The 2016-17 season will be Kurt's seventh with the Delta Sungod Swim Club and his 5th as the Head Coach.  He is looking forward to the continued improvements seen last season in all aspects of the club.  Coach Kurt will be in charge of the TAG group, a Dragons Learn to Compete Group and the overall administration of the club.  It is his hope that his brand of coaching will lead to great personal improvements for all swimmers in the club and a smoothly run season for parents and volunteers.

Kurt believes that every child can achieve excellence and that the correct training and motivation will lead them to that achievement.  Success begets success; by starting with small manageable challenges. Building from there an athlete can reach his or her goals; whatever they are striving for.

Kurt is NCCP level 2 qualified and holds an honours degree in human kinetics.
