Gracyn Pires Assistant Swim Coach

My name is Gracyn Pires. I grew up in Charlotte NC and started swimming at 5-years old. I swam year-round at SwimMAC Carolinas, and I am a rising sophomore swimming at Birmingham Southern College in Birmingham, Alabama.

Not only was I member of the Blakeney Lionfish summer swim team at Blakeney Racquet & Swim Club for 13 years, I was also a summer league coach and gave private swim lessons the past several seasons. I love kids, and I enjoy teaching the fundamentals of swimming, how to compete, and giving back to the sport that has given so much to me.
