During his freshman year at the University of the Incarnate Word, Aaron was a CCSA conference champion in the 200 backstroke, a 3rd place finisher in the 400 IM, and on the team record setting 4 x 200 freestyle relay.

He believes that an environment high on positivity and filled with love for the sport births great, fast swimming. Growing up through the sport, he believes swimming has built him into the person and student that he is today. The qualities instilled within him are what drive him to pass along as much knowledge to these young swimmers as possible to give them the chance that his past/current coaches have given him. 

Coming from a large swim club at Alamo Area to Streamline has showed him what advantages working in a smaller club has. From top to bottom, Aaron says, “This organization generates the best environment for young swimmers to have the opportunity to achieve anything and everything they want in the sport.” 

Georgette Lockwood

Age Group Coach

Email

Georgette Lockwood offers a creative and positive approach to learning and education in the water. She first began instructing children how to swim at the age of 13, showing up early to be a volunteer coach for summer league. After swimming for Winston Churchill Highschool, she went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree from Boston University in Theatre Arts and Acting.

After moving west, she had the opportunity of designing and coordinating the Learn to Swim program in addition to becoming the head coach of the summer league team at Alpine Hills in Portola Valley, California. Her background in the arts allows her to create an engaging and fun environment for children to learn the foundations of swimming, and her strength as a stroke technician makes her a perfect match for novice athletes.

She believes that a “growth mindset” must be encouraged at the earliest stages of swimming, instilling a strong focus on the process and not the end result. Fostering a safe environment for children to learn new skills and find the fun in accepting new challenges is paramount to their success, not only as athletes, but also, as young adults.
