Swimoutlet.com Interscholastic Swim Coach of the Month Tuesday, October 25, 2016


Thanks to our partners at Swimoutlet.com for highlighting a Interscholastic Coach of the Month 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!

If you know of a NISCA coach who deserves to be honored as the NISCA/Swimoutlet.com Interscholastic Coach of the Month, please send their name, team and e-mail address to secretary@niscaonline.org.
