Matthew Johnson -   email

Born and raised in Atlanta into a large family of 4 children. Being the oldest has taught me to be a leader which helped when I became the team captain at my college. I have been swimming for 17 years and have trained with year round teams at Gwinnett Aquatics and Summit Swimming.

In high school I made the state varsity team for the 100 free and went on to place top 16 overall. I attended Darton College in Albany, GA for two years where I switched from sprint freestyle and butterfly to distance freestyle. I placed top 8 both freshman and sophomore year in the mile (1650). My distance training continued to Union College in Barbourville, KY where I placed 17th and 13th in the mile.

My love for swimming brought me to want to know more about how to help myself and others get better both in athletics and in life. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness in 2012. I have been the head coach of the Mountain Park Sharks (150 youth swimmers) for 4 years now and am extremely happy to be making the transition to a year round swim team. My love for coaching is unimaginably intense as I believe that the only way to get better at your goals is to have a purpose. My purpose is to help coach people to better themselves physically and mentally as they grow to love the sport. Swimming has brought me a great drive to be the best that I can be.

Favorite phrase: Never come to practice without a purpose. Come ready to learn with an open mind, open ears, and a ready body. A practice without a purpose isn’t hurting your coach, only yourself. When you don’t give your very best in practice your team mates know it first, your coach knows it second, and your opponents know it third. Don’t lose your purpose or you will lose the race.

 

Favorite super hero: 100% Batman now and forever.

 

Plans for the future: Help the West Georgia Swim Team improve their personal and collective goals and share my swimming knowledge with others. In September I plan to return to freestyle sprint training.

 

Thought to future swimmers:   If you tell yourself “you can” or “you can’t” do something, either way you will be right.
