Marilyn Grindrod Receives Coaching Award

Creating opportunities for swimming

Author Unknown | November 21, 2008

Marilyn Grindrod was a recipient of the 2008 Kerry O'Brien Coaching Award. The following is taken from her nomination letter:

The community of Poulsbo, Wash., offered no opportunities for adult swimmers beyond a few lap-swimming hours until Coach Marilyn Grindrod created the Olympic Aquatic Club Masters. Working with the board of directors of the local USS team, Marilyn secured the pool time and registered the new club with PNA. The word spread quickly and her lanes were soon flowing with triathletes, fitness swimmers, and competitive swimmers. Coach Marilyn is a natural with the Masters swimmers—creating workouts that challenge each swimmer at their own level while maintaining the cohesion of the team. This keen sense of leadership is the making of great Masters coaches.

Congratulations to Coach Marilyn!
