In case you were wondering a little bit about me, I am from Knoxville Tennessee (Go Vols) and have been participating in the sport of swimming since I was 6 years old. I started coaching when I turned 18 and have been at it ever since. I am a technique first coach who likes to use lots of drills to work on specific skills needed to refine and perfect start, turn, finish, and stroke techniques. I also put a big emphasis on kicking a lot throughout the season. For the last 2 years I was the lead coach for the Level 1 group of swimmers with the South Shore Sails swim team. That group was very similar to the age range and skill level of Bronze 2. I’ve also served as an assistant coach with Sienna Plantation Aquatics and The Barracudas Swim Club of Northeast TN. I’ve been a head coach at the High School and summer league level in the past as well.
