|Hi everyone !
As of May 19, 2019 I have officially retired from WAAC as head coach. It has been a
GRRRREAT 26 + years I have coached WAAC. But at this time I am ready to step down
and EZZZ on in to retirement. I will still be coaching HS & MS for the next year
2019-2020 - after that it is year to year.
As most of you know I have 5 grand kids, several motorcycles, and yes a wife of which I
want to spend more time with :)
Plus travel on my cycle & get back into Triathlon shape :)
I ALSO WANT TO THANK SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY PEOPLE
WHO HAVE BEEN KEY IN HELPING WAAC GROW FROM 22 KIDS, 26 YEARS AGO TO
THE TOP CLUB IT IS TODAY. MANY HAVE TOLD ME I BUILT A GREAT TEAM - I HOPE I
HAD A POSITIVE PART IN IT AND KNOW I GAVE IT MY HEART AND EFFORT.
BUT AS I SAID MANY ALSO GAVE A LOT, FROM PETE RICH, SHIRLEY FAIR, JUDY
PLOY, THE CHERMERS, AND CARVLIN FAMILIES WHO WERE FOLKS THAT GOT ME
DOWN HERE TO WA. TO FOLKS THROUGH OUT THE 26 YEARS IT WAS A T E A M
EFFORT AND NO WAY COULD I EVER HAVE ACHIEVED WITHOUT MANY HELPING OUT
COUNTLESS HOURS. THE MANGIS FAMILY, CUNNINGHAM FAMILY, NIZNIK FAMILY,
GANNON FAM, TOKARSKI GANG, AND MY BEST FRIEND PAUL BURGESS AND FAM.
I COULD LIST MANY MORE FAMILIES AS I SAID MANY MANY INVOLVED OVER THE 26
YEARS. ALONG WITH COACHES WHO MADE CONTRIBUTIONS OVER MANY
SEASONS. THE BEST AND BIGGEST HELP FOR MANY SEASONS WAS COACH
ANGELA POST WHO WAS A SUPER COACH FOR US AND GREAT NAVIGATOR AND
FRIEND TO ME.
SO THANKS TO MANY THROUGH THE UPS AND DOWNS - I TRULY APPRECIATE ALL
OF YOUR HELP & FRIENDSHIP :)
GOD BLESS ALL AND HAVE GREAT LIVES AHEAD !
I know I will miss WAAC but I know it's time to move on.
Plus timing is good in the sense we were able to work the timing out to have a very
good Coach step in and take my place. With new energy and great desire to make our
TEAM even better I know Coach Courtney will lead WAAC to great success. Courtney
our BOARD & the TEAM will certainly go through some changes, challenges, and need
to adapt new policies that better fit her goals as the new head coach of WAAC. I am
very confident in Coach Courtney and know if our team supports her she will lead our
swimmers to great high standards and success.
