Hello, my name is Jackie Casebeer. I am originally from Harleysville, PA. I am a coach for the development team.

I have a long history in the pool! I started swimming competitively at the age of 6, up through my senior year of high school. While in high school, I coached for my hometown swim team, where I worked with younger children and children with special needs. While coaching, I also ran stroke and turn clinics.
