For Immediate Release

Mission Viejo, California…With a focus toward the Paris and Los Angeles Olympics, the Mission Viejo Nadadores have taken a bold step to create a true, athlete-centered Professional/Post Grad Performance Training Center in Mission Viejo.  To lead this dynamic level at the Nadadores’ Swim Club, they’ve hired Jeff Julian, Head Coach of the International Swim League’s (ISL) Cali Condors, USA National Team coach while at the helm of Rose Bowl Aquatics, and former USA National Team member.

 “The Nadadores are thrilled to bring the Julian family to Mission Viejo.  Jeff will help us create, manage, and coach a new pro/post grad level of the program.  His TEAM centered and process focused vision fit seamlessly with the updated “whole athlete” mantra of the Nadadores.  Jeff will focus on this top tier of the program, which is designed to meet most every need of the elite athlete: nutrition, strength training, cryotherapy, sports psychology, professional internships, and dedicated water time.  We believe Jeff will lead the Nadadores to Olympic success in the next two quads and we intend to both support and integrate these athletes into our total programming,” said Executive Director (and former Nadador Olympic Silver Medalist) Michele Mitchell.

As an added punch, 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist, Kristine (Quance) Julian, will also work as a senior coach along with Senior Head Coach, Logan Redondo to build swimmers organically through the program. Kristine, has years of experience, and is a multi-year “ASCA Age Group Coach of the Year.” She will help build the senior program focused on all athletes and all events.

No strangers to success, both are highly decorated coaches with experience leading athletes to championships on numerous different levels, ranging from Junior Nationals to Olympic Trials and most recently to the ISL. Jeff will bring his combined experience of working with elite level athletes on the college and pro side, with the knowledge of building a program like he has over the past 18 years to help establish all sides of the new performance training center.

“I’m honored to be selected by the Mission Viejo Nadadores to help build this visionary center aimed at giving a full focus on post-graduate athletes. We’ve already had some incredible discussions on the possibilities of how we can better serve these athletes in their preparation for elite performances, and I am very excited to get started. Mission Viejo has long been a leader in the swimming world, and this is another exciting step forward,” Jeff Julian said.
