Coach Details
Coach: Erica Quam
Company: The Coaching Experience
Location: Bellingham, WA
E-Mail: [email protected]

The Coaching Experience offers technical video analysis using the latest technology as utilized by the US Olympic team in the London Olympics.  Erica will work with you on whatever technical aspect of your swimming you need help with ranging from triathlons and open water races to swimming events, and keeping you healthy by having good habits when you swim for recreation.  Partner video footage with expert analysis helps you see your stroke and connect what you are feeling with what you are actually doing in the water.  As you fine-tune your stroke and begin to develop a better feel for the water, you will improve efficiency and swim faster without working harder.  If you are not located in the Bellingham area, send us your footage for analysis and expert advice to improve your stroke today.
The Coaching Experience also offers training programs to help give you a background and progress you through your season to achieve peak performances.  Choose from a basic workout plan to an individualized training program.


The Coaching Experience specializes in swim training for triathlons, open water, or masters events from the beginner to the expert.  I also work with recreational swimmers who want to stay healthy while maintaining a weekly swimming routine.  Contact me and let me know your goals and I'll let you know how I can help.


Erica Quam coached Division I Collegiate Swimming for 15 years including 5 Olympic and World Championship medalists, and 28 NCAA All-Americans.  She led the Cougars of Washington State University from 2002-2011 competing in the PAC-12 Conference - THE toughest conference in the nation.
Erica grew up swimming in Roanoke, Virginia and went on to compete for the Indiana University Hoosiers specializing in the Breaststroke and Individual Medley events.  She was a two-time team captain and earned the Ailene Robinson Award for Mental Toughness her junior year.  After college, Erica moved to Dallas, Texas as the assistant coach for the women's team at Southern Methodist University.  During her tenure the Mustangs placed in the top 4 at the NCAA Championships 4 out of her 5 years.  Erica also coached and trained with the Dallas Aquatic Masters Team led by former World Record-holder, Jim Montgomery.  She began training for and competing in triathlons, adventure races, and open water races including the legendary Maui Channel Swim and Waikiki Roughwater Swim.  Now living in Bellingham, Washington she opened The Coaching Experience in January 2012 and is blending all of her talents together to offer an array of services.
