Email

Coach Kerry came on as interim coach of Walnut Creek Masters in October of 1980. In February of 1981, he was hired as the team's second Head Coach, commenting during the interview process that he could see himself committing to the position for 5 years. The rest, as they say, is history. Kerry is a Level 5 ASCA Masters Coach, 1987 USMS Coach of the Year, and 1992 Pacific Masters Coach of the Year.  As catalyst and lead coach of the WCM Intensive Training Camp starting in 1988, it is nationally recognized as the longest running and most successful  swim camp in United States Masters history. Kerry enjoys sharing is enthusiasm for teaching and mentoring with others, and throughout his tenure has lead Camps and Clinics across the country. In 2009, United States Masters Swimming initiated the Kerry O'Brien Coaching Award to honor others who share his passion and dedication to the profession of masters coaching. 
He also tries to lead by example, and is very active in competitive pool events, finding the personal challenge and "team" component much to his liking. Kerry's wife and fellow WCM member Charlene O'Brien has been registrar for Pacific Masters Swimming since 2013. Coach Kerry is on deck Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
"It's the people that make Masters Swimming great, and nowhere is that more true than on Walnut Creek Masters"
