Caitlyn LaPell
Email - [email protected]
Assistant Coach, Klein High School

Coach Caitlyn is beginning her first year with PACK as a swim coach. In 2015 she began competitively swimming for PACK after attending her cousin's swim meet. From that point on her love for swimming grew exponentially over the next 4 years under a few of her favorite coaches such as Landen Walin and Kimberlee Slaughter. At the age of 12, the impact her favorite coach had on her life made her realize that she wanted to come back and coach when she was older, make a difference for the next swimmers to come, and most of all create a positive swimming atmosphere for her athletes. Making her way back into the swimming world, she became a lifeguard and coached The Woodlands Marlins summer league team. Caitlyn was born and raised in the Houston area and has been homeschooled most of her life. Currently she is finishing up her last year of high school and looking at furthering her coaching career and a position in ministry. Outside of work, she loves going to church, bowling, swimming and taking her dog Cooper out to coffee shops. Caitlyn is more than excited to coach for the seasons to come and is looking forward to this new chapter in her life.
