Janet Taylor is the head coach for the high school and junior high swim programs. She believes that many life skills can be learned through swimming, such as goal-setting, developing a plan of action to reach those goals, time management skills, and a strong work ethic. She understands how important relationships are in swimming, and how these friendships tend to last a lifetime. Most of all, Janet believes in Colossians 3:17 and wants to instill this verse into her swimmers, ”whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Janet graduated from TCU and was a three sport letterman in swimming, gymnastics, and golf. After graduation, she was head women’s swim coach at TCU for several years. She is in her 25th year of coaching at Grace and has led the Cougar swimmers to six state championships. Over the past 45 years of coaching, Janet has coached swimmers to all levels of achievement, from learning to swim to Olympic Trial qualifiers.
