Our very own Coach Kim has been selected by ASACA (American Swim Coaches Association) as one of their 2013 Fellows.
From ASCA: The Fellows is a mentorship program aimed at developing future (off deck) coach-leaders of our sport. The program is centered on the completion of a project done in the year between World Clinics, with the projects designed to advance the swimming body of knowledge. This work is guided/assisted by a mentor.
From Swimming World: June 13, 2013: Kim Seaman joins today's edition of The Morning Swim Show to talk about being a part of this year’s American Swimming Coaches Association’s fellowship program. Seaman is a coach at the Stingrays in Atlanta, where she was born and raised. She talks about why she has stayed in Atlanta almost her entire life, and what she loves about coaching. She also talks about working with the other coaches at Stingrays, and how often they meet despite working at five different training sites. In discussing her upcoming work with the ASCA fellowship program, she discusses why the topic appealed to her, and in discussing women in coaching, how she feels the sport has become more inviting for women to lead swim teams.
