Coach Cimino has been coaching this High School swim team for years. She deserves recommendation because of her emphasis on good sportsmanship and strong team unity and identity. In one of the early practices, she had the kids tread water while they each took turns saying something positive about another swimmer on the team. While the kids are learning each other's names at the beginning of the school year, they are also raising each other up!
Teambuilding, hard work and respect for themselves and others is a hallmark of Coach Cimino's and of her coaching partner, Coach Gramm. The team consistently cheers for opposing team members who could use a little encouragement - even during competitive meets! Our family and other parents are so impressed with Coach Cimino's approach. We are so thankful for her warmth and expertise. And we are 4-0 this season so far!
