Why Arizona: Arizona has always been a big part of my family history. More importantly however, Arizona has a great reputation for excellence both in and out of the pool. High ranked departments and a great swim program is very hard to find. Having that balance was essential. Plus swimming outside is always a plus in my book. The combination of the team atmosphere and the coaches is unbeatable. I love going to practice and working together as a team to achieve our goals. In addition to being great swim coaches, our staff is full energy and have the ability to be your coach one moment, a father figure, or your friend.
