Kileen Limvere

Head Coach

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.

I grew up in Deadwood, South Dakota and swam for the Deadwood 76ers Swim Team from the age of 4 years old through the summer following my senior year in high school.  I have a degree in Civil Engineering from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. After my husband and I moved to Aberdeen, I took on the role of a full-time stay-at-home mom and volunteer in numerous organizations to which I belonged. When my daughter and oldest son joined the Aberdeen Swim Club in 2010, I remembered how much I loved the sport of swimming. I became a member of the ASC Board of Directors in 2011. My youngest son joined the team in 2013, and it was then that I joined the staff of ASC as an assistant coach.  I have truly enjoyed my time spent as an ASC swim parent, volunteer leader, and coach. Competitive swimming gave me skills that I continue to use as an adult, as well as a childhood full of wonderful memories. I believe every child that gets involved in the sport of swimming benefits, not only from a health perspective, but also in gaining life-long skills such as goal setting, time management, communication, relationship building, and developing a strong work ethic.  As your child’s coach, I will maintain a positive atmosphere and provide encouragement while teaching them the fundamentals of the strokes.

I was born and raised in Minot, ND with my younger brother. I started swimming when I was 5 years old and have loved every minute of it. I began teaching swim lessons the summer I was old enough to teach them, and I started coaching for ASK swim club in Minot the day of my 18th birthday. When I moved to Aberdeen to pursue a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education and swim for NSU, I knew I wanted my coaching career to continue. I began coaching for ASC in 2017 and have learned a lot about swimming through the other coaches and the athletes. In the summer of 2019 I worked in Austin, TX at the University of Texas Longhorn swim camp; I learned even more about swimming and found a whole new love for the sport. My swimming career is going to come to an end this year, but I am excited to see where my coaching career goes!
