Felixa Boutwell

Coach

Coach Felixa, originally from DC, has been coaching since 2006 and joined TYDE in 2012.  She finds joy in seeing kids gain confidence in themselves and their abilities in and out of the water.  She’s been around long enough to see swimming grow from a summertime splash activity to a competitive sport in the Kernersville area. 

Felixa is a graduate of UNC-G and spent 15 years in corporate communications and public relations with the Winston-Salem-based direct marketing division of a Fortune 50 company.  Her swim career began with swim lesson at the DC Y when she was 7 supplemented with summer swim at Congressional Country Club.  She returned to summer league when her children were young, first as swim team manager and then assistant coach, eventually becoming the coach at Sedge Garden Swim and Racquet Club.  She partnered with the Kernersville Y to develop the Kernersville RipTYDE team in 2010. 

Felixa also coaches swim team at East Forsyth High School and has been involved in numerous volunteer activities including: USA Swimming and YMCA Swimming as a Level II certified stroke and turn official, Special Olympics, PTA, UMC, and the boards of numerous arts and humanities organizations in the Triad including YMCA Camp Hanes.
