Head Coach

Hi I’m Mackenzie Law.

I’ve been a member of Lake Park since I was 8 years old, and I have loved every second of it!  Since I can remember, I’ve dreamt of coaching and instilling a love of swimming into these little marlins, just like my coaches did for me. I gained my love of swimming through Lake Park, which led me to year-round swimming. I swam year-round with Wave for 7 years before I began swimming for my high school swim team. I've also worked as a lifeguard at Lake Park and Optimist pool for the past 4 years, where I’ve also taught swim lessons over the years. Last Summer was my first year coaching for Lake Park and over the school year I continued coaching for my previous year round swim team Wave. So I’m super excited to have the opportunity to continue my coaching career this summer as the Marlins Head Coach. This will be my last summer swimming alongside the Blue Marlins, but I hope to continue swimming with the club team at Appalachian State University where I will be attending this fall. I am overjoyed to be working alongside my fellow coaches to make this season a great one!

I have been swimming for Lake Park for 13 years now and have loved every season. I used to swim year round for YOTA where I was able to learn so much about the sport. I play football and basketball when I’m not swimming for Lake Park. I am homeschooled but thanks to North Carolina’s dual enrollment opportunity I am able to take my classes at Wake Tech. I will be a senior this upcoming fall. A few things about myself- I love to write, my favorite color is purple, I love chocolate, and my favorite super hero is Spider-Man.
I look forward to coaching your children this season and even more so watching them grow as swimmers and outstanding individuals!
