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.
