Give a warm welcome to our new head coach Kelley McCallum!
Kelley McCallum is coming from the University of Miami where she completed two seasons as an assistant coach with the Swimming & Diving Team. A former national champion with the Georgia Bulldogs, McCallum also spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons as assistant coach with Colorado State.
During the 2011-12 season, her first with the Rams, McCallum helped the team break four school records and a program-record five NCAA “B” cut times. The Rams posted nearly 90-percent lifetime bests in the pool, and had 11 new additions to the all-time top-five performers list. Seven athletes were recognized as Mountain West All-Conference selections in nine events during her first campaign.
McCallum was the masters swim coach at the University of Georgia during the 2007-08 seasons. The Atlanta, Ga. , native, who earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Child and Family Development from the University of Georgia (2007), also spent time coaching at the youth level - first as the Atlanta Athletic Club assistant swim coach in 2008 then as the head Riverwood High School coach from 2009-10. She also spent a year and a half with a Nike team dealer being a liaison for various levels of swim programs.
McCallum swam four years for the Bulldogs for four years (2003-07), finishing her career at the SEC Championships in 2007. McCallum helped the Bulldogs earn both the 2005 National Championship and the 2006 SEC Title.
Matt grew up swimming for Covington Swim Team in Los Altos. In high school his interests shifted to water polo; playing for Archbishop Mitty during our school season and for West Valley's club team the remainder of the year. College saw him return to his swimming roots and race the 200 Fly and 400 I.M. for De Anza College. While studying at De Anza he took a coaching position at SCRA, where he worked with PASA swimmers for 8 years. In 2011 he began training with Stanford Masters Swimming, where he met Tim Edmonds, who ultimately introduced him to the lovely Eichler community! Outside of the pool he fabricates custom components in his dad's machine shop, develop electronics for autonomous aircraft, and race motorcycles.
