New South Davis Head Coach!

Here are some changes that are happening on the team...

Well this announcement is bittersweet. My family and I will be moving out of state in a few weeks for my husband to take up a new role in the Nebraska government.

This is an exciting and heartbreaking decision for us. I feel great loss leaving the team. I have been a member of South Davis Masters for 9 years and it has become part of my identity as a swimmer and coach. I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to lead this team.

We have had great growth both in numbers and in solidarity. We have all experienced tragedy together and feel the benefits of community as we have learned to rely on one another.

My goal in leading this team is for it to become more than just a group of individuals swimming together. It has become a force for good in our community and a place to find relief from the stresses of life.


Many of you know of my trademarked ‘angry swims’  and the times where I decide to slowly kick and talk rather than complete the set of 200s. The lanes of the pool have become a place to laugh, cry and try to not let the lane next to you get ahead. Thank you for your love, support and funny memes. I am going to miss you all much more than I even know now. 

With the sad comes some good news! I am happy to announce that Aaron Norton will be the new Head Coach of South Davis Masters! Aaron has been a joyful and fun member of our team and will be a great leader to take the team to further growth.

Aaron is originally from Evanston, WY and grew up swimming and competing. He swam as a freestyle sprinter for the University of Utah and served an LDS mission to Colombia, South America. He and his wife Tracie are the proud parents to their son Spencer,16, who attends Farmington High School. Aaron works as an Environmental Analyst for Rocky Mountain Power.  

Aaron is currently the President of Utah Masters, a member of the Northwest Zone board and generally a really nice guy! From his famous Fickle Fingers set (I really don’t like calling it that) and his depth of swimming knowledge I know he will be a great leader for this team. 

With that, I want you all to know how much I love you.  South Davis Masters has become a tribe of friends that just so happen to swim together. We also get a little competitive too…

You all now have a friend and a place to stay in Nebraska. 

Much love, 
Coach Blair

Critical Swim Speed Test RESULTS!

June 2018

We have the results of our beginning of summer CSS Test! The Critical Swim Speed test is a great measure of swimming performance and will help tailor interval workouts to improve your overall speed! 

This test will help identify where your lactate threshold is and allow you to train to your abilities, which will overtime and good training sessions increase.
