“AGON and Coach Gold have helped my daughters confidence in ways I couldn’t imagine. She truly enjoys all of her teammates and has learned a tremendous amount in such a short time.”
“I love this organization and I am so glad they are here at Edgewood and Temujin is a great coach my daughter has improved so much in the short time she has been under his instruction!”
“I can not say enough good things about AGON and coach Temujin. He is a very patient, kind and positive coach. His number one priority is instilling the love of swimming into the kids. My daughter has grown so much as an athlete and a person under his direction.”
“I am so impressed with Coach Gold! I love watching my girls learn technique but still loving to be in the water and miss being in the water on off days. I have recently started swimming in the Masters program and he is so patient and is helping me push myself while coming down to my level (which is a bit low considering I haven’t had a coach for about 15 years). I highly recommend Agon to anyone interested in lessons or competitive swimming. No matter your age, he’s great!”
“With over 16 years of competitive swimming experience, I can say I am very pleased with my experiences so far with team AGON and Coach Gold. Not only are my children swimming, and loving it, I have also stepped back into the pool myself. Coach Gold has helped create workouts for me that are challenging and appropriate for one returning to the water after a 17 year hiatus…I look forward to the years ahead watching the club grow and all the swimmers achieve their goals in and out of the pool.”
