Meet Your Coaches

Haley Hopkins

Haley Hopkins 
Head Coach

Haley's experience comes from teaching swim lessons and coaching various levels of swimmers.

"I believe the most important part of helping a swimmer be the best they can be is to correct their strokes and mistakes - each day, every practice, every event." 

She also believes that constructive feedback through thoughtful conversation can help swimmers reach their individual goals. Working hard together, this can be accomplished by focusing on:​

  • Stroke and technique corrections
  • Fluidity between lanes, coaches, and workouts
  • Offering more opportunities for our swimmers to be the best

Yasuko Conyer
Aquatics Director

 

Yasuko grew up in Japan where she was a competitive swimmer for 16 years, swim instructor, head swim coach, water aerobics instructor for 11 years, and a SCUBA instructor for 4 years before moving to Washington. In 2014, after 10 years as a member here at the Lakewood Y, she was happy to be given the opportunity to get back into the water as a swim instructor and lifeguard. A couple years later, she was promoted to Aquatics Coordinator, and has recently accepted the position as Aquatics Director. Yasuko is always excited to connect with members in a bigger capacity, be more involved in the Annual Campaign, and share her passion for aquatics with other staff.
