Tom returns as the head coach of the Round Rock Dolphins for his 19th season. As Head Coach his goal is to promote the sport of swimming through time improvements and having fun. He believes the purpose of summer league is to grow swimmers as athletes and to help build their confidence through learning and improving strokes in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
