A native of Austin, Texas, Coach Stan Randall grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and attended Ohio State University. He moved to San Antonio in 1995 and has been the director of the Alamo Area Aquatics Association diving program since that time. There, he has been preparing and developing top-level athletes for a future in university diving or careers in teaching the sport by way of his mentor program for prospective coaches. Coach Randall is truly one of the United States elite age group diving coaches, having developed many local, state, national, and international diving champions. Stan has 43 years of coaching experience, with his earliest national level success coming in 1974 (and again in 1976) when he had divers selected for the United States Junior Olympic teams. He has coached numerous members of various United States National diving teams since that time. In 1982, Coach Randall had his first double international gold medallist at the Can-Am-Mex Games. He was also the recipient of the United States Age Group Coach-of-the-Year Award that same year. His internationally famous Red Roof Inn diving team won the U.S. national team title in 1984 and again in 1986. In 1986, Coach Randall was selected to be the United States national team coach responsible for taking an American diving team that competed in Aachen, West Germany. Two years later, he was appointed the U.S. senior diving coach for a national team trip to Moscow, Russia (the former U.S.S.R.). Since then, Stan has coached American teams at international meets in Sweden, Austria, Mexico, England, Canada, and Switzerland. He has also conducted training camps and clinics in Rio De Janerio, Brazil; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Montreal, Quebec; Sweden; Austria; and Denmark.Apart from his love for the sport of diving, Stan’s hobbies include horseback riding, photography, and backpacking. Much to his joy he can do all of these here in San Antonio and it’s surrounding countryside.
