Matt Olschner speaking event

"Matt has been working with my son for over 7 years now and has been nothing short of amazing. He is able to push my son to be a stronger swimmer and when he gets resistance he asks questions from every angle to be able to verbally work through what the resistance is and go beyond it."

​"He not only coaches about the physical aspects of swimming but helps coach the student mentally. His rapport with kids is amazing and he treats them like adults while still respecting the fact they are children and need to be kids."

- Jennifer Brooking

"Coach Matt's quality of coaching is unmatched. Whether he is coaching one-on-one or a full class, he makes sure no student walks away without at least one valuable nugget of advice regarding their stroke!"

"My son has incredible respect for Coach Matt and he intends to keep him as his coach throughout his swimming career. Without question, regarding Coach Matt's philosophy of coaching, my son has a bright future in swimming competitively! He helped bring out my son's natural talent, instilled a strong disciplined work ethic and helped hone his swim technique that typically is seen in much older athletes."
