Meet our coaches

Head Coaches Kelsey Carnes & Hope Christy

Hi my name is Kelsey Carnes, and I will be one of the swim coaches for Devon this summer! I am going to be a sophomore at Purdue University. I have been swimming since I was 12, and I first started out as a Seahorse at Devon. I went on to swim all four years for Cathedral High School. I cannot wait to coach this summer, and I hope that the kids fall in love with swimming like I did when I began swimming at Devon. I cannot wait to meet the swimmers and bring out their best swimming skills!

My name is Hope Christy, and I’ve been a member of Devon Country Club for as long as I can remember. Currently, I am a junior working towards a bachelor’s degree in biology at Miami University. With this degree I hope to be accepted into veterinary school to become a small animal veterinarian. I am also a varsity swimmer on Miami University’s swimming and diving team. I am extremely excited to be coaching the Devon Seahorses this year alongside my friend, Kelsey Carnes.

 

Preschool Swim Lessons – 6:30-7 p.m. Mondays & Wednesdays June 3-June 26

Ages: 3 Yrs. to 5 Yrs.

Swimming builds self-esteem when a child performs a skill that was once impossible to them! Devon Preschool swim lessons are designed for children 3 years to 5 years and will concentrate on becoming more comfortable in the water and strengthen students’ ability to perform skills independently. Skills taught at this level will include proper front and back floating, kicking, gliding, treading water and successfully performing front crawl. Skills are age appropriate and will prepare the child for success in youth level classes. Children must be able to take instruction without parental supervision.

$75 for 6 classes (want to leave last week open for weather makeups)

Youth Swim Lessons – 7:15-7:45 p.m. Mondays & Wednesdays June 3-June 26

Ages: 5 Yrs. to 7 Yrs. (This class can be discussed if younger kids are ready for it!)

Children who know how to swim not only can save themselves when in water, but are far more equipped to recognize the dangers of water. Devon Youth swim lessons are designed for children 5 and over and will cover a broad range of core swimming skills helping students become proficient in the four basic strokes of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly as well as basic water safety. Students will move through each level at their own pace while building endurance in the water and working on stroke perfection and technique. Children should be ready for stroke development and be able to sit through a 45 minute class.
