Assistant Coach

Kelly and her family have a long and cherished history with MSC. When she was 7 years old she started her swimming career with the Gators. During a few of the six summers that she swam for Miramonte, her dad served as the president of the team! When she turned 13 she started swimming year-round for the USA Swimming team, Orinda Aquatics, until graduating from high school. In addition to swimming for Orinda Aquatics, Kelly swam on the Miramonte High School varsity swim team for all four years of high school, and was a captain during her senior year. Each summer during high school Kelly came back to coach for MSC.

Kelly went to college at UC Santa Barbara, and she continued coaching for MSC in the summers after her first and second year at school. After graduating from UCSB, Kelly taught swimming at the YMCA in Berkeley where she was the Swim Instructor of the Year. At the YMCA, Kelly also started swimming with the masters' team. She is beginning to participate in long distance open water races, and will be swimming in a race from Alcatraz to Aquatic Park in June! In addition to teaching swimming, Kelly is a certified lifeguard and yoga instructor.   Kelly is also excited to be starting the Master of Public Health/Registered Dietitian program at the University of Washington in Seattle in September 2018.  Kelly strongly believes swimming is a life-long practice that fosters self-confidence and a healthful lifestyle.

 

Claire Manrique

Assistant Coach

Claire has been competitively swimming in the Lamorinda area since she was 4 years old. She started her swimming at Moraga Valley Pool. She participated in a winter swim program at Campolindo called, Polar Bears, where she qualified for the Junior Olympics for the 100 breast stroke. Claire quit swimming when she was 14 to focus on water polo. She played for 680 Drivers and Lamorinda Water Polo Club. Claire decided to stop when she graduated high school due to a shoulder injury. In the total of 9 years Claire played water polo, she played in the Junior Olympics 8 times and helped her high school team win the North Coast Sectional championship game for the first time in 17 years. Claire graduated from Miramonte High School in 2016 and is now studying nursing at Diablo Valley College, with Coach Nick! Claire thought she was done with swimming until Coach Eddie and his family moved in across the street from her and Eddie asked if she wanted to swim and coach for his team. She could not be happier with her decision to come back to swim. This will be Claire’s 4th summer at Miramonte and she is so excited for another summer with her gator family!
