EPISODE 7 - Brent Arckey on Coaching Ryan Lochte and Sustaining Excellence in Sarasota

Today I had a great conversation with Brent Arckey, head coach of the Sarasota Sharks.  We spoke about how his team was handling the Covid-19 situation (1:39); his story from successful age group swimmer to swimming for the University of Alabama to bagging groceries at Publix to eventually working his way up to coaching Ryan Lochte and several other high performing athletes at the University of Florida; to eventually becoming the Head Coach of the Sarasota Sharks (7:15); what makes a great coach (18:05); the lessons he learned from coaching 8 & unders and Olympians concurrently (20:26); what made the Sharks so strong from 2010-2014 (25:02); what they're focusing on to continue to sustain excellence (28:55); his incorporation of resistance training into their program (35:00); and what separates elite swimmers from the rest (38:11); and much more!
