USA Swimming took a stab at naming the top-ten things #CoachesAre always doing or have with them. Tell us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter what your coaches are carrying on deck by using the hashtag #CoachesAre
Throughout April, #CoachesAre will highlight the positive impact our more than 17,000 swim coaches are making across the country.
