Nick Skorut


Nick fell in love with swimming as a freshman in high school. His older brother helped motivate him to move into the upper lanes of their high school practice group. He became hooked on the satisfaction of self-improvement, and worked over the next year to qualify for state for Hillcrest High School. His coaching experience started after his sophomore year, when he began coaching himself during the summer as a non-USA club swimmer.  


In college, he joined the University of Utah Club Swim Team, where under Coach Will Reeves he set numerous team records and earned a second place finish in the 50 yard backstroke at College Club Swimming Nationals. He worked to improve his swimming during the summer of 2019 with the help of Swim Utah coaches Ian Clarke and Dusty Ragland. He achieved 5 top 5 finishes at the 2019 USMS National Championship, including a Masters Nationals title in the 50 m Backstroke.


He began to coach at the club level for Swim Utah in the fall of 2019. After Covid he returned to coaching for Rowland Hall High School and Skyline Swim Club. Outside of the pool he enjoys lifting weights, learning languages, and staying up to date on sports science research.
