SwimMAC adds to North Region staff

Sarah Holman was hired by SwimMAC Carolina’s North Region as the coach of the Bronze and Shark divisions.
Holman has nine years’ coaching experience at the club and college levels. Most recently, she was head coach at the Danville (Ky.) Swim Club and an assistant coach at Centre College (Ky.).
“From teaching drills for so many years, I’ve developed and honed in being able to explain the drills and techniques in a way that makes sense to each age group I am coaching,” Holman said in a statement released by SwimMAC Carolina. “This ability to adapt to any group allows the swimmers to pick up on the changes quickly and get quicker results.”
In her SwimMAC assignments, Holman, a former middle school teacher, will be working with 13- and 14-year-old swimmers. Having served in leadership roles for Kentucky’s swimming programs, age group chair for the Kentucky Swimming Board of Directors (2004-209) and Kentucky Zone Team Coach (2004-08), Holman grew familiar with SwimMAC.
“There is a wonderful tradition of producing amazing athletes and coaches (at SwimMAC),” she said. “With Coach David Marsh’s vision and all of the phenomenal staff and members to implement those ideas, I really wanted to be part of SwimMAC’s future.”
