Coach Kurt will be in charge of the Junior: White and Junior: Blue groups as well as the overall administration of the club. 

​​​​​​​It is his hope that his brand of coaching will lead to great personal improvements for all swimmers in the club and a smoothly run season for parents and volunteers.  Kurt believes that every child can achieve excellence and that the correct training and motivation will lead them to that achievement.  Success begets success; by starting with small manageable challenges. Building from there an athlete can reach his or her goals; whatever they are striving for.
