Hey Stingrays!
I am so excited to be back for another year on the coaching team. Making this my 6th year coaching with you all! For those of you who may not know who I am, I am Kylie Davis! A swimmer turned swim coach. I have been on this team for 16 years and would not have wanted it any other way. This team has become my second family. All I can now hope is that I create the same safe space for all of you. Outside of my 24/7 pool life, I enjoy the gym, painting/drawing, playing the guitar, and going on adventures. I am also a student pursuing my last few years of college. Going into Child and Youth Care. 
I am so pumped to come back this season, hopefully full on too! I can’t wait to see all of your faces on the pool deck and to create some awesome connections and memories!  See you all soon.
