"If you are looking for a seasoned and competent swim professional, who is the epitome of coaching caliber excellence, I highly recommend Adam Hendren. In addition to being a coach with the KING Aquatic Swim Club based in the Seattle area since December 2012, he has coached for many years summer outdoor swim leagues, in addition to providing private, semi-private, and group instruction to swimmers of all ages and skill levels.
When providing instruction, Coach Hendren customizes the training to meet the swimmer’s learning styles and development stages. Based on the swimmer’s skill level, he will tailor the instruction on an individualized basis. He uses different approaches including technology, state of the art visual aids, and interactive demonstration. In while safety and developing the swimmer to advance from ready-to-learn-swim programs to perhaps prepare them to join a competitive swim team, Coach Hendren’s desire is for all his swimmers to first and foremost have fun and enjoy being in the water.
Coach Hendren impresses the importance of the relationship between swimmer and coach. He acts on four key qualities of a good swimmer-coach relationship: trust, commitment, communication and confidence. If his students are willing to trust his advice, commit to the instruction he is providing, communicate their goals and develop a positive, can-do attitude, they will see productive outcomes, all while fostering a close bond with him.
For the past 4 years, my daughter has worked with Coach Hendren in a team setting, and on an individual basis, receiving coaching and private instruction that developed and continually enhances her technical swim technique, performance, speed, and endurance in the sport of swimming. Furthermore, he has instilled in her self- confidence and continually challenges her to discover her full potential and talent all while providing guidance in leadership development and goal setting.
Coach Hendren is punctual and reliable, flexible to work with the swimmer’s schedule, an effective communicator, and comes fully prepared to the lesson all while making it a fun experience. He is genuine, caring, authentic, and a positive role model."
