Please contact me when your head swim coach position is open. I have had many swimmers in the Olympics from different countries and one from the USA won 2 gold medals for America. Also, I had 14 high schools swimming at one pool during one season and I was doing the work outs for all of them!

Hope to hear from you soon,
