USA Swimming took a stab at naming the top-ten things #CoachesAre. Tell us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter what coaches are to you using the hashtag #CoachesAre
Throughout April, #CoachesAre will highlight the positive impact our more than 17,000 swim coaches are making across the country.
1. #CoachesAre fundamentalists
(The Office, NBC)
Coaches are sticklers for teaching the fundamentals of swimming.
2. #CoachesAre motivators
(New Girl, FOX)
Someone needs to motivate swimmers during those early morning practices...
3. #CoachesAre able to make practice fun
(Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, DreamWorks via YouTube)
But at least those early morning practices might end with a fun game or drill!
4. #CoachesAre leaders
(Major Payne, Universal Pictures )
And coaches generally know best.
5. #CoachesAre always challenging you to be great
(Parks and Recreation, NBC)
And that goes for inside and outside of the pool
6. #CoachesAre fans of fitness
(HeavyWeights, Walt Disney Pictures)
Particularly those dry-land workouts
7. #CoachesAre mentors
(The Karate Kid, Columbia Pictures)
They always have a reason for doing what they are doing.
8. #CoachesAre your biggest fan
(Friday Night Lights, NBC)
Who else would be this excited that you got to the wall first?
9. #CoachesAre making you a better teammate
(The Mighty Ducks, Walt Disney Pictures)
Because swimmers always (butter)fly together.
10. #CoachesAre fans of the Triple Lindy
(Back To School, Orion Pictures)
I mean....who isn't?
