My name is Spence Royer and I am the new Head Coach for Foley HS/MS Swimming. I am excited about the opportunity to lead the Foley teams and help to build a tradition that we can all be proud of. As with any new endeavor, it will take time and collective effort. However, I am confident that together, we will achieve amazing things. Here is a bit about me:
-Over 25 years of experience in the sport of swimming as an athlete and coach combined
-During my swimming career: Qualified and placed at the LSC, Sectional and Zone levels, earned All-State awards (Lafayette- St. Louis, MO) and collegiate All-American awards (Drury-Springfield, MO).
-Have coached summer league, middle school, high school and USA Swimming teams
-For the past 6-years I served as Head Coach for Sevier Aquatic Club (USA) as well as Sevier County High School. Sevier County Middle School and The King's Academy High School swimming programs in TN
-I have had the privilege of working with athletes who have earned qualifying times and numerous awards at the LSC (Ozark and Southeastern), ESSZ Sectionals, and TN High School and Middle School levels
I look forward to meeting everyone soon and starting the 2022-2023 season. There will be a team meeting on Wednesday June 29th at Foley High School 5:00 PM open to all FHS/FMS Swimming parents and athletes. We will meet in the main lobby and then find a place where we can sit down. The purpose of the meeting is a meet and greet and to discuss the upcoming season. Coach Christensen, the Foley Assistant Athletic Director, will also be in attendance on the 29th. GO LIONS!!!
