Coach Marcy Kirk

Welcome to Brahma Nation! 

I graduated with my BA from Texas Tech University (2000) and my MA from Wheaton College, IL (2005) and worked the better part of the first 14 years of my career as a USA Swimming Club coach and am currently an ASCA (American Swim Coaches Association) Level 3 certified coach; a distinction earned by the top 15% of coaches in the country.  My club coaching started in the suburbs of Chicago while in grad school and continued here in San Antonio with Alamo Area Aquatics Association as the Head Age Group Coach for the NS Block location, and then finished in the Houston area with First Colony Swim Team as the Lead Site Coordinator for one of their training sites; both teams are ranked Top 25 teams in the country. In my 7 years at MAC, we have had a UIL State Qualifier (2 years), Regional Medalists (Top 3), District Champions & Medalists, and Team Record Breakers!

In 2012, I began to shift my career to education, and am now in my 8th year as a teacher.  I have taught in the Special Education department as well as Speech, and Social Studies (World History/World Geography). I continue to coach swimming and am the Head Coach of the Boys/Girls Swim & Dive team at MAC and work in the summers giving swim lessons to members in the community. Swimmers I have coached through my years have ranged from beginners to Olympic Trials Qualifiers, and many have gone on to swim at universities all over the country. Athletes who I have had the privilege of coaching have set USA National Record (Girls 200 Free Relay 2010), Texas State Age Group (TAGS) Records, South Texas LSC Records, AAAA/FCST Team Records, and numerous Top 10 Nationally Ranked Age Group Swimmers.  In addition, while at FCST, I was able to help assist the Head Coach of our National Team by traveling with them to the Olympic Training Center to train for 10 days, where at the time we had over 10 HS Age Olympic Trial Qualifiers, including the current Olympic Gold Medalist, Simone Manuel! 

Coaching HS swimming is not much different than coaching USA club swimming.  I take the same ideas, goals for the team, and workouts and apply them to our program.  We focus on team before self and rise to meet the expectations given to us.  We have a strong tradition of excellence in racing, and work to continue that tradition each year

I am looking forward to another great year at MAC!!
