The Tampa swimming community has lost one of its greatest coaches. Tbay Coach Kelley Allen passed away over the weekend and leaves a great legacy of great swimmers and positive attitude. He was a good friend of the BSAC/BlueWave staff, some of us who have known him for over 15 years.
Most of you have seen Coach Kelley at swim meets, he was the tall blond coach who was always jumping and yelling at EVERY swimmer he coached. He had one of the best laid back attitudes and was well respected in the swimming community. We will miss him greatly.
We would like to honor his life at the next meet and we are asking for ideas on what we could do to support Tbay Westchase in their loss. If you have any ideas, please let your swimmers coach know.
