Courtney McLaurin – Owner/Instructor/Coach. Courtney grew up as a competitive swimmer in Northern Virginia. She competed in all strokes and distances breaking most of her records as a junior swimmer in breaststroke and butterfly.
As Courtney’s life turned to coaching and development, she traveled the world working with age group swimmers from the highly touted Alamo Area Aquatics Club in San Antonio and military families on bases throughout Europe and Asia. She has developed stroke technique training for elite tri-athletes as well as Navy Seals. Her methodologies maximizing their muscle strength and cardiovascular endurance are still mainstays of tri-athletes and Navy swimmers and divers today. It is not common to see a swim coach turn to the Rehabilitation but the joy of water in her life drives her to help others find all it’s amazing qualities. “If I flipped all I knew about water from coaching I could use it to help people heal on so many levels. It’s exhilarating to see!”

Sean Sullivan – Aquatic Therapist. Born and raised in Golden, Colorado Sean grew up surrounded by aquatics. At the age of 8 years old he started to swim competitively all the way through high school where he switched gears from swimming to diving. After high school, he left the beautiful state of Colorado and moved to the cold tundra of Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Sean attended Marquette University. He graduated in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology. After living in the cold Midwest for his collegiate career, he decided to move to sunny Santa Barbara, California for his last semester of college where he completed an internship at an aquatic therapy center. He discovered his strong passion for aquatic exercise during that time and is excited to be back in his home state to apply his aquatic knowledge to benefit the greater Evergreen Community.
During his free time, Sean enjoys playing basketball, rock climbing, working on his photography, and spending as much time as he can around a pool.

She has her associate degree from Red Rocks Community College and is currently working towards her Bachelors in Elementary Education at Metropolitan State University in Denver.
She has a deep love and appreciation for water that has stemmed from childhood. She was on swim team throughout elementary school and swam for Dakota Ridge High School in Littleton. Her summers have always been spent tubing down the river in Golden, cliff diving, and swimming in numerous lakes across the U.S and the ocean whenever she can get to it. She enjoys working at Evergreen Swims because it allows her to not only work with children but water as well. If she can teach children to have a love and passion for water similar to hers, that’s all that matters at the end of the day.

Growing up swimming in the ocean and on swim team every summer, she has had a lot of experience with both pleasure and competitive swimming. She thinks water is one of the most beautiful things on earth. It is healing, calming and inspiring, yet simultaneously unpredictable and wild. This is why she loves Courtney’s teaching philosophy at Evergreen Swims. In classes, she gets to see kids learn to both enjoy and respect water. She is also a passionate Marvel and Disney fan, which makes for very exciting conversations with her clients.
We can vary the temperature to fit the workout and goals of our clients. For example, indoor pool temperatures can vary from 75 to 85 degrees. For our infant or arthritis classes, we can set a temperature at the ideal 85 to 90 degrees to ensure best acclimation and movement with the least amount of discomfort.
Our chemical demands are next to nothing with our facility being indoors and seeing only a fraction of your public pool use. Therefore, we offer the most environmentally friendly and healthy option. A standard pool is on a constant circulation of chlorine levels throughout the day taking little account for use or loads. Ours only adds chlorine as needed and the most mild form is distributed only after hours. The difference you will see in your hair, skin and eyes will only emphasize the internal value of this aquatic exercise model.
