Coaching Staff

Kerry O'Brien

Head Coach

Email

Kerry, who is an ASCA Certified Level 5 Masters Coach, has been the head coach of Walnut Creek Masters since 1980. In 1987 he was named United States Masters Swimming (USMS) Coach of the Year and in 1992 he was the Pacific Masters Swimming (PMS) Coach of the Year. Kerry has served as the President of the Masters Aquatic Coaches Association (MACA) and is currently very active in the USMS Mentor Coaching Program, giving clinics in Virginia, Idaho, Washington, Alaska, and in California. In November of 1999 and February of 2000 Kerry was selected to coach the USMS High Altitude Training Camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

Each Spring, since 1988, Kerry has coordinated and coached the Walnut Creek Masters Intensive Training Camp. This camp attracts swimmers of all ability levels and from Masters Teams all over the country.

Kerry himself is an accomplished Butterflier, swimming the 50, 100, and 200 flys. He has even been known to swim on his birthday as many 100’s fly as his age. When he turned 40 he did 40 x 100 fly on 1:30 holding 1:06’s. For this amazing feat he was mentioned in Swim magazine.

Kerry is not only a great swimmer but an inspiration to the 300+ swimmers on his team. He is always there on the deck or in the water offering instruction and enthusiasm. Without Kerry the Walnut Creek Masters would not be what it is today, a successful program for adults who love to swim for fitness and/or to compete at the local and national level. (See Records for list of team accomplishments).

Kerry and his wife both compete in the 45-49 age group and have two children ,Nathan and Lacey, that compete at the summer recreation level. The O’Brien’s also have a dog named Abbey that is quite the dog paddler, and a cat, Porsche, that has yet to compete at any level!
