Denison Adds Kristen Skroski as Assistant Coach

Denison has added Kristen Skroski as an assistant coach for the 2023-24 season, the reigning Division III champions announced on Monday.

Skroski swam at Bucknell University, where she graduated in 2008. The coaching experience since has been mostly in the club realm.

“We’re fortunate and excited to add Kristen to our coaching staff,” head coach Gregg Parini said in a team statement. “She brings a wealth of coaching experience and expertise to the Denison program. I look forward to watching our student-athletes benefit from her high-energy coaching.”

Skroski spent the last six years coaching at Cypress Fairbanks Aquatic Club in Texas. Before that, she spent nearly a decade at Amity Regional Aquatic Club in her home state of Connecticut.

Skroski was a three-time All-Patriot League selection and a two-time Academic All-Patriot League pick. She was the team’s MVP in 2008, the year she received her bachelor’s degree in animal behavior.

“I’m very excited to be joining such an established and successful coaching staff at Denison University and stepping into the college arena with such an intelligent and talented team of student-athletes,” Skroski said. “I can’t wait to add my creativity and passion to the mix and see what levels we can reach. Go Big Red.”

Skroski fills the vacancy left by associate head coach Kim Lloyd, who stepped down after nine seasons at Denison to attend law school. Lloyd helped the Big Red women’s team win its second NCAA Division III Championship in 2023.
