Who Are Your Coaches? 
Please Complete Our Survey 
Of the 138 clubs affiliated with Pacific Masters, there are hundreds of individuals who have declared to USMS their position as swim coaches at their club. Head coaches, assistants, swim teachers, and instructors all play a significant role to enrich our training and development. Yet, really, who are they? And how can we better understand what their specific needs are as they serve our LMSC? Our Club and Coaches Committee think tanks, headed by Stu and Mary Kahn, are looking for answers to these questions. As a first step, please help us identify your coaches here.
