For any families who are interested in swimming in the spring: The primary purpose of the MAPSC league is to grow our sport. Heather & I own and coach for Michiana Stars, a developmental and competitive club swim program (ages 5 - college) that swims all year long, and I would be happy to provide more information to anyone interested!  I also have good relationships with coaches from all of our local swim teams, and we are lucky to have a good chunk of Swanson Sharks who represent those teams. I am happy to answer any questions I can, or to put you in contact with the right people!

This summer is a BIG one for Swanson. Despite the recent bumps in the road, I am more excited than ever to jump back in with the best summer league swim team around! We are coming off of one of the best seasons we’ve ever had – earning 2nd at conference – and I know that it’s going to be a great summer. Spread the word, bring some friends out, and let’s get ready to race!

I truly believe that swimming is the best sport in the world, and an absolutely invaluable skill to have. I love coaching and am extraordinarily grateful to be part of such an amazing team. Thanks and see you soon.

Go Sharks!

As always, please feel free to contact me at any time.
