Meet PRSC’S Aquatics Director, Heather Moffitt and her Swim Team Coaches!
We want to send a warm welcome to our fabulous coaching staff! Heather Moffitt is the perfect person to run our growing aquatics program.
Heather G Moffitt, Aquatics Director & Head Coach of Swim Team
Head Coach Heather came to the North County Aquatics Swim Team in August of 2007. Throughout the years, she has worked with various levels ranging from the younger age group swimmers, to the senior level athletes and has coached high school swim teams. She has taught all levels for close to 20 years.
Heather is ASCA certified Level 2 with education and swimmer time standards through ASCA Level 3.
Some of Heather's greatest accomplishments have come with the North County Aquatics Swim Team (aka NCA). After only a few short years of becoming the head coach for NCA, Heather has had numerous swimmers qualify for some of the top swim meets in the nation, such as Senior Zones, Age Group Zones and Far Westerns.
Heather was born in Atascadero, CA. and was raised on the Central Coast. She has swam competitively since the age of six. Heather swam for California State University of Bakersfield a Division II school. Heather graduated with a B.S. in Criminal Justice and a minor in Child Psychology in 1995. Heather was a Deputy Probation Officer II, for Santa Barbara County and Kern County. She has competed in numerous Triathlons throughout the years and still competes in the local Wild Flower triathlon held each May.
Heather has two children, Kasey (15) and Kendall (10) who currently swim for NCA.
Stephanie Lee, Assistant Coach
Stephanie began swimming at her hometown pool and participating in water sports as a young child. She has always had a love for the water and enjoys swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and playing in the waves at the beach on her board or kayak.
Stephanie has worked with and educated children since the 1980's and received her teaching credential from Westmont College in 1992. With over 20 years of teaching experience, teaching is an integral part of her life whether it be in the classroom, in pool, or on the court.
When her daughter started swimming at age 5 she became very involved with her club team. After moving to Templeton in 2006 Stephanie's family became involved with NCA. Stephanie is a swim mom, has served on the NCA Board, and began instructing swimmers in 2010. She has worked with NCA's most novice swimmers teaching water safety and beginning swimming. She is a trained and certified swim coach with ASCA certified level 1 and now serves as NCA's stroke coach for beginning and intermediate swimmers.
Stephanie's passion for teaching and coaching help form values and discipline in NCA's developing swimmers. She works with all types of children instilling a positive work ethic and a passion for the water. With her continued training and aquatic knowledge, she provides a safe environment and the foundation in technique giving NCA swimmers as much potential for success as possible.
Jackie J Hancock, Assistant Coach - Swim School
Jackie has always had an affinity for water. She grew up on a youth swim team in southern California and continued swimming with a master’s group through college at Cal Poly. Her daughter began swimming with NCA in 2012. Wanting to be more involved with this exceptional team, Jackie began coaching in the “Dragon Pond” in 2013. Here she teaches novice and beginning swimmers the basics of water safety and a foundation of swim strokes. She focuses on body position and stroke progression skills that can be carried into each subsequent swim level. Coaching with NCA has allowed Jackie to share her passion with young swimmers and instill the same level of enthusiasm and love for the water that she has developed since childhood.
Lucy Titchin, Assistant Coach
Lucy learned to swim at the age of 4 in her hometown of Weston-Super-Mare, England. She developed a passion for the sport and competing, in particular when she competed in her first National Championships at the age of 11. At that age, Lucy began training with an elite team at Bath University with whom she made her very first British Championships qualifying time. At age 14, Lucy and her family decided it was best for her academic and swimming career that she attend Millfield boarding school. A boarding school with a greatly successful swimming team meant that Lucy could focus on developing her passion for swimming without letting her academic achievements be negatively affected. After medaling at Nationals, swimming for England and attending the British Olympic trials, Lucy got selected to swim for Great Britain in the European Junior Championships, Prague. In her senior year of Millfield, Lucy got recruited for Fresno State’s division 1 Women’s swimming program. In her collegiate career, she broke the school’s 200yd freestyle record, as well as four relay team records. Her senior year, Lucy was captain of the swim team, was voted “Most Influential”, and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology.
Lucy has been a volunteer coach frequently at her home team in Weston-Super-Mare from the age of 13-18. She coached an Easter swimming camp at age 18 and taught swimming lessons during her college years. After moving to Paso Robles, Lucy coached for Puma before joining the NCA family. Since coaching, she has thoroughly enjoyed watching the progression and improvement of her swimmers, as well as creating exciting new friendships.

Tips to Win Your Next Tennis Match!As we push forward into May and our great Central Coast tennis weather and more match play, I thought I'd remind us of how tennis players who consistently win their matches bring more to the court than a killer forehand or serve. Winning is an art that involves the ability to observe your opponent and act on what you see. It also takes an ability to protect, and even mask, your own weaknesses. Here are strategies that will help you become a better competitor and, ultimately, win more matches.
Stick With What Works
Don't stop attacking your opponent's weaknesses until they have proven repeatedly that they have solved the problem. In other words, stick with the same old boring winner.
Watch How Your Opponent Moves
Pay attention to the opponent's movement likes and dislikes. Some opponents are terrific from the baseline yet pitiful when pulled forward into the forecourt or net. If you uncover bad movement to a certain side or area of the court from your opponent, hit the ball there as much as possible to draw errors.
Pay Attention to Patterns of Play
If you discover a certain shot pattern of yours works like a charm against a certain opponent, revisit it as often as possible and especially on game/big points. Also, if the opponent's smart enough to be hurting you with a certain repeated pattern, expect it on big points and prepare for it.
Watch Where Your Opponent Plays From
Pay attention to the opponent's court position. For example, an opponent who likes drifting back and forth five feet beyond the baseline during points is typically in a neutral or defensive shot making position. You should be ready to move inside the court taking advantage of their next short ball, preparing to execute a shot then puts pressure on your opponent or ends the point right away.
What Is Your Opponent's Short Ball Preference?
Most of us can't hit repeated deep balls to the baseline match after match and our shots will tend to land short, so pay attention to your opponent's preferred short ball options. For example: one opponent may prefer an approach shot/volley pattern, while another opponent may prefer to simply try to hit a down the line winning groundstroke off of your short balls. Which short ball option is their favorite? Determine their preference, prepare and move for their preference shot early to give yourself the best chance of returning it.
Think Like a Baseball Pitcher
Yes, we are hitting tennis balls, but think of your shot as your opponent's incoming pitch. Are you throwing the same 40 mph topspin "fastball", 3 feet over the net directly into their wheelhouse over and over again? And then walk away from the match saying, "They were too good! I had no chance!" The reality is you made them look good by serving up the same "pitch" time after time. Spend time and learn how to change speeds ("change-ups"), spins ("curves") and directions ("sliders") of your shots so they can't zone in your same familiar ball time and time again and punish you for it.
Try some of these match winning strategies and think better on the court than your opponent and those players you perceive are perhaps more "technically" talented and more "experienced" than you will be brought down a notch or two.
