Tim LaRoche

Growing up in central Massachusetts, Tim has been involved in competitive sports since he can remember. Playing football, baseball, and track through high school gave him the opportunity to attend Ithaca College to continue his athletic career. At Ithaca he played both football and baseball while earning a degree in Physical Education and Health. Through a high school football connection, Tim traveled clear across the country to San Diego after graduating college to find work and start a career. During his 6 years in San Diego and two winters in Alta, UT skiing, Tim built his resume as a personal trainer, manager of a private health club and working for a commercial real-estate lender. Although Tim was not looking for a job, a good friend approached him about the opportunity to be one of the first employees of a new start up company called TeamUnify. Learning more about the opportunity he jumped at the chance and in September of 2007 he rode his motorcycle up the West Coast in 4 days to the corporate headquarters; a 3 bedroom house in Bend, OR. Having done everything at TeamUnify, except write code, Tim oversees the Sales and Customer Success departments. When not working Tim enjoys skiing, golfing, mountain biking, riding his motorcycle, and spending with his wife and family.

Do you need some help with your next fundraiser and want to learn how to raise more money? We teamed up with the USA Swimming Foundation to host a Swim-A-Thon Fundraising Workshop at last year's 2016 USAS Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. This workshop featured three rockstar fundraising admins who shared their goals, planning, and secrets to running a prosperous USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon.

I wanted to take a moment out of your busy day to sing the praises of one of your team members, Amanda Studdard.  Last week I had the absolute pleasure of working with Amanda to set up registration and billing on our site.   

–Mark Crouch, Chief Coach Aquabears Swimming Club of Rochdale

As a club we have now been using the TeamUnify web site and team management for about a year and it has made club administration and communication a lot easier and more effective.

Sold The Moment I Saw It

We have had TU up and running in Maxwell Swim Club for over a year now - but after one month we could already see just how many benefits it brought and will continue to bring to our club.

As Treasurer, I was sold on TU from the moment I saw it. My enthusiasm was shared by our Head Coach as she felt it would give her a visibility on her squads that we had never had before.

We are loving MainSet! My staff is very young and eager to learn and try it out. 

I have a new coach on my middle 10-and-under group this season. He is doing a great job, but was struggling with his technique sets. They were pretty random and not achieving any real adaptations.

U.S. Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin and U.S. Paralympic swimmer Brad Snyder are teaming up to Swim for Sight to help cure blindness.

An estimated 39 million people worldwide suffer from blindness.  Of that number, 80 percent of cases are preventable or curable. Sight can be restored to over 50% of that figure with a five minute surgery that has the consummable cost of $25.

I was a bit of skeptic when we first signed up for MainSet. I liked the whole idea, but I'm really a pen and paper kind of person. I like the scribbling part of figuring out a workout and found putting my workout into MainSet an extra step that I didn't always have time for.

Many companies from Walt Disney to Apple, John Deer to eBay all use a system called Net Promoter Score. This systems allows our users to give us feedback on the most essential part of our business, "How likely would you be to recommend TeamUnify to a friend or colleague?"
