Tori Bailey : Head Coach 

[email protected]

Tori is a 2021 graduate from the University of Sioux Falls in Sioux Falls, SD. While at USF completing her bachelors degree in Computer Information Systems and Business, she swam all 4 years. 

Prior to college, Tori grew up here in Casper and graduated from Kelly Walsh in 2017. She also swam for 4 years at KW, and was a state qualifier for 3 of those years. During her time on the KW swim team, she was a 2016 confrence title holder in the 100 breaststroke, and also held titles and records as a part of relays throughout the years. 

Tori swam for Casper Swim Club starting in 2010 through 2017, but didn’t start seriously competing and traveling around until she thought “maybe I want to swim in college”, her sophomore year of high school. 

Her time on CASC, KW Swim Team, and USF Swim Team have allowed her to meet a lot of different coaches and teams throughout Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota and of course, Wyoming. While this is the first time she has coached in a while, she has also coached for CASC before under Nick Hopson in years past. Along with coaching, Tori has also helped with middle school swimming, Red Cross lessons, and has been apart of the staff for SwimAmerica for about 8 years. 

Tori is very excited to come back to our swim club and help us grow!

This led to him swimming at the collegiate level at UNLV where he was all-conference in the backstroke events.
