I may be over qualified. I have had a number of swimmers for America, Mexico and Germany swim on their Olympic team. One of the American swimmers got two gold medals in the Olympics!

I coached 14 High Schools in GA one season with help, but I was the head coach.

I am writing a book on coaching now.

Ask me some details and then if you like what you hear, I’d like to come out and show you, the parents and the swimmers what I know and how I teach them how to go faster.

PS I need to know from you if there is much interest because I have three others on the line!
