USA Swimming, the national swimming committee and governing body for the sport in the US has announced that it will be appointing the former Executive Director of College Swimming Coaches of America (CSCAA) as the organization’s Managing Director of Sports Development.
Shinofeld has formerly participated in races, both at a club level and a college level where he has fulfilled roles of college coach, professor and director of aquatic sports during his early years.
Supporting the local college swimming
During his time CSCAA, Shinofeld was able to develop the sport at a grassroots level. He supported the local college swimming programs. He also ensured that they received proper attention and funding from the government and various sports committees.
CSCAA has expressed their best wishes for the organization’s departing director. It acknowledged that he will be a hard act to follow, a task that shall be undertaken by the company’s new interim director Greg Earhart.
USA Swimming hopes that Shinofeld will be able to help develop and support the sport. Especially at a grassroots level as he has done in the past and connect the sport from junior programs all the way up to professional levels.
