Lisa Gurney Senior Coach

 

Coach Gurney is responsible for coaching high school and college aged swimmers from Lakeview and surrounding districts in a year-round USA club program. 

Coach Gurney was born and raised in Battle Creek and swam for Harper Creek in high school and Lakeview as a club swimmer.  Coach Gurney has been an active coach for over 18 years, coming back to the sport while living in California in the early 2000's.  She started coaching on a small military base in the Mojave Desert. She took her team to the Los Angeles basin often for USA swim meets.

The fall of 2003 found her moving back to Germany for her third time with her family. They were stationed in Heidelberg where there was a job opening for a swim coach.  She was selected for the job with the Heidelberg Sea Lions, part of the European Forces Swim League. The team was similar to a USA team in the aspect of coaching all ages (5-18 years) in one practice (2 hours) in only five lanes!  She learned to be very efficient  in her practices to achieve success. When she took the team over, they were at the bottom of the leaue. Within the four years she led the team, they moved to the top and won the championship meet at the Olympic Pool in Munich. Coach Gurney had swimmers move on to compete for several D1 schools, become high school state champions and achieve success at their new swim teams upon returning to the United States. 

She returned to Michigan in the summer of 2007 and became the club coach at Harper Creek as well as the boys' varsity coach.  The high school team placed in the top ten under her leadership with several all-state relays and individual swims. After five years, she took a few years off from the sport and then returned to the pool deck with Lakeview. With Coach Lott, she was successful in taking teams to state meets and garnering many all-state accolades as well as a third place finish in 2018. 

Coach Gurney is a firm believer in proper technique and great stroke skills. She believes every swimmer has the ability to achieve their goals and looks forward to helping them create the proper strokes to do so.  email: [email protected]
