Coach Kyle joined the Stingrays as Head Coach in October, 2015, after being recruited by Coach Ali. Prior to the Stingrays, Kyle served as Head Age Group Coach for Tucson Ford Dealers Aquatics, where he helped develop AZ AG & Senior State Qualifers, State Champions, Far Western Qualifiers and Champions, 14 & Under Senior Sectional Qualifers, National Top-10 Swimmers, and AZ State Recordholders. Under his guidance, the Age Group program consistently finished in the top 5 in the AZ Age Group State Championships, with a 3rd place team finish in 2014 – the highest ever for the current Ford Aquatics Program.

Most recently, Kyle has been the Head Coach of the St Augustine Catholic HS Swim Team in Tucson. Before coaching at Ford Aquatics, Kyle was the Head Coach of the Orcas SAAA Team from 2009-2011. In 2010, his team won the CDO League Title.

Kyle believes that excellence precedes success. His goal is to help every swimmer to reach their full potential in the sport of swimming, and to enjoy their journey and successes along the way. He envisions a bright future where the Sahuarita Stingrays continue their long tradition of swimming success, and consistently achieve at the highest level in Local, State, National and International competitions!

At home, Kyle and his wife, Michelle have a fun-loving 1-year old son, Enzo. Michelle is also a professional swimming coach, turned full-time mother. They love going on trips, seeing the world together and spending time at home with their large extended family in Tucson!
