Kileen M Limvere
My journey into the world of competitive swimming began in 1983. Prior to that I was a student in the Aberdeen Learn to Swim program taking lessons from swimmers who were on the Aberdeen Swim Club. My mom signed me up for the two-week trial after lessons and I then began swimming for the Aberdeen Swim Club thru my senior year. I graduated from Roncalli High School and after graduation attended South Dakota State University to pursue a degree in Economics with a business option. I competed for SDSU in swimming for 4 years. I was the head coach for the Aberdeen Swim Club 1995 to 1997. In 1995 my brother and I opened the Red Rooster Coffee house in downtown Aberdeen. Between 1998 and 2015 I was an assistant coach with ASC for about 15 years. In 2014 I began teaching private lessons at the YMCA for competitive swimmers. I began the head coach position here at ASC in April of 2017.
I have a long-time addiction to chlorine and seeing swimmers progress of over years. Teaching, coaching and learning more about swimming is one of my passions. I love to see children learn, be challenged and overcome obstacles especially around the water. Competitive swimming was a major part of shaping who I am, helping me to learn determination, goal setting, working as a team, and much more. These are things that we hope your children are also able to learn as they go through this program.
