Tualatin Hills Barracudas: History

www.barracudas.org, $reference.date [cached]

Headline on the July/August Barracuda newsletter: BILL VOLCKENING - NEW THB HEAD COACH. A lifelong--32 years--New Jersey resident, Bill visited Portland in early August, was interviewed by the search committee, attended a board meeting, and led both a morning and a mid-day workout, after which he was offered--and accepted--the coaching position. His background includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in photography and a Masters degree (MFA) in studio art, experience in desk top publishing, coaching age-group swimmers, membership in U.S. Masters and participation in nine USMS National Championships, competing in freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly, individual medley, and relay events. The contract agreed to by Bill and the Board specifies that he will be responsible for morning, mid-day, and evening workouts. For the first time the Barracuda contract with a coach includes a probationary period of six months with two evaluations, the first at three months and the second at six months. An evaluation committee consisting of President Jeanne Teisher, Sandi Rousseau, Judy Beaston, Lois Allan, and Shane Spell is to meet with Bill after three three months and again at six months.

...
Bill took over coaching duties for morning, mid-day, and evening workouts. He also competed with Barracudas for the first time, swimming in the Hagg Lake Open Water Swim.
...
In November, the evaluation committee met with Bill after all Barracudas had the opportunity to assess his performance by sending e-mail or telephoning Jeanne.

Inspired by the need of a recently widowed swimmer, Bill compiled a cookbook, "Food for Thought," from easy-to-prepare recipes volunteered by several Barracudas. Design of a web page has been undertaken by Bill and Shane Spell.
...
Bill prepared designs, and Shane published the updated web site.
...
Bill has advanced from the ASCA (American Swimming Coach Association) Level 3 Masters certification to Level 4.
...
He also set a new USMS national record for the 50 fly - 42.5. Bill completed the test for ASCA Level 5 Masters certification, and joined a very small group to ever achieve Level 5, which is ASCA's highest rating.
...
Bill Volckening won the 1500 free.

...
Our newsletter, "The Barracuda Bulletin," which Bill produces, was presented the 1999 USMS Newsletter of the Year Award. The Barracudas are the smallest club ever to win the award, and the first to use a "PDF" e-mail delivery system. Bill was also presented with a Special Appointment to the USMS Board of Directors as USMS Editor for SWIM Magazine.
...
A free video clinic with Bill at the Sunset pool was held on October 10th. October 17th was the date for the 20th annual Pentathalon. The early date was proposed by Bill as a way to have the event correspond with the Minnesota Masters Postal Pentathlon.
