By Fitter and Faster Staff

Coaching Future Olympic Champions

Jason Calanog is the Associate Head Coach at Texas A & M Men’s Swimming. In the past year the Aggie program as blossomed into one of the best up-and-coming teams in the SEC and the NCAA. In 2021, Aggie swimmer Shane Casas won 3 individual titles, the first-ever for the program, and 4th swimmer in NCAA history to win 3 individual events, as Casas notched victories in both backstrokes, and the 200 IM. Calanog is no stranger to leading world-class athletes. From 2007-2015, he arguably worked with 3 of the greatest swimmers in history, helping to develop future Olympic legends, Caeleb Dressel, Ryan Murphy, and Joseph Schooling, as the lead senior coach at the legendary Bolles Prep School & Bolles School Sharks in Jacksonville, Florida; all of whom would eventually win gold medals in the Olympic Games, and reset world records. Throughout the course of his young career he has worked with some of the greatest mentor-coaches in the sport, including Sergio Lopez & Texas A & M Head Coach, Jay Holmes. This episode of Coaches Corner will illustrate the specific characteristics of future Olympic Champions, and shed light on their development, their patience with the process of achievement, and how to help your athletes believe in their dreams! Jason and Mike also discuss key aspects of NCAA recruiting, what college coaches consider in the process, and what parents and swimmers should expect.
