www.barracudas.org, 28 Aug 2012 [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.
