USA Swimming Appoints a New President

He was part of the swimming team at the University of California-Irvine during his days in college.

 

Hinchey said that he didn’t believe that he would ever be offered such a high rank in the swimming sector. He even thought that it was a joke when the recruitment company called him. Tim is a hard working individual and has dedicated a lot of efforts to ensure the success of Rapids. He has devoted himself to making it a professional sports club and has worked with it in the good and bad years. Hinchey said that he could not turn down the new job offer since he has been longing for such a position throughout his career.
