Missy ContriMissy

Interim Aquatics Director

Missy is the Aquatics Interim Director and Swim Team Coach at the Y.

One of Missy’s favorite things about her job is when she is teaching a swimmer and it clicks. Missy likes that she is not just teaching a sport, but a life skill that could save someone’s life one day.  “Also I can wear flip flops in the middle of the winter when there is a foot of snow outside,” Missy said.

Missy helps members by helping them “navigate the waters” of the many swim and aquatics programs that the Y offers.

A fun fact about Missy is that she has escaped Alcatraz! She participated in the Alcatraz Sharkfest swim, which is a 1.5-mile swim off the historic island prison in the San Francisco Bay. “It took months of training, but was well worth it to check it off my bucket list,” said Missy. “It was my first and last open water swim as I prefer a clear warm pool to swim in.”
