Chad Dillon

Head Coach

Email

Lead Senior Black, Age Group Black

Chad comes to Boilermaker Aquatics with an eager heart to guide the team and coaching staff. In 2008, his coaching career began with the opportunity to coach some of the youngest athletes.

With a growing enthusiasm for coaching swimming and young people, Chad moved back to Noblesville, Indiana to coach the club from which he graduated. For a year, he coached with every age group.
 
In the Summer of 2012, Chad had the chance to join the staff of Carmel Swim Club as an assistant coach and assistant to the aquatics director. Both positions presented different responsibilities but equal learning opportunities, and the next year and a half included many hours of coaching experience with a lot of age group athletes, delving into a highly structured dryland program, and further growth as a professional coach. 
 
In 2014, Chad got his first opportunity to lead a swim club with the Sioux Falls Seals in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. A different club, but it presented the same opportunity to work with great people and athletes as well as an incredibly experienced staff. Establishing a dryland program and building.
 
With these many years and experiences, Chad also swam competitively for 11 years of his young life. Those years began with a Summer League team in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and finished when he graduated high school in Noblesville. All the teams he spent time with provided the chance to learn from and work with thousands of teammates, competitors, and coaches. 
 
His enthusiasm continues to grow for teaching young people, and at the core of Chad's focus is to teach the benefits of a team's pursuit towards excellence while maintaining a balance of fun and performance.

Lead Enterprise 1 and Enterprise 2

I started my competitive swimming career when I was nine years old.  I was lucky enough to finish my  career swimming for Purdue University.  After competing at my final Big Ten Championship my senior year, I immediately started coaching.  There have not been too many stretches of time since then when I haven't coached!  I LOVE it!  I have coached in California, Montana, Ohio, and Indiana! I am the proud parent of three registered Boilermaker Aquatics swimmers!
