Laren A Tiltmann
SEN 3 Coach
Just a little summary for those who
do not know me. I’ve had a dual career in swimming as both a
coach and an athlete. First, the swimming side: I started swimming
at the age of 7 in my home country of South Africa and excelled in
the sport breaking national records by age 12. Then I entered the
difficult teenage years and lost my focus on swimming (in favor of
rugby) and even took a break from the sport at age 19 for 2 years.
I returned to the sport and a year later found myself swimming in
the USA as a Division I athlete at the University of Nebraska where
I attended NCAAs and achieved All-American honors. The
following year I returned home and raced internationally,
representing my native South Africa. Not long thereafter, I
retired from swimming. The best part of my career was that the
first pool I achieved honors in, as a 7 year old in South Africa,
was the same pool I swam my final race in 17 years later. My
competitive swimming journey was complete or so I thought.
About 12 years later, I started swimming again as an adult
with EBSC masters and in 2012 attained 3 Top Ten world rankings,
including a 4th place ranking in the 50 freestyle. The
best part about masters swimming has been my ability to reacquaint
myself with the water, learn and try new things and reevaluate
everything I thought I knew.
Now on to the coaching side: I
started coaching as an 18 year old teaching swim lessons in my back
yard. My official coaching career began as a graduate assistant in
college in 1996, working with many world class athletes in the
Division I college arena. I attained my first club head coach
position 2 years later before I moved back to Wisconsin in 1999.
Through 2001 and 2007, I served as club head coach at two local
teams and was co-founder of Ozaukee Aquatics in 2003. I left
coaching at the end of 2007 with 3 young kids who needed a dad to
teach them how to swim instead of others people’s kids. I
entered the swim retail business for 2 years before focusing
exclusively on my family.
I’m very happy to be back
on-deck to share my knowledge and experience with a great club like
EBSC. My philosophy is somewhat triangular when I approach any
level of athlete: Person-Psychology-Swimming Mechanics all
supported by time spent in the water, which I like to refer to as
‘water-time’. Another term for my triangular approach
is ‘development’. The journey has to be enjoyed, placed
in perspective and goal driven. Like any successful endeavor there
are no quick fixes, short cuts or magic bullets to success. Coach
Brent has given me an opportunity to work with your children and
help bridge that gap between age grouper and senior athlete at
EBSC. I thank him for the opportunity and look forward to sharing
my knowledge with both the swimmers and the parents. My door is
always open and I’m excited to be
