Coach’s Segment

Championship season is officially upon us and it is exciting to see all the hard work that the staff and athletes have put into the season pay off. The beautiful part about swimming is at the end of the season, you get exactly what you deserve. Your results are a direct result of the work you put into your swimming.

If anyone has any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc… please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at: joel.elber@gmail.com, (317) 517-5348
