Swimming 2020

SWIM TEAM 2020

Thank you so much for your patience while we sorted out our schedule and plans for this years swim “quaran”team. We are so excited to be able to provide our members with a team this summer, as we know that other programs are not opening. Please understand that this will not be a ‘normal’ season, but it will definitely be a FUN season! We welcome back Kelsey Carnes and Hope Christy as our coaches this year. Robbie Sheffield and Anna Charbonneau will be coaching our Sea Colts (6 and unders).

This season we will combine some virtual meets with Chapel Glen pool, have some Fast Friday time trials, and some intrasquad meets. As of now we are also planning on one LIVE meet against Chapel Glen at the end of July!! More details to follow.

Parents, all of these “meets” will happen at our own Devon pool, so there will be no need to drive across town! All meets will begin at 6:30, with warm-ups beginning at 6:00. These fun, fast meets will require parent volunteers. Look for a signup before each meet. As always, please sign the book at the guard desk if your child will not be able to attend one of these meets.

We will not have a formal swim team sign up meeting, but more of an Open House to answer all of your burning questions. Please join us on Wednesday, June 10th from 6-8 pm for team sign ups.

Attached you will find the registration form and the waiver, as well as our schedule. Please feel free to print it out and send it to me ahead of time, or bring it with you on the 10th.

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 Junior 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 Senior 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.
