Stacy Maloney - Head Coach / Gym Manager
Swiss Turner's Team is lead by Stacy Maloney who has been at Swiss Turner's now for 24 years as Head Coach and for the past 16 years as gym manager. Stacy had a successful career as a gymnast, but his coaching credentials are hard to match. As a gymnast Stacy was a 2 time US National Team Member and the Big 8 Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1980. Stacy served as an assistant college coach for one year at UW Oshkosh and for 3 years at the University of Illinois. After coaching for a number of years at various clubs in Los Angeles and Milwaukee, Stacy moved to Swiss Turner's in 1992 where he began building up their boys team program. Along with him came two remarkably talented twin boys named Paul and Morgan Hamm whom he had been coaching privately for two years previous. By 1998, Swiss Turner's was the dominant Boy's Team Program in the USA. Paul and Morgan Hamm became the second youngest men to ever make the Men's Olympic Team in 2000. In 2003 Stacy was an assistant coach for Team USA at the World Championships where they took the Silver and Paul Hamm made history becoming the first American male to win the World Championship All Around Title. Paul went on to make history again at the 2004 Olympics by becoming the first American male to win the Olympic All Around Gold Medal. For all his coaching success Stacy was awarded USA Gymnastic's Men's National Coach of the Year twice, in 1998 and again in 2004. He was named the 2000 Olympic Men's Developmental Gymnastics Coach of the Year, and in 2011 Stacy received the incredible honor of being inducted into USA Gymnastic's Hall of Fame as a coach. Stacy has a BA in Business and an MBA in Finance. He has married to Annette Maloney for 24 years and has two fabulous children, Shane and Erin, both of whom are now in college. In his spare time Stacy is musician.
