Thank you LSC!

Loveland Swim Club Families:

It is with sadness, excitement, and a sincere hope for what the future will hold that I’m writing to you today.

Jen, Alex, Grace, and I have decided to return to Arizona to be closer to our family. 

We joined Loveland Swim club 16 years ago with a mission to improve the team and be part of a wonderful community. Since 2003 I have worked tirelessly to coach and teach swimmers to the best of my ability. The number of great athletes that have gone on to swim in college, the travel meets, the team retreats, the team banquets, and over 8,000 practices are all wrapped up in great memories that I hope we all will share for the rest of our lives.

I am very proud of starting Loveland sports day camp 15 years ago and I know that we have provided a fun, educational, and safe place for children to go during the summer. I look forward to running another successful summer camp and I hope to show others how to continue this program well into the future.

My family and I are going to miss all the great teammates and families we have gotten to know in Colorado. Please know that we will always be cheering for your successes and we hope our friendships will endure. 

I am going to miss all the coaches I have met and I know that with continued input from coaches Kevin, Sam, Colin, Tory, Jane, Kelley, Naomi, Hannah, Nancy, Elan, and Chandler the team will always be pointed in a good direction. The legacy coaches led by Coach Hewson have taught us all well and are a great beacon of how to do things correctly. 

The Loveland Swim Club name is well known throughout our sport and I know a great new leader will be found to take the team forward. The future looks bright for the team and I hope that we can find a leader that can teach and train swimmers and families as well as to unify the approach on the swim center at the Ranch.

We are planning to finish the long course swim season as well as the long course summer camp season. 

As we move forward if I can do anything for the team or for any of the swimmers please do not hesitate to let me know

All the best

Coach Jim
