Ross Munson is excited to be returning to KVAC after being the club’s head coach from 2004-2016. He was the assistant coach for the Men’s & Women’s swimming and diving team at Alfred University for eight seasons. While he enjoys working with college athletes, he looks forward to the excitement that comes with introducing younger athletes to the sport. Ross believes that success in swimming comes from a strong base of individual attention, dedication, and hard work. His program is one based on technique, not yards. Swimmers will better themselves individually based on their improved technique, combined with hard work in the pool. Hope to see you at the pool!
