Swimoutlet.com Interscholastic Swim Coach of the Month Monday, October 16, 2017


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 Chris Aarseth, a 22-year coaching veteran at Minneapolis Southwest High School, from Minneapolis, MN. Congrats!

Name: Chris Aarseth

School: Minneapolis Southwest High School

Years Coaching: 22 years

Biggest Team Success: Finishing 8th at our state meet as well as finishing 10th in NISCA Power Points, our highest in school history

Favorite Thing About Coaching: Developing relationships with the athletes and watching them learn to trust themselves, each other, and the coaches.  There is nothing better to see each one put the process before the outcome.  

Favorite Drill for Your Team: We do a variety of drills at practice. I like to do a basic drill we call hand lead.  It helps with head position, high hips, and proper kick. The swimmers lay face down in the water with their arms extended above their heard.  Not really streamlined, about shoulder width apart while keeping their heads in line with their spines. They then kick to the end of the pool. I also like how it helps them get long, or what I say sometimes say "big" in the water. They use their arms to balance but also use their core and kick to help stay stable.    

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.

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!
