Meet Coach Greene

In his role as aquatics director, Coach Billy Greene brings more than 15 years of experience to The J.

Coach Billy Greene began competitive swimming at age 7. Watching talented swimmers in the East Lake Pool sparked his competitive nature and saw him setting goals to improve his freestyle and breaststroke. Eventually he was recruited to join the Birmingham Parks and Recreation year-round swim team, where he rose to the No. 2 overall swimmer in the city.

Billy returned to the 300-member East Lake team and swam with them to championships in 2004, 2005, and 2006.

“I want to remove the stereotypical mindset that children cannot achieve a skill unless they are of higher economic status,” Billy says. “My hope is to open doors for my swimmers by teaching them that they can become lifeguards, personal trainers, or any other career that they aspire to. To see children grow into their potential and complete their goals is a fulfilling accomplishment.” He knows he’s done his job when he sees kids passing on their skills and encouraging others.

Billy is a Red Cross-certified lifeguard and lifesaving instructor at The J.
