Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested Valley swimming coach Nathan Moore this week for allegedly sexually abusing a teenage girl he was coaching. He is accused of sexual abuse and sexual conduct with a minor.
The girl’s parents contacted MCSO detectives in March after their daughter told them that she had and Moore had been in a sexual relationship while Moore was her swim coach.
Court documents say that the girl told detectives that Moore started coaching her when she was 13 and inappropriately touched her for the first time in the Scottsdale Lifetime Fitness pool area when she was 15.
Moore started coaching at the Anthem Community Center in 2018. According to court documents, he would drive the alleged victim to swim practice and would sexually abuse her at the Anthem Outlets parking lot before driving her home.
The alleged victim says that she and Moore first had sex when she was 16 years old. She says she ended the relationship at age 17.
The girl spoke with Moore in a call monitored by investigators and he allegedly acknowledged sexually abusing her when she was underage.
Moore has coached at various gyms, high schools, aquatic and community centers throughout the Valley. Detectives believe there may be more victims and have asked anyone with information to call the MCSO at 602-876-1011.
