A Note from Coach John
What brings you to AGUA Masters?
I have been blessed to lead a life aquatic, spent in and around water more than on land. I surf, spearfish, free dive, and swim. Some of my favorite jobs have been as a whitewater guide, life guard, and swim coach. Swimming has always been my foundation. It has taught me lessons in fellowship, perseverance, and courage that have served me throughout my life. Swimming has given me a career, a sense of purpose, health, and joy—I can’t wait to see what gifts it has yet to give. 

As we move into the new year, I encourage you to reflect on your own swimming journey. What brings you to Masters swimming? What gifts has it given you? We would love to hear your answers, and discover more about what brings our community together. If you would like to share with the team (and we hope that you do), please take a moment respond to a few quick questions.

As always, if you have questions, my door is open. Please feel free to email me at [email protected].

See you at the pool,

–Coach John
