Interscholastic Coach of the Month Award - February 2018
Coaches are the backbone of any swim team and frequently the unsung heroes of an athlete’s success. They are the instructors, motivators, teachers and role models for many young athletes and swimmers. That’s why it’s important that SwimOutlet.com partners with organizations like the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA). Every month, we recognize a different coach around the country for their tireless devotion to our sport and its athletes with our SwimOutlet.com Coach of the Month Award.
This month’s SwimOutlet.com Coach of the Month spotlights Bev Buysse, a 7-year coaching veteran at Mishawaka High School, from Mishawaka, IN. Congrats!
Name: Bev Buysse
School: Mishawaka High School
Years Coaching: 7 years
Biggest Team Success: Starting with a team of 8 girls that never swam competitively before and building the team to 32 girls in 3 years and maintaining the numbers on the team to date.
Favorite Thing About Coaching: Taking a new (novice) swimmer and watching their progress through the season and continue through their years in high school. It's teaching the young adults that in any individual sport they are only competing against themselves and not the swimmer next to them. It is all about self improvement (personal records) and the rest will take care of itself.
Favorite Drill for Your Team: It is a sprinting drill where at a set time I sound a siren. The goal is to swim a 25 before the siren goes off. If they don't beat it, they mark where they are in the pool and try to beat that point on the next swim. I find the swimmers give a 100% to this drill.Email Address Invalid.
