2017 Mutant Coaches

 Head Coach Lilly

Lilly is so excited to be head coach this summer. This is her third year coaching and she is looking forward to a great season. She has been swimming for the Mutants for as long as she can remember. She will be a sophomore at Michigan State University next fall (go green). A few of her favorite things include The Office, country music, and vacations up north.

Coach Claire


This is Coach Claire’s third year as a Mutant coach.  Claire was a Mutant herself from age 6 to 16 and spent all summer at the park growing up.  She is a 2015 graduate of Grosse Pointe South High School and will be a junior at Central Michigan University in the fall, with a major in Child Psychology. Claire loves the beach at Torch Lake, a good book, her dog Sally, bagels from Einstein’s and spending her summer with the Mutants at the park in the sunshine.

Coach Daniel

This is Daniel’s 11th year swimming for the Mutants.  He has long aspired to be a coach, mainly from witnessing his awesome coaches at the Park. Daniel has “swam” for the Grosse Pointe South Men’s Swim team the past three years.  He is heavily involved in South’s Student Association and is an active member of the Michigan Association of Student Councils/ Michigan Association of Honor Societies. He is also the President of the Mock Trial Club at South and leads them to county trial victories.  Daniel is looking forward to coaching swimmers of all ages and is ready for the Park to “bring home” the hardware at home.

Coach Rozzie
This is Rozzie's second year coaching for the Mutants. She's been swimming on Mutants since she was six and finished her swim career last summer. She graduated from Grosse Pointe South in June and will be attending the University of Michigan, where she plans to study aerospace engineering. When she's not at the pool, Rozzie enjoys sleeping, watching The Office on Netflix, and hanging out with her three cats. 

Coach Kathleen

Kathleen joins the Mutant coaching staff for the first time this summer.  Kathleen has been a Mutant since the age of 6.  At age 8, Kathleen joined the Gators and has been swimming ever since.  Kathleen will be a co-captain this fall on the Blue Devils.  Kathleen has been a coach for the Special Olympics for the past 4 years.  When Kathleen isn't in the pool, she enjoys, running, reading and spending time with family and friends, (which includes her 9 cats).  Although this is her last year swimming as a Mutant, Kathleen is very excited to become a coach.  Kathleen can't wait to share her love of swimming with all the Mutants.
