SwimSwam caught up with SPIRE Academy Head Coach Thad Schultz at the ASCA World Clinic in Dallas last week. SPIRE is home to athletes from around the world, making it a uniquely international hub for swim training at a high level. With world-class facilities and staff prepared to help athletes in and out of the pool, it is a one-of-a-kind swimming experience for a high school student.
