 I'm Kelly VanderWeele and this will be my 2nd season with the Wave.  I grew up near Erie, PA but have called wherever the Air Force sends us; home. I am the mother of four girls, all swimmers with the Wave.  In addition to coaching, I'm also a leader with an American Heritage Girls Troop.

     I began competitive swimming when I was 8 years old. I went to a practice to keep a friend company and fell in love with the sport.  I swam for the YMCA, Corry Area High School, and four years at Grove City College.  I have a BA in Elementary Ed.  I began teaching swim lessons in my early teens and developed a love for stroke technique through years of attending and working at swim camps. I had exceptional examples in coaches who taught, encouraged, and fueled my desire to coach. 

      My first opportunity to coach age group, was for Chartiers Valley Swim Club in Pittsburgh PA. I was the 10under coach. The Air Force took us to Germany and Alaska where I helped coach the base teams: Eifel Sharks and Elmendorf Penguins. The times in between, I taught lessons whenever I could find a pool. 

       I am very excited to work with the Wave and to have the opportunity to encourage young swimmers to take the sport as far as they can and enjoy it.
