Ashley Lysaught Coach

Ashley was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas.  She had a love for water from the very beginning.  She began swimming at the age of 4 and shortly joined a swim team after that.  Her coaches called her a "fish" because they could never get her head out of the water long enough to tell her what the workout was.  From the ages of 4-18 she was on many different swim teams.  From middle school to high school she swam for a club team.  Along with swimming, she played basketball and volleybal, but swimming was her favorite.  She brings experience in the sport and a passion to teach all ages!
