Head Coach: Send coach an email
- Laura Porch
Hello! I'm Coach Laura. I swam competitively for 16 years at several levels. I started in summer swim and had a lot of fun then decided to join my school's team. After doing summer and school swim for a few years, I moved into USA swimming. I swam for Sevier Aquatic Club for most of that time. In high school, I swam unattached for 3 years. All three of those years I went to Sectionals in butterfly and freestyle. The last two of those years I went to Futures for butterfly and freestyle. The last year, I went to Junior Nationals for butterfly, freestyle and the IM. From there I went on to swim at King University for a year and Milligan University for 2 years.
I have been coaching for five years. I am currently the head coach for Knoxville Central High School and Gresham Middle School. I started coaching for them in the fall season of 2018. I started coaching for MAFD in summer of 2019. I started as an assistant coach and then became head coach in summer of 2021.
I am currently doing student teaching with Johnson University, having just graduated in December. I am working towards completing my licensure for K-12 Physical Education. I plan to pursue a master's degree in both teaching and athletic administration.
I love swimming. It's been a large part of my life since I was six years old. I have a passion for making sure kids have the opportunity to learn how to swim and providing them with the space to nurture those skills and succeed.
