Swimoutlet.com Interscholastic Coach of the Month Monday, October 24, 2016


Thanks to our partners at Swimoutlet.com who honor a different High School coach each month. 

This month’s SwimOutlet.com Coach of the Month spotlights Jim Svoboda, a seasoned head coach at Klein High School in Houston, Texas. Congrats!

Name: Jim Svoboda
School: Klein High School
Hometown: Houston, TX
Years Coaching: 5 years as Head Coach
Biggest Team Success: In 2015, Klein High broke Texas State record in Boy’s 400 Free Relay
Favorite Thing About Coaching: Watching the athlete develop as a swimmer as well as a person in learning life lessons through the ups and downs of practices and competitions.
Favorite Drill for Your Team: Klein Free Drill in cooperates four different drills.  The first is 6-kick switch, 2nd is thumb up the side, 3rd is fingertip drag, and the 4th is 6 kicks while their arm is moving.  I want the swimmers to think during the drill, so that they can feel the change in their strokes. 

Congratulations, Coach Svoboda!

Biggest Team Success: My biggest success has to be winning two New Jersey State Team Championships in 2014 and 2015. It was a very talented group of swimmers who were also very versatile. We worked extremely hard each day at practice and everything fell into place during the playoffs.
Favorite Thing About Coaching: The best thing about coaching is working with all levels of swimmers and getting to know the kids.  Our team has all levels, from the club swimmer to the novice.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (April 19, 2016) — At its March 21-23 meeting in Indianapolis, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Swimming and Diving Rules Committee approved a change to the freestyle portion of the individual medley and medley relay as it relates to body position.

An addition to Rule 8-2-4c will read as follows: “The final leg of the individual medley and the medley relay requires the swimmer to be at or past vertical toward the breast before any stroke, kick or propulsive motion.” 

This revision was one of several changes recommended by the Swimming and Diving Rules Committee and subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
