Tommy Law became interested in diving after watching Greg Louganis and Bruce Kimball on ABC's Wide World of Sports. Tommy and his brother spent a lot of time playing around on the boards at Forest Oaks Pool in 1985. Tommy competed in Summer league for two years and high school for three years. Chris Petit, Kirby Weedin, Craig Nolder, Debbie Christiansen, and Stan Randall coached Tommy through the years.
Tommy started coaching as an assistant with San Antonio Divers from 1991 to 1993. He then became Debbie Christiansen's assistant coach at Palo Alto College in 1994. Tommy took over the head coaching position when Debbie received her Masters Degree and moved to Dallas. Tommy has been coaching the Alamo Area Aquatics Team since 1995 and has been coaching high school diving for the Northside Independent School District for the last sixteen years. He has been coaching the divers at the University of the Incarnate Word since 2010. In 2011 he coached an NCAA II national champion. In 2012, Tommy was named TISCA 5-A Diving Coach of the Year.
Tommy Law graduated from John Marshall High School where he held the school diving records for one-meter and three-meter for over seven years. Tommy went on to graduate from the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Secondary Education) and a minor equivalency in Russian. Tommy was a member of Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity from 1990 to 1996.
Tommy married his lovely wife, Elaine, in October 1998 during the "Great Flood". He and Elaine have two dogs, Brooke and Maggie. Elaine is a project manager for Planned Systems International. Tommy's goal is to develop and produce a team of divers that compete nationally and internationally. He is also interested in helping high school divers attain college scholarships through diving.
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.
In the last 5 years, his high school divers have been very successful and made State every year. Divers such as Christopher Law, Nathan Gonzales, Katie Leonard, Maddy Crosby, Nick McCann, Abby Miller are just a few that have finished in top 3 or won State.
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.
