Tammy Choy | Swim Coach

With over 12 years of swim coaching experience, Tammy has a passion for working with individuals from all swimming levels. She started competitive swimming at a young age of five and went on competing at the Division I collegiate level at Loyola Marymount University while also playing water polo for 2 years. Upon graduating, she developed the passion for coaching and sharing her knowledge of the sport by head coaching Mills High School and age-group coaching at Burlingame Aquatics Club.


As she put more focus on her professional career, she started working for FINIS Inc. as a Marketing Events Coordinator where her exposure and involvement in the triathlon community began. Since then she has had many opportunities to work with various triathlon teams and athletes through running specialized pool and open water clinics. She is currently a master’s swim coach and the tri swim coach at The Bay Club San Francisco. Her main focus as a coach is instilling the correct basics and technique to produce the most effective and efficient swimming for every individual athlete.
