Coach RT's Philosophy:

"My philosphy concentrates on developing swimmers into well-rounded athletes. Swimming is for a lifetime, no matter what the goals may be whether for recreational purposes or the competitive swimmer. Teaching and developing swimmers through close-knit, family-like atmosphere helps develop life skills that can be applied in and out of the pool. Ultimately, my goal is to develop successful swimmers who have the knowledge to become their own coaches."
