I stopped by Trinity Prep Aquatics to sit down with Rocco Aceto. Rocco was the head coach at Washington State University as well as the assistant at Auburn University. At Auburn, his student-athletes achieved two Olympic gold medals, one NCAA team title, two individual and six relay NCAA titles, one U.S. Open record, one world best record and four World University Games gold medals. In addition, Aceto provided tutelage to 32 NCAA All-Americans. Rocco talks about the importance of developing a complete program and hiring true professionals to handle certain components of his program. He also discusses the importance of implementing strength and conditioning with his junior swimmers.
