Coaching Staff

Patrick D Norman

Head Coach / President

Patrick started coaching in April of 2002 with the Lawrence Aquahawks .  His early years allowed him to grow as a deck coach and position himself for an opportunity with Duke City Aquatics as Head Senior Coach.  With Duke, he furthered his passion for coaching and managed additional administrative responsibilities.  He was able to coach his first Senior National qualifier, grow pool numbers and help lead Duke City Aquatics to second place at the New Mexico State Championships.
 
A move in 2007 brought Patrick back to Lawrence to coach the Bronze, Platinum and Senior groups for the Aquahawks.  In 2008, he assumed the role of Head Age Group Coach.  He helped implement important programs including Weekly Updates, Aquabucks, Group Testing, Challenge Sets and Start and Turn Clinics. During this time, he was also able to coach multiple team record holders.

Patrick is the longest tenured club coach in Lawrence with 10+ years of experience in town. In the summer of 2010, he started Ad Astra Area Aquatics with the idea that the club would be Athlete Centered, Coach Directed and Parent Supported.  He also runs a lesson program, The Lawrence Swim School.

Patrick lives in Lawrence with his wife Katie, two children, Elle and Jay, and step son Ryan.  Patrick is a graduate of the University of Kansas, where he swam competitively.  Patrick grew up swimming under Jim Sheridan of Donner Swim Club in Columbus, Indiana.
