Jay Turner, Head Coach Girls Swimming
Coach Jay Turner will enter his third season (2017-2018) as head coach for the women’s swim team at Boulder High School. He began swimming year-round when he was five years old. His personal swimming career highlights include earning High School All-American Consideration and as a Junior National Qualifier. He earned a Division one scholarship to the University of Toledo and maintains multiple all-time top 10 times. After graduating, he became an assistant coach for his alma mater until the men’s team was cut due to budget constraints.
During his time at BHS, he and his staff have coached a diverse group of athletes, ranging from All-American qualifiers and Division one scholarship winners, to summer-club swimmers, to those with virtually no experience. The team’s training philosophies center on USA Swimming’s energy systems, focusing on as many as six different endurance/sprint intensities in the water. Dryland/strength training and yoga/mobility work are also an important part of the team’s training. Culturally, the team strongly believes that if an athlete chooses to buy-in to swimming with, through, and for the team’s success, each individual will maximize the probability of accomplishing their individual goals. Over the past two seasons, approximately 80 percent of the program’s athletes have achieved lifetime best times in each of their races.
Turner owns a financial planning business in Boulder and has served his clients for nearly 15 years. Active in his community, he has previously served on the Avista Hospital Foundation Board, the Louisville Downtown Business Association Board, and various college scholarship committees. Originally from Macon, Georgia, Jay and his wife, Jenae, reside in Gunbarrel. In his free time, he enjoys fly-fishing, golfing, camping, and his two bulldogs, Benson and Harley.
Kyle Bachrodt, Assistant Coach Girls Swimming
Coach Kyle Bachrodt is returning for his second season (2017-2018) as an assistant coach for the women’s swim team at Boulder High School. He grew up in Evergreen, Colorado, where he started swimming year-round for the Evergreen Hurricanes when he was seven years old. He learned a great deal about swimming during his 10 years as a club swimmer and began imparting this knowledge as a certified swim instructor by the age of 15. His swimming career continued as a four-year varsity swimmer at Evergreen High School where he was also a team captain in his final two years. Once in college, he turned his focus toward earning a bachelor’s degree in geology from the University of Colorado at Boulder; however, he still swam competitively for the CU club team as a freshman in 2007. This team would go on to win the national championship that year.
Although his last race was in 2007, Kyle’s dedication to the sport of swimming is still present as a swim coach and instructor. His first opportunity at coaching came in 2008 with his former club team where he specialized as an 8 and under age group coach. In the years since, he has been a men’s high school swim team consultant for Conifer High School, and has been the head coach for the 13-18 age group at the Boulder Country Club since 2010, where he has led swimmers to club records in a multitude of events six out of the last seven years.
Kyle currently works at the Boulder Country Club as the Director of Aquatic Operations. When not by the pool, he spends his time in the mountains skiing, climbing, backpacking, and volunteering for the National Ski Center for the Disabled (NSCD).
