My name is Melissa Box and I am the head coach for the
Castlewood Dragons. I grew up in Flower Mound and started swimming
on Wellington Sharks Swim Team at a young age. In high school I
swam for FMHS and also played water polo.
I began my coaching career as a junior coach at age 11 and
worked my way up, coaching many age groups and taking over as
Assistant Head Coach while with the Wellington Sharks. In 2014 I
made the switch to Castlewood to help establish the team & was
so happy that I did! Some of you already know me from the first 3
summers, and for those of you who I don’t know, I can’t
wait to meet you!!
I currently teach Kindergarten here in LISD. It’s a blast
getting to work in the same district where I grew up!
While I am not working, I love to spend time with my family, puppy
and friends. I also enjoy exercising, coffee, spending time on my
family’s property, reading & Texas A&M
I am thrilled to be back at Castlewood for another fun summer.
The swim community, friendships and values that the sport instills
in it’s swimmers are life-long and I hope each child feels a
part of that! I can’t wait to get to know your children and
help them become better swimmers!
Christopher Raleigh Harvey
My name is Christopher Harvey, I am 17 years old, and I have
been doing Castlewood swim since the team started. I have also swam
for Marcus High for 3 years now, and have done LAC for 7 years.
When it comes to being around children, I have experience not only
with kids in general, but most of the kids that I will be helping
Melissa coach this season may remember me from previous years, as I
have helped and had fun with the kids as a junior coach before.
Thanks to prior work with the children of Castlewood, I hope to
help make this season their best one yet, especially seeing as they
did not get to participate on the team last year due to COVID. I
have also been lifeguard certified, so you can be sure to know that
your kids are in safe hands between Melissa and myself. Finally, I
would like for both the parents and children to know that I am
excited to work with the kids this season, and am looking forward
to starting up this May!
Stephanie L Coutts
My name is Stephanie Coutts and I am an Assistant Coach for this
amazing team! I am going to be a senior at Marcus High School, and
I will be joining the Marcus Swim Team next year. I have been
passionate about playing the trumpet and am part of the Marcus Band
where I hold a Section Leader position.
I have been a part of the Castlewood swim team since fifth grade
and have done it every summer. Before Castlewood, I started
swimming when I was 6 years old and it’s always been a hobby
I enjoy. The last couple years, I was a junior coach and now
I have the honor to be an official coach.
I love helping people out and watching them grow into their
fullest potential. I can’t wait to see the season ahead
of our team!
The Castlewood swim team always has had a special place to my
heart and I am honored to be a part of helping each individual
swimmer. I love helping people out and watching them grow into
their fullest potential. I can’t wait to see the season
ahead of our team!
