Coaching Staff

Tara Young

Head Coach

Email

I starting coaching when I was 18 at the Carlisle Swim Club. I attended Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College) where I swam and earned my degree in Exercise Science and Physical Education. After having four children close together we moved to the Carlisle area in 2001. I started coaching at the Carlisle Family YMCA in 2002 and have been here ever since. Along with coaching at the Y, I am the head coach at the Carlisle Swim Club and for the Carlisle High School Swimming and Diving Team. I have my USA swimming certification as well as American Swim Coaches Association level 1-4 coaching certification. My favorite part of coaching is watching the swimmers progress through the years from a beginner all the way to national level swimmers. My goal is to have the swimmers become competitive, but also develop a life long love of the sport.

I am Michael Ferguson, better known as Coach Ferg. I swam competitively for 10 years and have spent the majority of my life in or around the pool area. This will be my second year coaching for the Carlisle Family YMCA. I am a special education teacher for Cumberland Valley School District. My favorite part about coaching is watching the kids grow and become better swimmers throughout the season.
