Chad Reimschussel Assistant Coach

I started coaching and have been coaching for 15+ years between the local club and high school teams.  During my coaching experience I have worked with athletes from the beginning to college level swimming, teaching athletes what it takes to reach the next level of competition.  I love teaching and working with others.  I am very interested in staying in the front of the education wave, teaching and learning what it takes to become the very best.  I am currently a ASCA level 3 certified.
