Coaching Staff

Devin Callahan

Head Swim Coach

I grew up in Kirkwood and was essentially raised in Kirkwood pools. I started swimming at the age of 5 and entered KSDT at age 6 where I swam until Freshman year of Kirkwood High. During high school, I switched up my sport to play Water Polo until graduating. From high school to now I have worked with swimmers of all ages and skills for Kirkwood and Clayton as a coach and swim teacher. In addition to swimming, I have coached for the Kirkwood Water Polo Club team for middle and high schoolers since its manifestation in 2016. It's really exciting to coach for the team I grew up with, and I hope to see you on the deck!

I started diving at age 10 and fell in love! During my youth I was a state diver for Vianney Highschool, dove for many club teams and I also trained with the Olympic Diving team at Indiana University. I have been coaching diving since 2008 and this is my second year with Kirkwood. I am currently a restaurateur and have run two businesses here in Saint Louis.
