He doesn't seem to care about anything and gives little effort. He will tell us at practice to "go faster" and when his swimmers ask for advice and how, he responds with "find a way". He's a coach. He needs to give us tips and help us. He is disrespectful and closed minded. He is hard to talk to about things. He is horrible with communication

He claims to be very knowledgeable of the sport, but this knowledge is only conveyed to his favorites. He is difficult to communicate with, and he is too passive. He does not keep his team accountable and the continuously poor results from the men's team proves this. He needs to change if things are to improve, but it's clear he won't do that

Steve is an outdated coach that refuses to change with the times. His methods are repetitive and relatively ineffective. If you are not on Steve's list of favorites, he hates you and will make it know he doesn't like you.

Steve is an excellent recruiter, but he is a horrible coach. He makes his swimmers feel small and unimportant. He pretends to be invested but it is clear he truly does not care. He only pays attention to swimmers on scholarships and ignores the rest of the team.

Coach Potsklan is a nice guy. However, his coaching abilities need dramatic improvement. His greatest coaching flaw is his inability to adapt to the ever-evolving sport. The improvement in the team this year is due to an attitude change from within the team, and had very little to do with Coach Potsklan. I do not recommend swimming his program.

Steve is a nice guy, but not a good coach. Does not motivate the team and gives off the impression that he does not care about the team. It is very difficult to get a straight answer from him and at times it is hard to get along with him. Either he needs to make a U-turn in terms of his coaching or he needs to be fired.
