Coach Seth Orlove has been a part of many

He has been a part of the Niles North High School Viking Swimming and Diving Programs for the past 20 years; and, is currently the Head Coach of the Boys Team and Assistant Coach of the Girls Team. As Head Coach of the Boy’s Team over the past 15+ years, he has had over 80 CSL All Conference Athletes, numerous IHSA State Qualifiers, All State Athletes, and has led the team to setting over 35 new school records and winning 5 CSL North Conference Championships.
Being involved in the athletic arena throughout his entire life, both as a competitor and as an avid observer, he has a true appreciation of the intrinsic values that sport (especially swimming) can have on an individual. A sense of belonging; motivation, determination, and self- esteem; hard work, commitment, dedication, and perseverance - these serve as both building blocks and cornerstones for successful athletes and successful people. Teaching these values to future generations of athletes will provide them with the necessary skills to lead fulfilling swimming careers and lives.
