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!
