Our Coaches

Head Coach Traci McNeil

Head Coach Traci McNeil has spent her lifetime engaged in swimming as both sport and recreation. Her life prior to a successful English Channel Crossing in 1994 was spent swimming competitively at prominent programs throughout the country. From Pine Crest Prep School in Florida to Mercersburg Academy in Pennsylvania, her exposure to elite coaches and her hard work afforded her collegiate level swimming at American University, Washington D.C. Her reprieve from the black line on the bottom of the pool was found at a renowned open water swimming camp in Northern Canada. It was there that the ‘bug’ for open water swimming took hold as she ventured daily into the cold, dark, and vast space of the Ontario, Canada lake systems.

Today Coach Traci works with all abilities and age groups from ‘learn-to-swim’ to elite tri-athletes. Across the spectrum, athletes and recreational swimmers benefit from her knowledge, experience, and passion for improvement centered, focused swimming. She carefully assesses the areas of needed improvement and develops an instruction plan that is in alignment with her clients’ specific goals. Beyond developing efficient stroke mechanics, Coach Traci strives to foster an internal experience that awakens a joy for swimming as a sustainable and life-long journey!
