GARRETT'S COACHING PHILOSOPHY

Coaching is my passion and an opportunity to give back to the sport that has given me so much. I educate and motivate with positive energy and great enthusiasm on deck at every practice. My objective is to get every child to smile and have fun while working hard to reach their goals. Provide opportunity to develop a mature sense of self and an outward responsibility toward their community, I believe a swim team is about much more than a competitive individual environment. My mission is to help each child develop into a better person and become highly successful adults as a result of their swim experience. Swimmers need to bond with their teammates and learn sportsmanship if they want to maximize their true potential and recognize their role in the community. Technique is a tremendous priority every day and is part of each workout plan. In my practices every lap has a purpose. Swimming is about propulsion and resistance, technique will minimize resistance and good habits are the easiest path to success for each swimmer.
