for them for 6 years. At Covington Catholic, I was on the swim team for 3 years. This is my first year coaching at  Brookwood and I'm excited to have fun and get to work with the 11-12 and 9-10 age groups. This fall I will be attending Rollins College where I will be playing lacrosse and majoring in Business Social Entrepreneurship.
