One of the first jobs I had was as Head Coach of the Riverside/North Harbor Swim Team. I coached there for six great years and created some great memories. During my time there, we used to hold a swim-a-thon to raise money for various causes in the community and it was always a great event for the kids. After I left the team, all of the kids I worked with became the coaches and continued on with similar programs that we put in place during my time. When I reached out to some of the team parents and coaches with the idea for a charity for their swim-a-thon, they jumped at the opportunity.

It was great to see the kids hanging onto every word Kyle said and the encouragement he sent to them to continue to provide for more kids. It was very special to see the young kids that I had once coached speaking so highly of Kyle and turning their charity giving towards us.

The swim-a-thon was a tremendous success and the team raised more money than ever before! We even had one of the former swim team moms jump in and raise over $1,500! We cannot thank those in the community who help us continue to grow and reach our goals. John Wooden said it best with his quote, "You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you."
Thank you to all the coaches, swimmers and parents of The Riverside/North Harbor Swim Teams.
