Coaches Philosophy

Black Hills Gold Swimming is in existence to aid in the health, welfare and happiness of its young people.  We believe that swimming is one of the very best ways to develop a healthy body and mind.  Positive reinforcement, along with individual goal setting is used to develop a love of the sport, as well as to build confidence and strong self-esteem in our swimmers.  Our interest is in building lifetime swimmers.  We aim to maintain a program with enough flexibility to allow swimmers the opportunity to experience success in many areas of their lives, and we support the activities and desires of our swimmers to be contributing members of their schools and community.   We believe this allows for both competitive success and mental and physical strength. 

Coaches’ Goals

  • To provide a positive experience for swimmers of all abilities.
  • To provide access to a healthy lifestyle that can be followed for the swimmers lifetime.
  • To provide positive instruction and improvement of all strokes.
  •  To provide an opportunity to see and work towards accomplishing short and long term goals.
