Aquatex Swim & Water Polo Team’s goal is:

“To promote excellence in competitive swimming and water polo”. Aquatex is a competitive oriented membership program for swimmers, including USA Swimming, USMS Masters Swimming, and USA Water Polo.

Aquatex will use a method referred to as “Process Driven Coaching Excellence”. It will be Athlete-centered, Coach-driven, Service supported, and Performance-based.

Athlete-Centered -

Maximizing the individual potential of the athlete.

Coach Driven –

The coach leads and manages a multidisciplinary program aimed at developing and delivering best practice processes to the individual athletes.

Service-Supported -

Support services assist the programs in maximizing individual athlete performances.

Performance-Based -

The achievement of agreed goals.

I am very passionate about swimming, and truly believe in the way a swim team should be run. I am not perfect, have, and will continue to make mistakes. However, I will always be upfront and honest about my views, and hope to learn from my mistakes, and will continue to take risks, just as I ask of my swimmers.

A team that believes that traveling to swim meets and places like the Olympic Training Center, or Boston for college tours of Harvard, MIT, Boston College, Tufts, etc. is just as important, if not more so, than how fast you swam at a particular meet.

The opportunity to swim at the collegiate level, even if you decide that is not the path you choose to follow.

I look forward to many years of working with our community’s kids, their parents, being involved in their lives, to hopefully have a positive impact, and be someone they remember for the rest of their lives.
