AG1 / AG2 Coach
Kearsten Livingstone began swimming competitively at six years old in Canada. When her family relocated back to her hometown of Santa Clarita, she joined Canyons Aquatic Club from the age of 9 until she attended Cal Berkley in 2010. A highly competitive swimmer, Kearsten held or holds numerous Canyons individual and relay records. An elite competitor, she was a member of Canyons National Team, Southern California Swimming's Zone Team, and Olympic Trial qualifier. Also, she represented Canyons at Junior Nationals, Nationals, US Open, and World Championships Trials.
Kearsten attended Canyon high school, where she set and still holds several school records. While representing Canyon High School, she won several Foothill finals and finished in the top 8 all four years at CIF Championships in both the 100 fly and 100 back. Upon graduation, Kearsten accepted a scholarship to swim for Cal Berkley, where she was part of the team that won two national championship titles in 2011 and 2012 as well as two PAC 12 Championships.
After graduation, Kearsten returned to Santa Clarita, where she is working on her master's degree in Social and Emotional Learning while teaching high school at Opportunities For Learning. In 2018, she returned to the pool, this time as the head coach at West Ranch High School. Under her guidance, the 2018 Wildcats won their first league title in school history and she was selected as Swim Coach of the year by the Daily News. She continues to coach West Ranch in addition to her coaching at Canyons Aquatic.
Kearsten draws upon her years of experience as a competitive swimmer who came up through the age-group ranks to train and compete at the nation's highest levels. Much of what Kearsten brings to the deck are the lessons learned from several of Canyon's successful past coaches as well as four years of training under CAL's Terri Mckeever, one of the most successful college/Olympic coaches in the nation.
Here at Canyons, Kearsten believes all our swimmers have the same unlimited potential and if they dedicate themselves to train hard, she will coach them to draw upon that motivation, help them achieve their goals, and then exceed them.
