Jeff loves working with novice swimmers because it's such a
crucial time in a swimmer's career. For many swimmers, this is the
first time they get to swim competitively, so not only do
swimmer and coach get to work on building a strong stroke
foundation by teaching proper technique, but they also get to
teach sportsmanship, and build a strong team community. He looks
forward to helping young swimmers fall in love with an amazing
sport that has meant so much to him.
