Cheri Lynn Krawczyk
My name is Cheri Krawczyk and I am pleased to be the Aquatics Director at the Tri-Cities Family YMCA. I have been an avid swimmer since childhood; competing year round on swim teams. Was a four year varsity swimmer on Navarre high school and swam for University of West Florida College. Competed in 400 yard relay, 100 & 200 IM, 100 & 200 breast stroke. My career with the Y has spanned 14 years. I started with the Y in Fort Walton and Pensacola, Florida as a lifeguard and swim instructor, before moving into Aquatics Coordinator and then transiting into Aquatics Director. It was there that I started coaching for the Y-swim as well as the Fort Walton high school. When I transferred to the New Orleans YMCA, I was the Regional Aquatics Director over seven Y locations. While I was Director at the New Orleans Association, I started the first Y-USA league as well as USA swim team. I have been a USA swimming coach since 2009. In my time at the Fort Lauderdale YMCA Association, I was part of the Weston rec swim team, USA league and high school swimming clinics. When I am not at work you can find me swimming, walking my husky, fishing, in the gym or just being active. I am always up for a new adventure and am looking forward to growing the aquatics programs along with moving the mission of the YMCA forward!
