James Holder is entering his fifth season at the helm of the Georgetown University men's and women's swimming & diving program, where he has guided his student-athletes to breaking over 50 school records and a team silver medal at the 2013-14 BIG EAST Swimming & Diving Championships.
Holder arrived at Georgetown from Princeton University where he served as an assistant coach with the Tigers for five seasons.
Holder has been a part of four Ivy League Championships in his five seasons and has coached nine NCAA qualifiers as well as eight All-Americans. Last year, the Tigers went 7-0 in dual meets and won the 2010 Ivy League Championship defeating second-place Harvard by more than 200 points, the team also spent time in the national rankings.
At Princeton, Holder worked primarily with the sprint, middle distance and stroke groups developing workouts that included swimming, strength and aerobic conditioning. He also advised his student-athletes in technique and mental preparation for races. Holder worked extensively with both the men's and women's squads during practice and at meets.
Holder served as the main recruiter on the staff identifying athletes and assisting them throughout the recruiting process. One of his recent recruiting classes for the Tigers was among the top five in the nation according to CollegeSwimming.com.
Throughout his time at Princeton, Holder worked a number of camps including stints at Michigan University Swim Camp and Kenyon College Total Performance Swim Camp.
Holder was a two-time All-Ivy League swimmer for the Tigers. He set a school record in the 400-meter freestyle and was named team captain as a senior. Holder earned a degree in history in 2000.
Following a career in finance, Holder came back to swimming in 2005 and joined the Tiger staff. He is currently completing a master's degree in sports psychology from Temple University.
