Haley is Certified PCA Double Goal Coach

I am a professional triathlete and former NCAA Division I swimmer at the University of Georgia. I was a member of the Bulldogs' 2005 NCAA Championship Team and finished ninth in the 200 backstroke at the 2004 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials. After college I continued swimming recreationally while pursuing a career in public accounting. In 2013 I left my accounting position to race triathlon professionally and ended the year leading the professional women's field out of the water at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. I'm happy to be back in Bozeman to continue my triathlon training and coach the Barracudas, the same team I started my swimming career with in the early 1990s.

Positive Coaching Alliance Double Goal Certified Coach, 2016

I've been a coach with the Bozeman Barracudas since the Fall of 2016. I was on my high school swim team for four years and went on to be the team leader my senior year. While on the team during high school I participated in many IM and sprint events. Now that I'm a coach for the Barracudas I hope to pass on the knowledge I learned from those years to the kids on the team so that they can gain the ability to swim confidently in whatever event they want.
