NISCA-SwimOutlet.com Interscholastic Coach of the Month - Wednesday, March 18, 2015

This month’s SwimOutlet.com Coach of the Month spotlights Russ Ingold, a 21-year coaching veteran at Blue Valley Southwest in Overland Park, KS. Congrats!

Name: Russ Ingold

School: Blue Valley Southwest

City: Overland Park, Kansas

Years Coaching: 21 years.

Biggest Team Success: Helping to bring the first state championship to Blue Valley Southwest High School. The 2013 Girls team was the first team state championship in the school’s short 3 year history, and then repeat in 2014.

Favorite thing about Coaching: This is a hard question to answer and I hope this doesn’t sound too corny because I’ve been fortunate to work with some very talented athletes, league champs, state champs, high school all-Americans, a few that went on to dive at D1 colleges,  and even one that made the Olympic Trials finals. But my favorite things about coaching is, having that high school kid walk on the pool deck for the first time ever and have them say, “I want to try diving.” Then getting them to believe that they can do things that they never thought they could ever do, and then watch them do it.

Favorite Drill: We play a game called Jump or Dive. It’s a game that helps to teach balance on a forward take off. The diver does a front approach and as they come down from their hurdle step the coach yells out jump or dive. The object of the diver is to listen and either go in the water feet first or hands first, depending on what was called. If the diver has their weight on their heels it is hard to rotate to go in head first. If they are leaning forward they will have too much rotation and go in head first.

Congratulations, Coach Russ!
