APS Diving Instructor Named Coach of the Year

APS Diving Coach Jimmy Price recently earned the 2019 EMAC League Coach of the Year for his excellence in student aquatics.

“I am honored to receive this award,” said Price. “This recognition is a testament to my team’s outstanding performance this year.”

Price joined APS in 1977 and became the district’s Aquatics Coordinator in 2011. He oversees the aquatic program at Aurora Central, Gateway, Hinkley and Rangeview.

Price has loved aquatics ever since he was a kid and hopes to inspire students to follow their dreams.

“I want my students to pursue their passions and go as far as they can with swimming and diving,” said Price.

He received the prestigious coaching award at the 2019 EMAC League Diving Championships earlier this year.

Congratulations, Jimmy!
