Swim Lesson Instructors:

Hayley Rupp
Hi, I’m Hayley! I have been swimming at Turpin Hills since I was 7 years old. I finished my 10th year of swimming for Turpin Hills two years ago. I graduated from Turpin High School and I’m now a sophomore studying health sciences on the pre-medicine track and swimming at Cleveland State University.

My sisters and I were all introduced to the sport from our dad, who swam in high school and continued his career to the collegiate level at Xavier University. My favorite stokes are IM and breaststoke. For as long as I can remember, my family and I have been spending most of our summers in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. This is our favorite vacation spot! A fun fact about me is that swimming has taken me to places all over the country! Some of those places include, Chicago, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Lexington, Nashville, and Indianapolis. I cannot wait for another summer of swimming!

If you are interested in private lessons, you can contact me by either email or phone: Hayleyrupp@yahoo.com or 513-364-4900. I will be charging $25 for each 30 minute private lesson. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
