Kale Kirchner Head Coach

I started swimming when I was 3 years old, being taught by my dad who was the head coach at the University of Arkansas at the time. I swam for The Woodlands High School in Houston, TX where we won the 2001 State Championship. I also played 4 years of Water Polo in high school and made the All-State team in 2002, my senior year.

After high school I attended Texas A&M and played water polo. During college I coached for The Woodlands Marlins summer league team and The Woodlands Waves summer team.

After college I became the interim women's Water Polo coach at Baylor for 1 year and then coached the Klein Oak US club team in Houston, TX

Since then my wife Jennifer and I have two boys, Evan and Beckett, and love living in St. Louis. 

This will be my second summer season going into my 3rd full season. We have accomplished things that I thought would have taken longer, but our hard work and our commitment to excellence has accelerated our goals.
