My name is Ty Spillane and I’d like to welcome you to the West Broadway Swim Team’s 2022 season! I am brand new here and I’d like to introduce myself as a head coach this year. I came from the Chicagoland area to Columbia where I swim and study at the University of Missouri. I love it here, so I am staying this summer! I have competitively swam since I was 10 years old and I have won several State Championships in Illinois and a Junior National Title. I am very excited to bring my experience to this swim club. At Mizzou, I study Finance and Economics. I have also recently competed in the SEC championships in the 100 Breaststroke, 200 Breaststroke, and 100 Butterfly! I grew up in Sugar Grove, Illinois, a small town 45 miles West of Chicago. I attended Marmion Academy and swam for the Academy Bullets Swim Club. In high school I also played Football, and Baseball.

This opportunity is so exciting and I am looking forward to getting to know all of the families of this great organization. I have previously taught swim lessons and occasionally coached my high school JV team. I continue to prioritize positive coaching to establish a successful organization.

Hi, I am Rylee O'Neil and I will be one of the head coaches this year! I just finished my freshman year at Mizzou and am a proud member of the Mizzou swim and dive team. I am from Fort Collins, Colorado where I swam on the Fort Collins Area Swim Team (FAST). I have been competitively swimming for 14 years now and have competed from small state meets all the way up to the Junior National level. At Mizzou, I am currently studying Health Science (Pre-med) and am double minoring in psychology and biology as well as receiving my neuroscience certificate. Some fun facts about me are that I love cats and all animals in general! My favorite color is pink and anything that sparkles. I also want to start an acapella group and skydive one day. Lastly, I am so excited to meet all of you and be one of your coaches this season:)

We would like to take a moment to express several expectations for ourselves:

  • Arrive 15 minutes early to all practices
  • Communicate to all members of WBST efficiently and clearly
  • Provide an adequate opportunity for all athletes to succeed
  • Spread positivity and maintain respect throughout all components of our organization

I am very open-minded heading into this season, though I have 2 immediate goals for our team:

  • Have Fun
  • Race Hard

When we do these things, we will be successful!

We intend to hold our first swim practice on May 30. This practice will be the foundation of a great season, so we hope to see you there! At this practice, we will get to know each other, lay some ground rules, and have some fun!
