At the recent American Swim Coaches Association World Clinic held in Anaheim, CA, the swimming community stopped to recognize the top 10 age-group coaches in the country for the 2017-2018 swim season.
Not only did the Novaquatics get honored by having one nomination, but received double the honor by having a rare two nominations; Rod Hansen and Andi Kawamoto-Klatt. These nominations pay tribute their efforts to bring excellence to the Novaquatics program. Who says lightening doesn't strike twice?
By the night's end, our own Rod Hansen had been named the 2018 ASCA/Fitter & Faster Age Group Coach of the Year. In his speech, Rod recognized that the award wasn't an individual win, but a collective win which includes the entire NOVA Coaching Staff, athletes, and families.
