Jonty Skinner is currently in the process of developing his own consulting business called

Athletic Intelligence Consulting.  Prior to that he worked as USA Swimming’s Director of the National Team’s Performance Science & Technology department from 2000 – 2008 in which he coordinated all the testing tracking and assessment of the National Team athletes. In addition he was in charge of organizing technical support for National Team coaches and athletes at national and international competitions, and overseeing the framework of communication that delivers information to the coaching population.


From 1994-2000 Skinner served as USA Swimming’s Resident Team Coach, which involved coaching some of the nation’s top swimmers at the elite national and international level.  Prior to his arrival at USA Swimming, Skinner served head coach of the men’s and women’s swimming teams at the University of Alabama.  Under Skinner’s guidance both the men’s and women’s swimming programs finished in the top 10 nationally in 1994.  That same year Skinner won the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Women’s Coach of the Year award.


From 1981-1988, Skinner served as head coach at the San Jose Aquatic club, where he won five junior national championship team titles and one national championship team title. 

Skinner has coached various athletes to 18 national titles, 17 Olympic gold medals (20 Total) and he has produced two Kipputh Award winners. During his swimming career, Skinner captured four national titles and was the world record holder in the 100m freestyle from 1976 to 1981.  In 1986 he was recognized by the swimming world when he was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame.

Born in Cape Town, South Africa and a graduate of the University of Alabama, Skinner currently resides with his wife Carolyn in Monument, Colorado.  He has two competitive soccer playing daughters named Cleone and Cydney.

Goals of the program:

  • The main goal of the program is to bring the impact of the brain into the forefront of the sporting community.  Whether that be the impact of cognitive self talk or developing neural pathways that lead to success, getting the word out is the primary focus of the program.
  • My background of international success as an athlete, international success as a coach, and the management of sport science services at the international level has given me a unique blend of experience that serves as my foundation.  Using all that background in conjunction with extensive reading on brain function has led me to understand the true impact that brain training can have on performance.  Putting that into everyday language and everyday tools that fit your environment and culture will be the essence of what I will share with you.
