Tim Smith

10 & Under Age Group Coach


My Parents started me into swimming when I was six years old under a doctors advisement due to a lung disease I contracted. After that I have always been active in some kind of sport or activity. I start swimming when I lived in Illinois and continued in Jr. High School and High School in Texas.
My wife and I started our all our children swimming at a young ages at Hunter Aquatic Team. I was one of those parents that sat on the bench watching every practice. One day Steve Marsing asked me if I would be interested in helping out with the novice swim group. I have been coaching the novice group since 2004 and coached the pre comp group for 3 years after Hunter Aquatics team combined with West Valley Aquatics.
