Who is Coach K?
Kevan Moezzi started swimming competitively
in 1986 at the age of 5 in Nevada. Under the guidance of collegiate
level coaches he quickly excelled and in 1991 was recognized nationally
for his swimming technique of the butterfly, backstroke, breastroke,
and freestyle. With qualifying times that ranked him among
the quickest in the West Coast, he competed in the Junior Olympics
at the age of 12 and continued as a state champion-level swimmer
while in high school.
...but this is not what made Coach K fall
in love with the sport.
“My swim training allowed me to participate
in other sports without tiring…
in cross-country running,
cycling, and wrestling I was simply able to outlast
my competition. It
was a great foundation for me to build from. Unlike contact
sports, I can participate and enjoy these activities throughout my
life. –Oh, and parents, another positive side affect...
studies show that swimmers statistically prove themselves to be academic
scholars. What a bonus!”
At the age of 16, Kevan received his mandatory lifesaving
certifications and started his Lifeguarding career with the YMCA
as well as a number of private pools. It was at this time that
one mother approached him and wanted her 3 year old daughter to learn
how to swim. To
the mother’s (and Kevan’s) amazement, the little girl
who was afraid to get in the water at first, was swimming
20-foot distances after two lessons. Not only that, but she
would laugh and laugh at everything he said. Apparently, kids
love Coach K!
In 2004, Kevan was featured on the reality
television show “Amish in the City”. Here he demonstrated
his instructional abilities and taught a young adult how to swim
in front of the entire nation.
Today, Kevan Moezzi is a trainer at 24 Hour Fitness,
an instructor for The Swim Planet, still competes in triathlons,
participates in a running club in Southern California, and surfs
whenever he gets the chance.
