January 2, 2013
With 2013 upon us, the coaching staff would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It is with mixed emotions that we say "Goodbye" to Coach Cavin. As much as we all loved having him around we are happy about his opportunity for him to continue his coaching and education. He will be joining the staff of Gulliver Prep in Miami beginning his Master's degree. Please join us in wishing him the very best. Rest assured that we will find a quality replacement, just as we did when we hired Coach Cavin.
Looking forward; we have already begun a local / national search for the new Age Group Coach. I am committed to finding an excellent Coach, whom will be with AmberJax for years to come The Gold group has long been a focus of the AmberJax and we consider this search the highest priority. We have already received interest from a number of candidates and are excited about the possibilities. However, due to the importance of this position, we will take all the time that we need to find the right fit. What does this mean for the AmberJax in the short term? We are pleased to announce that Coach Stephanie Schuster will take over as Gold Coach. Stephanie has been coaching with the AmberJax for the last 5 seasons and has been a coach at all levels. She has been selected as a Florida Swimming All-Star Coach for the last 3 seasons and has served as both a Florida Swimming Zone manager and coach. During her time as the Gold coach, she will be supported by both Coach Doug and me while we search for a permanent solution. Our families have been remarkably loyal over the years, and we appreciate your patience as we conduct the search for this position. With that, I’m determined to find the right person to lead our age group program, someone who shares my vision, understands the commitment we will demand, and is qualified and ready to seize this opportunity.
I’m sure many of you might have more questions, please feel free to call and talk to me any time.
May 2013, be a successful year for each of our AmberJax families!
