Kevin Storrs - NDAC Head Coach - passed

Annette Mackrel

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kevin Storrs, the founder and Head Coach of Northern Dutchess Aquatic Club. Kevin fought a courageous battle against cancer in the past two years; he passed away peacefully on April 14 surrounded by his family.

Kevin’s life-long passion was coaching athletes and he was never far from a pool deck. In fact, he was still mentoring and coaching young swimmers three weeks ago. He began his coaching career as the Head Coach of the Dutchess Devilfish at the YMCA in Poughkeepsie (1981-1985), moving on to the Marist Swim Club as Age Group Coach and Assistant Senior Coach (1986-1994). 1994 saw the inception of NDAC, which he and a group of local parents founded. As Head Coach he became the driving force behind competitive swimming in the Upper Hudson Valley, his name and NDAC becoming synonymous for quality swimming and coaching, tirelessly promoting the sport in the area and across different leagues.

Kevin was Metropolitan Swimming’s Senior Coach of the Year in 2010. He also coached the Rhinebeck Varsity Swim Teams, both girls and boys. The summers saw him as the Aquatic Director of the Red Hook Rec pool, mentoring, teaching coaching. He shared his love of the sport with his athletes, many of whom went on to become coaches themselves.

Coach Storrs was also an AP History teacher at the Rondout High School, he retired in 2021.

He will be greatly missed.
