Welcome, Coach Maggie Tracy!
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new coach, Maggie Tracy! Maggie will be assisting all of our age group practice groups throughout the summer.

Growing up in Westchester, Maggie swam for both Gael Aquatics and Badger Swim Club. She helped lead The Ursuline School to five Section 1 Championships and a five-year undefeated streak. She was an All-American and ranked third in the State of New York in the 50 freestyle.

She went on to swim for four years at the University of Delaware where she graduated with a B.A. in English and a minor in journalism. During her collegiate career, Maggie specialized in sprint freestyle, setting school records in the 200 and 400 freestyle relays. 

Maggie began her coaching career in college and went on to become the assistant at Gael Aquatics in New Rochelle, NY. Since 2020, she has been coaching and working in aquatics at Convent of the Sacred Heart school.

Maggie's philosophy is to first and foremost enjoy the sport of swimming and what it has to offer. She believes that being a part of a positive and supportive team is highly beneficial for a child's personal growth and development.
