About the author

Emmett Hines is one of the top masters swimming coaches in the nation. He is one of only 13 coaches to hold the level 5 Masters certification, the American Swim Coaches Association's (ASCA) highest adult coaching certification. In 2002 he received the Masters Aquatic Coaches Association Lifetime Achievement Award. He also was honored as the U.S. Masters Swimming Coach of the Year in 1993. Hines has been coaching in some form since the age of 14. The director and head coach of H2Ouston Swims, Hines has coached adult swimmers for more than 25 years--from beginners to those with Olympic pedigrees. He has conducted clinics across the country and internationally as a senior coach for Total Immersion Swim Camps, the world's most widely known and respected organization for adult swimming instruction.

Hines' articles have been featured in Swim Magazine, he writes a monthly column for Runner Triathlete News, and he has published over 200 articles in swimming and triathlon magazines and newsletters. He has spoken at the ASCA World Coaches Clinic and Pacific Coaches Clinic, two of the largest professional swim coaches' gatherings in the world. Swimmers under his guidance have won numerous team and individual national championship titles and set numerous national and world records. Hines has served as the assistant USMS editor for Swim Magazine, editor of the Masters Aquatic Coaches Association (MACA) newsletter, and editor of Gulf Masters Swim Committee (GMSC) newsletter.

Throughout all of his swim-related activities, Hines seeks to use his creativity and humor to expand the world of adult swimming while improving the knowledge and skill of swimmers and instructors alike.

His wife, Peggy, is a swim coach as well, and both of his boys are fish. Aside from swimming, the whole family is actively involved in competitive target archery.
