Kate Wells Head Coach

Hi! My name is Kate Wells and I am a junior at Baldwin Wallace University where I am studying Exercise Science and Biology. I have been swimming for fourteen years and have been a Barracuda for all of those years. It is an honor to coach the team that taught me how to swim all those years ago. I love being able to stand where my first coaches once stood and watch all the kids start to develop a passion for the sport in the same place I did. Roll Barracudas!

Maddie Mahoney Coach

Hi, my name is Maddie Mahoney. I am 18 years old and will be attending Youngstown State University, where I will swim, in the fall. I have been swimming on the Valley Brook Swim Team since I was four years old. I also swim for North Hills Aquatics and have been there since I was eight years old. I think coaching would give me an amazing opportunity to learn how to work with kids and be able to talk at their level. Considering I want to be an early education teacher, this is a very good chance for me to learn a little more about young children! My favorite thing about swimming is the dedication and time it takes. Swimming is a very driven sport and I love the competitiveness of it as well. Valley Brook Swim Team is an amazing way to get your kids into swimming. It’s not extremely competitive, you’re outside all the time, and it’s a very welcoming environment. I’m so excited to have this opportunity and being able to do something I love!!
