From Calhoun City Schools:
Aquatics Center Director, Karney McNear, has made the decision to step down from his current position and coaching responsibilities to pursue other opportunities that will allow him to spend more time with his family. We are extremely appreciative of Coach McNear’s commitment to our student athletes and his efforts to develop the aquatics program during his tenure with Calhoun City Schools. We wish him the best with his future career plans.
We are fortunate to have an internal candidate who can step in and fill the aquatic director’s position as well as coach our student athletes. Coach Charles Todd is currently serving in an instructional support position at Calhoun High School. Coach Todd has extensive coaching and teaching experience, including a Level 5 ASCA coaching certification. He has coached championship programs at Dalton and systems throughout the state of Georgia and is recognized as a leader within the aquatics world. In addition, he has had numerous OT qualifiers including a finalist and NCAA finalist, two current national records, and many GA high school state champions. Other recent honors: 2013 and 2014 Selected to TEAM USA –Junior Coach ( 18 and under); 2013 GHSA State Champions Dalton High School. We are confident that Coach Todd will transition into the role with ease.
Please welcome Coach Todd to the Calhoun Aquatics Center as he takes the reigns as the new director. We look forward to an exciting future for northwest Georgia swimmers and our Calhoun community.
