Mali Jones Loos - Silver & PreComp
I am Miss/Coach Mali (sounds like, Molly) Jones. My coaching career started in 2007 as an assistant, high school, swim coach at a private school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I assisted in coaching all swimmers 8th - 12th grade. In 2011, I received the privilege of teaching Physical Education and Health at a Title 1 high school and became the head coach of their swim program. It was during my years teaching and coaching at this school that I developed a passion for educating and coaching kids. I moved to Dallas in 2018 to continue teaching and coaching and I absolutely love it here. Though my coaching career is mainly swimming, I have also coached soccer,
track, volleyball, tennis, and snowboarding. I am very passionate about helping to further the goals of my students and my athletes, but my number one passion in life is being a good mom to my son and his biggest fan.
As a coach, it is my mission to train my athletes to work hard and persevere with a positive, resilient attitude in and out of the pool; and to instill in them positive self-esteem.
