March Interscholastic Coach of the Month Award
Coaches are the backbone of any swim team. They offer motivation, support, advice, praise and criticism.
Without a swim coach, many swimmers might not have the self-discipline and determination necessary to achieve success.
For that reason, SwimOutlet.com has teamed up with the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) – the organization of high school swim coaches – to celebrate a monthly SwimOutlet.com Interscholastic Coach of the Month Award.
For March, we would like to acknowledge coach Kris Jones from Richmond, Texas who has been a dedicated coach for seven years.
Name: Kris Jones
School: Foster High School
City: Richmond, TX
Years Coaching: 7
Biggest Team Success: 2009 Men’s Regional Champions
Favorite Thing About Coaching: Watching the “light bulb” come on. That moment when my swimmer(s) realize that all of the drills, technique work, long hours and countless laps come together and they hit that peak.
Favorite Drill for Your Team: I’m a big fan of taking it back to the basics. Fingertip drag, Popov, etc. and any other drill that can break down the stroke and make if faster and more efficient.
Congratulations, Coach Kris!

7 years ago.Hello!
I have a question about the tech suits. My daughter is 13, almost 14 and loves long distance swimming...500, 1000, and the mile.
Which tech suit is the best for distance swimming.

7 years ago.I think it's awesome when people learn how to swim at an early age -- and schools and communities work together to help this happen. Coaches of any kind can make the difference for a person - no matter what their age! I grew up in Brooklyn, NY -- my schools did not have pools or swim teams -- while i learned how to 'tread water' at an early age and loved the beach and any time I could get into a pool it wasn't until May of 2013 that I learned the proper freestyle stroke! I joined the Y and I joined a local triathlon club -- I had booked my first Tri (sprint) for that summer but didn't yet know how to swim. The Tri team had many awesome people willing to 'coach' me -- turns out two of them were actual coaches and I found a long lost cousin who is a triathlon swim coach whom I've not met yet! But she has given me advice though email and phone calls. All I can say is YAY to all the coaches out there who tirelessly put devoted effort into helping their students (no matter what their age -- end of march i will be 48). Coaches helped me believe in myself. If a coach can do that - then that is a coach worthy of much firstname.lastname@example.org
