Coaches Corner: Family Balance; Ash Milad

By Fitter and Faster Staff

Ask any swimming coach in the United States about work-life balance, and they will have a story for you. On this episode of Coaches Corner host Mike Murray and Bellevue Club Swim Team Performance Coach, Ash Milad, sit down for an honest conversation about the challenges that plague the profession of club coaching, and how Ash was moved to make some majors changes in his career in order to prioritize his life as a husband and father.

Learn strategies to help you and your staff manage the challenges associated with running a USA Swimming Club, including time management skills, creating adequate practice & competitive calendars, communication with your partner & staff, allowing yourself the space for family-only time.

This discussion is real, emotional, and seeks to inspire coaches to take control of their time, put a premium on their families, and develop healthy pathways for a more fulfilling existence. This is an episode that you won’t want to miss.
