Coach Katherine Schlimm











Katherine Schlimm - Head Coach 

Kathy grew up in Alexandria, Virginia and graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1987 and was an All-American NCAA Division II Swimmer in 200 and 400 IM. Serving in the Army for 12 years, she lived all over the world before she and her husband, Paul, decided to raise their three girls in the Mid-West. She established and head coached the Platte County Otters for 8 years and coached the Platte County High School women for two years. 

Kathy has a unique approach to coaching. Technique is very important to her, as well as the character development of each swimmer. She fondly remembers her childhood summers spent on her team learning to love and master the sport, and making lifelong friends. During the off season she runs a small business.
