SWIM TEAM COACHING STAFF

Head Coach:

Coach Caitlin is excited to return for her seventh year at Forest Hill! This will be her second year as Head Coach! Caitlin grew up swimming on the Columbia Association Aquatics (CAA) swim team. Her love of swimming started on the Harper’s Choice Challenge summer team (in the Columbia Neighborhood Swim League, CNSL) when she was six. She swam competitively through high school and also swam at Salisbury University. After college she started coaching on CNSL for 5 years, until she moved to the Frogs in 2010! During the school year, she is a professional school counselor for the Baltimore County Public School System. She also coaches year round for CAA; currently helping new year-round swimmers ages 8-10 become more competitive. Her coaching philosophy is to help create well balanced swimmers by improving technique, increasing endurance and engaging in good sportsmanship and fun! She will be bringing her 10 years of coaching experience with her this summer to the frogs! “I am excited to see our returning frogs and meet our new faces, too! Get ready for a fun summer!”

Assistant Coaches:

Melissa Ivins

Hi! I’m Coach Melissa and I’m so excited to start my first season with Forest Hill! I grew up on Long Island where I started swimming competitively at age seven with the Three Village Swim Club. I swam throughout high school, and then participated in club swimming at SUNY Cortland. In addition to swimming I taught swim lessons and was a lifeguard. I coach year round for CAA working with the Fitness group, helping swimmers become more comfortable swimming, competing and developing a passion for a lifelong sport. During the year I teach middle school Health and Physical Education here in Howard County. Swimming taught me so many valuable lessons growing up, such as time management, taking responsibility, hard work, commitment and the importance of working as a team. I hope that through coaching I am able to help my swimmers learn some of these same lessons and develop a love and passion for the sport that still means so much to me.
