Our returning coaches:
Team Director, Justin Mallette:
While beginning my diving career in Summer league and throughout high school and college, I bring over 11 years of coaching experience to Charlotte Swim and Racquet Club. I have experience coaching numerous summer teams, high schools, and club teams, providing me the opportunity to work with novices all the way through national champions.
Away from the pool, I am a general dentist and practice in Harrisburg. My wife, Lauren, and I have a one year old, Oliver, who keeps us quite busy, but I am excited for another Summer with your kids. I look forward to growing this diving team together.
I am 19 years old. I am a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and am majoring in Elementary Education. I was the Dive Captain at South Meck High School my senior year, along with being Conference Champion. I dove all four years at South Meck and finished in the top ten at States twice. This will be my second year with CSRC and I am super excited to see what the season has in store!
I started diving when I was in middle school and have dove for Myers Park High School, earning a varsity letter all four years, receiving MVP two years, and attending state championship three years. I was team captain and 14th in the state at NC high school championship this year. I have frequented Summer All Stars and won the 15-18 division in All Stars last year. I will graduate from Myers Park this year and am considering diving D3 or club while in college. I loved learning to dive at CSRC and am grateful to all my coaches in Summer league and high school.
I am an experienced diver diving throughout middle school and part of high school. I have an extensive background in child care and education. I pride myself in my patience and enthusiasm, and I absolutely love coaching all of our CSRC divers. Teaching them what I know and encouraging them to (safely) jump higher and work harder than they believed they could is what I love about the job. Every single team member is my favorite, and I look forward to coaching them again this summer!
New to our coaching family:
I have been diving for almost 5 years and have experience on both one and three meter springboards, as well as platform. I have been on both the Summer league dive team with CSRC and year-round dive team with HFFA. Currently, I am diving for Myers Park High School, attending States this year and captaining next year. I love to dive and am excited about this upcoming Summer season!
Hannah Cornwall and Lee Walker:
Hannah is a former CSRC swimmer and current diver. Lee is a current swimmer and diver for CSRC. Both dive for Myers Park High School and are pursuing year round dive with HFFA. Both also made it to regional finals this year and received their first Varsity letters as freshmen.
