Suggested Audience: Coaches

Coaches Corner host Mike Murray joins legendary Swim Coach Jim Ellis, the architect of the Philadelphia Department of Recreation (PDR) swim team that cultivated numerous top-ranked age group and senior-level swimmers from the 1970’s through today. Coach Ellis talks about creating an environment where athletes learn to develop a mindset around accountability, resilience, dedication, and hard work. The discussion also touches on the enormous impact Coach Ellis made on both the swimming community and the opportunities he created for inner-city youth. This episode is engaging, power and provides important clarity on how far we have come and where we need to improve our diversity and inclusivity in the sport.
