This doesn’t happen often, but Nitro Swimming is looking to add one high quality Swimming Coach to our USA Coaching staff at our Bee Cave, Texas location. We are looking to fill the position sooner rather than later, but will not settle until we find the RIGHT person.

This coaching position would be for one of our top two highest performing groups at our Nitro Bee Cave location.

Nitro Swimming Bee Cave is located on the West/Southwest side of Austin, Texas

We have two locations, each approximately 30,000 sq ft. Both are indoor facilities, with two beautiful indoor 50 meter pools in each one.

We are currently under construction on our third indoor 50 meter location – which will be a gorgeous 40,000 sq ft swim center able to host larger meets, and we will be staffing for that location in early spring. 

Who knows where this position may lead to…Through growth comes opportunity.

We are looking for that one individual who LOVES being on deck, possesses the X factor, with that rare ability to get athletes to run through walls for them (willingly!), and will stop at nothing to get us to the top.


Our Mission Statement simple. 3 sentences, 9 words:

Visible Improvement. Delivered with Passion and Joy. Every Day. 

Our next Performance Coach will be someone who ENJOYS working in a fast paced positive and competitive swim environment, and is EAGER to join the hardest working coaching staff in the country and continue to take our kids to the top.

This is a salaried position. 401K plan, PTO, Health Care package including vision/dental.

 But one of the most desired perks is what we call a “Rolling Day Off” awarded to our Coaches anytime they are on a pool deck covering a meet on a Sunday. 

We award them a day off the deck the next week to help with their Swim/Life balance. Our Coaches LOVE those.

You must possess that never ending desire to make every athlete in front of you better in the short time you have them each day.

The energy on the pool deck driven by the coaches is what makes the Nitro engine run. Hard to describe 23 lanes of high octane energy churning at once, with coaches lined up and down the pool deck feeding off of each other, but that’s what we do.

Send me a note  ([email protected]) explaining why you believe you are the one to take our kids to the top. Also include your competitive swimming and coaching experience with references. 

Looking to fill this as soon as we know it’s the right person.

If you’re THE Coach who overachieves with what you have in front of you, always producing, but perhaps are undercompensated, underfunded, lack of pool space/time, too many restrictions/ influences/board issues preventing you from doing the job you love to do, even perhaps underappreciated—this might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting a long time for. 

We’re Coach owned, Coach run. Time to take your shot and make it happen. Let’s Go Nitro!

Looking forward to hearing from you. You can also learn a little more about us at www.nitroswim.com

Thank You! Mike Koleber, Nitro Swimming.
