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!!

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!
