I have been a Head Swim Coach At Two Olympic training facilities (Gold Medal Clubs) and I now coach competitive swimming privately full time.
Most of my current swimmers have qualified for State and Regionals and Nationals. Two made AG National Top 16 since I started coaching privately again 5 years ago. I've coached for 14 years total and have been swimming for over 30 years.
Philosophy: I am a stroke and turn coach, which means my style is technique-based as opposed to mileage-based. I am very, very detail oriented. I firmly believe IT'S NOT ABOUT GETTING IT DONE, IT'S ABOUT DOING IT REALLY WELL.
Technique, cardio base training and speed-work are just part. We learn to feel the water and work with it to maximize our speed, adjust our nutrition to support our training, to recover fully to get all the benefit from our hard work and learn the art of swimming.
