 I am so excited to be back as part of Hills of Walden swimming. I started swimming when I moved to Hills of Walden in 1995, which was also the first year for the team in our neighborhood. Since that
point my entire life has revolved around swimming. I continued swimming for Hills of Walden from 9 to 18 years old. I swam at Park Hill South where I was an All-State selection. I continued on at
Missouri State where I swam and got a degree in finance. I then got my degree in education at UMSL, where I also coached one of the top summer programs in the area. Currently I am an Algebra 1 teacher at Park Hill High School where I am coaching both swim programs as well as the jumps coach on the track team. In addition to that I have recently joined a masters swim team.


There is no better feeling than coming home, and getting the honor to coach Hills of Walden is coming home for me. I hope for a very successful summer with lots of time drops and stroke improvements, and a whole lot of fun in the process as well. See everyone soon. Go Hurricanes!

The Hills of Walden Swim Team is my second family. I have been a Hurricane for as long as I could remember. Growing up on the team and now coaching for six years has been such an amazing experience and I am excited for another year! In addition to growing up on the team since the age of 4, I also swam for a year round club team as well as Park Hill South where I received multiple all-state honors. In 2015 I completed my undergraduate in Elementary Education and in 2017 I earned my Masters in Reading in the Elementary at Northwest Missouri State University (GO CATS). I am currently a fourth grade teacher at Prairie Point in the Park Hill School District. I am also the assistant coach for both the girls and boys swim team at Park Hill South High School.

 

Summer swim is my favorite time of the year and I am excited to be back to my “happy place.” I look forward to working with every swimmer to improve their strokes and to drop time! Most importantly, this team is all about having fun and enjoying not only the nice summer weather, but also amazing friendships that are formed along the way. I look forward to meeting all the new faces as we embark on this fun journey! See you soon Hurricanes!!

Swimming has been one of my biggest life passions for more than 13 years now. In the past, I swam for club teams and my high school, competing at a state and junior national level in my prime. I became part of the Hills of Walden swim family back in 2004, when I served my first summer as a mighty Hurricane. I continued to swim as a Hurricane every summer until I graduated in 2016. I am now attending college at Missouri State University, studying Exercise and Movement Science with plans of applying to either a graduate science program or medical school.
        Recently, I made the transition into coaching for Hills of Walden. This will be my second summer working here as a coach, so there is still a lot for me to learn. I look forward to improving every athlete, and working to building relationships with our families. I’m excited to help facilitate all the great things that Hills of Walden once gave me, and to hopefully create a legacy of my own. Let’s have an exciting summer, and another great swim season! Go Hurricanes!

My name is Ty Foxworthy and I will be coaching for the 2018 season. I have been
swimming competitively for 13 years and every year I’ve been a part of the Hills of Walden
Hurricanes as a summer team. After graduating from high school (and swimming), I attended
Missouri State University. I haven’t decided on a major yet, but I’d love to work with kids in
some way. I love being with all of the swimmers on the team and being able to share my old
passion with kids who are completely new to it. I hope to leave lasting impacts on each
swimmer I come across this summer. I just finished up my first semester of college and am
looking forward to the upcoming season with a new position on the team!
