New Coaches Roles: We are VERY excited to announce new team
roles for Coach Dale and Coach Kevin.
Coach Dale has been teaching and coaching for over 50 years. In that time he has become a Colorado Swimming Icon. Coach Dale will take over the Technical Coach Role that Coach Nancy has given the team for many years. You will see Coach Dale at your pool weekly as he works with different coaches and different groups to keep all groups technique sharp.
Coach Kevin has been teaching for over 30 years and he will retire from the classroom at the end of the school year. This is great news for Loveland Swim Club as Kevin will take on a larger team role. Kevin will take over the coaching and planning for the Platinum group in May. He will meet with parents soon to cover information and planning for the Platinum Group. Over the past several seasons we have seen a HUGE improvement in the Silver Group coached by Kevin and we will see the same attention to detail and motivation for the Platinum Swimmers.
Race Day Saturday, April 7 – Splash, Bronze, Silver and Gold Swimmers: This Saturday – April 7 we will have a race preparation day at DHAC. This is a chance to work race starts and prepare for meets this spring and summer. The session is 7:30-9:00 AM

The banquet will be at MVHS from 5:30-7:45 PM. All swimmers are encouraged to attend. Details will be posted and sent out later this week. We had a parent that created the team video for the past several years – her swimmer graduated last year and we are looking for someone with this type of computer and video knowledge to take on the role for the next 2-3 years. If you are interested please contact Coach Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org
