2023 Coaches


Clyde Smith

Hello! My name is Clyde Smith. A former swimmer (anything but breaststroke) current swim coach and a family man.  I have a wife (non-swimmer) and 6 children all of them not swimming. Athletes outside the pool, I guess.  We also have 2 dogs (husky and a pound puppy) and a cat (that my wife was gracious enough to let us rescue). Needless to say our house is full. I like to consider myself a laid back kind of guy but my swimmers know when we need to get the work done. I have coached in South Dakota, Kansas and Virginia. I grew up in Lynchburg and swam with the YMCA Piranhas and Peakland Otters. So, I am back to my roots here in Lynchburg. My brother and I have swim records here in Virginia. Some have been broken while some have not.
