 Kelly Blacker

Kelly will be entering her 19th year on the Willowbrook Swim and Dive Team in 2021. With three children of her own who have all been members of the Willowbrook Swim and Diving Team, Kelly is a fixture at the pool. When she is not coaching, she is teaching children, especially young ones, how to swim. Her patience and love of teaching is evident to swimmers of all ages.

Kelly is a certified water safety instructor (WSI), has received accreditation with the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) and has her USA Swim Official certification.  She has served as the Vice President, is currently the Treasurer, and has been on the Board of Directors of  Willowbrook for 19 years.  Kelly is also a USA Swimming Age Group coach during the winter months for the Saw Mill Club, Storm Aquatics in Mount Kisco, and is a professor of Accounting at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry.  Previously she coached for the Boys and Girls Club, Marlins in Mount Kisco.

Kelly is dedicated to swimmers of all levels and abilities. She believes that swimming is an important skill for children and adults of all ages, and that it is never too late to learn. Regardless of whether your child is a novice or hopes to swim at the highest level, Kelly will provide the support and guidance that they need to succeed and to meet their goals.
