Coaching Staff

Elizabeth Rivera

Head Coach

Email

Hello everyone! I'm Elizabeth Rivera, and I'm so excited to be the Head Swim Coach at MacGregor Downs Country Club this year! When I'm not at the pool coaching or relaxing, I am an Elementary Special Education teacher. I married my husband Corey, a little over a year ago and we live in Knightdale with my step-son Maddox. I have been swimming competitively since the age of four when I started swimming in Summer League with my neighborhood team, I started swimming year-around at the age of eight, and continued with my summer league team as well until I was eighteen. I went to Boston University for swimming my freshman year before an injury caused me to take a step back from swimming and find my next passion, teaching! I love coaching because it combines my two favorite things, swimming and teaching! I can't wait to meet you all and find our "new normal" with summer league swimming!

My name is Claire Galloway and I have been coaching for 6 years! I am a colleagate swimmer for the University of Lynchburg in Virginia. I am majoring in exercise physiology with a minor in coaching. I plan to pursue a doctorate in physical therapy after my undergraduate. My favorite stroke in breaststroke because it looks like a frog! I love sprinting, two hand touches, and playing rock paper scissors relays at the end of good practice! I am looking forward to coaching all the McGregor swimmers and for a fun-filled summer season!
