If you'd like to participate let me know and I will add your name to the list! Keep track of your workouts, take some cool pics and vids of you being MAXXED and send them to me so we can share! I'll post a master list on the MTYS website and keep it updated every few days with y'alls numbers!

  • Contact Coach Kelsey at or send a DM on instagram to @kelseykelsey7 including your swimmers name, your address, if there is a preferred time of day to visit, and if there is a preferred coach you want to see! 
  • Visits will last about 10-20 mins, your coach will remain in their car, and keep a safe physical distance from you and your swimmer while they visit and talk to you and your swimmer! 
  • Visits will begin this week and we will continue visiting as long as the swimmers want to see us. 
  • Don't forget to let us know if it's a special visit! Birthdays, lost a tooth, rode a bike, anything you are celebrating we want to celebrate too!! The best part of a coaches' job is hearing all the exciting things the kids are doing at home and school. Well, things look a little different right now but the exciting things are still happening, and we still want to celebrate with you all!
