Hello Willows Swim Team!My name is Kelly Carella and I am looking forward to coming back to the Willows Swim Team as one of your coaches this year! My husband, Mike, and I live in East Windsor with our two kids, Brayden (9) and McKenzie (7).Although the 2019 season was the first swim season for Brayden and McKenzie, I am no stranger to South Brunswick, the team, or coaching! As a child I grew up LIVING at the Willows Swim Club! Starting at the age of 8, I was a member of the team every summer until I graduated from Rutgers Prep (where I also swam) in 2000. After graduation I became an Assistant Coach, and later Head Coach, of the Willows Swim Team while I attended Fairleigh Dickinson University. There I studied Elementary Education and Psychology. While at FDU I also swam all 4 years and was the Assistant Coach during my Graduate year.
From 2005 - 2011 I was a Kindergarten teacher at Brunswick Acres School--a job I LOVED!! Helping young children learn and grow academically, emotionally, and socially was a passion of mine. Once I had a couple years of teaching experience under my belt, I signed on to become an Assistant Coach of the Notre Dame HS Swim Team from 2008 - 2011.I am excited to help your children reach their goals, form a love of swimming, bond with their teammates, create new friendships and, of course, HAVE FUN! I can’t wait to get to know all of you, so please reach out whenever you need to! Together, I am confident we are going to have an awesome Summer Swim Season! Go Willows!
Hi I’m Libby. I’ve been a competitive swimmer since I was 5 years old, and currently I am a member of the Rutgers women’s rowing team. I’m ready for a great summer swim season. In addition to swimming for the Willows Swim team, I have competed in high school and club swim. I enjoy helping younger swimmers not only reach their goals in swimming but learning good sportsmanship and having a good time while being part of a team. Swimming has always been a big part of my life and I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for the sport with the team this summer.
Hi guys my name is Will Hoffman, and as many of you may know, I was a former swimmer here on the Willows Wave for around 8-9 years! I currently go to school at Ohio University where I double major in Political Science and Sociology. I used to swim for the South Brunswick High School swim team as well as PTAC. I’m super excited to help everyone achieve their swimming goals this summer and to have a great season! Can’t wait to see everyone back in action!
