Swimming From Home Talk Show: Todd DeSorbo on Communication, Staying Active

We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing.

Head coach of Virginia Todd DeSorbo dives into changes as a head coach now that we are on lockdown for the coronavirus.

His priority now is finding ways his team can keep improving, whether that’s physically or simply through staying connected.
