SwimSwam Podcast: Tyler Fenwick on How UVA is Recruiting During Quarantine

On SwimSwam Podcast, we’re giving you an in-depth listen at all things swimming. Host Coleman Hodges welcomes guests and guest co-hosts alike to get perspective on our ever-changing swimming universe and break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

We sat down with Tyler Fenwick, the men’s/women’s swimming associate head coach at the University of Virginia. Fenwick gave us a look into how the UVA team is staying active and in-shape during this quarantine period and even mentioned that the team is swimming currently, they just can’t be coached by the staff.

Fenwick also dives into the emphasis UVA has put on recruiting and how that’s changed since COVID. Fenwick mentions there have been more zoom calls and face-to-face interactions, something he thoroughly enjoys and plans on continuing even after the quarantine period is over.

I’d have to think one of Tyler’s primary recruiting strategies now is keeping his biceps flexed as much as possible during a Zoom call

And also to see how many times he can use the word “bro” in each call.

Shares quite a physical resemblance with Shane Tusup

Speaking from experience it’s definitely “bro” or “yeah, man”. Jokes aside, he’s definitely a great recruiter.

He is an electric personality, one of most interesting coaches to talk to for a recruit!

Not to mention that he references SwimSwam during the interview and the LOVE for Dean Farris by SwimSwam followers 🙂

Already asked, and verified by the NCAA, but times achieved at virtual meets will not count as they don’t meet the bona fide competition rule

Tyler mentioned that perhaps some of these virtual meets will include local in-person opponents as well. That would solve the problem, I bet. I also wouldn’t rule out the possibility of the NCAA reversing course on this – as long as there is a certified official running the meet and perhaps other requirements to ensure veracity of results.
