ISCA To Induct Dudley Duncan & Mark Schubert into Hall of Fame

 In Coaches Clinic

ISCA’s 8th Annual Hall of Fame Coaches Clinic is slated for August 23-26, 2017 in Clearwater, Florida. This year’s inductees are Dudley Duncan of Quest Swimming and Mark Schubert of Mission Viejo.

We asked Rada Owen and Leigh Ann Fetter-Witt to reflect on being coached by these two legends.

“Dudley was such an influential coach for me because he really instilled the importance of technique, and developing the fundamentals of swimming. To this day, I use many of the drills I did with him for my own young swimmers. He also established the importance of overall fitness; he would lead us on runs and our dryland workouts, and more often than not, put us young swimmers to shame.
 
Dudley was also incredibly good at establishing a bond between our swimmers and it was the first time I really understood what it meant to be a part of a team.  He would organize activities for our senior group outside of the pool, and those were crucial to our team becoming incredibly close, and to this day, those are some of the best memories I have from my swimming career.” – Rada Owen

“I met Mark Schubert for the first time when he became the Women’s Head Coach at the University of Texas, where I was swimming. I had heard rumors about how he was a notoriously tough, distance coach. I thought, so why is he coming to one of the best sprint programs in the country. I am surely going to be in trouble. I soon found out that he wasn’t just a great distance coach, he could actually coach sprinters as well!  He encouraged me to keep a log book while I was swimming and write comments about my training/workouts. In doing this, it made me learn so much more about who I was and what I felt I needed as a sprinter. I truly became a student of the sport. Mark asked if I would ever consider coaching as a profession and the “bug” was placed. From that moment on, (and for almost 30 years now) that’s what I’ve done. Mark has had such a great influence on me both as a swimmer and now as a coach, I truly owe a lot of thanks to him. I am so very proud to call him a close friend.” – Leigh Ann Fetter-Witt
