Robert Jenkyns Head Coach/CEO

Head Coach/CEO

Coach Bob is the Head Coach and CEO of the Cheyenne Mountain Aquatics Swim Team. Bob has been involved in swimming since 1971 with the last 38 years as a coach. He has coached at the club and high school level his entire career. His accomplishments are numerous and can be found in his coaching biography

Bob is passionate about the swimmers that he works with and works hard to develop outstanding character traits while making the sport of swimming fun for every one of them. His greatest memories are of those "firsts" for each of his swimmers. Making a championship cut for the first time, swimming a legal 200 Fly or 400 IM for the first time, or simply getting their first award are just some of the great memories that he is most proud of.

Bob shares his love for the sport of swimming with his loving wife Kristen, two daughters, two sons, three grandchildren (soon to be four), as well as two horses, two cats and a guinea pig. In his spare time, Bob loves to vacation by cruising, watching football and living on island time.

Kristen Jenkyns Head Age Group Coach

Head Age Group Coach/ Lead Junior & Age Group Gold Coach

Coach Kristen's lifelong passion for the sport of swimming began at the age of 7, when she joined her local summer league swim team.  Year round club swimming quickly followed and by the age of 12 she was ranked in the top 16 in the nation in her age group.  In high school, she swam varsity and competed at the state meet all four years, finishing in the top 8 multiple times in breaststroke and sprint freestyle events.  She began her coaching career in 1987, while in college at Western Washington University, as the head coach for the local high school team.  In her first year there, she led the team to a top five state finish for the first time in the school’s history.

After a few years break to focus on raising her young children, Coach K has been coaching age group and/or high school swimming continuously since 2002.

Needless to say, many of their swimmers have gone on to swim in college. In addition to swim coaching, Kristen’s full-time job from 2006-2015 was running her home daycare, K’s Playce Family Childcare. 

In March 2015, Coach K and Coach Bob moved from Wisconsin to Colorado Springs and began coaching for CMA Swim Team.  As Head Age Group Coach and the lead coach for our Junior and Age Group Gold Groups, Kristen has led our team and swimmers to many successes, including coaching several state champions and a Western Zone Champion.  She was asked to be a staff coach for Team Colorado at the 2017 Western Zone Championships and has been nominated Colorado Age Group Coach of the Year for 2018.

Kristen and her husband, Coach Bob, have four young adult children:  Danielle, Melanie, Chris, and Kyle, who all grew up swimming.  Their oldest daughter and son swam in college on NCAA Division I swimming scholarships and completed their collegiate swimming careers as captains of their respective teams.  The family also includes son-in-laws Falco (Danielle's husband) and Jason (Melanie's husband), two sweet little grandsons - Fynn and Rhett, and adorable new granddaughter - Sloane. They also have two cats - Romeo and Asher, two guinea pigs - Snickers and Mouse, and two horses - Chance and Madison.  Kristen’s lifelong passions are her family, competitive swimming, working with young children, and horse training/showing/trail riding!
