3rd Hall of Fame Inductee Announcement
We need your team and your coaches to help us honor the 2021 ISCA Hall of Fame Inductees. We will guarantee anyone who participates in the clinic and learns from the outstanding Coaches and Presenters the fact that you will have a better season because of the information you picked up from this year’s summit. We really want your COACHING STAFF TO PARTICIPATE.
We are now unto our 3rd Inductee, Steve Bultman, Head Women’s Coach at Texas A&M University. In all my years of coaching, I have never come across a Coach, a Parent, or Official that had anything but rave reviews of Steve Bultman as a Coach, a Gentleman, and a true example of what a Swim Coach should strive to be. He is a man of caring, of tremendous knowledge of the sport, and a true innovator in his thinking.
Bultman is a 1970 graduate of LSU where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Psychology. He earned his certification in Physical Education from Tulane in 1975, and he received his master’s in Physical Education from the University of West Florida in 1979. An accomplished swimmer himself, Bultman was a LSU swimming letterman (1969, 1970) and won the Louisiana state title in the 50 freestyle while at Jesuit High School in New Orleans, La.
Steve had Club experience at Lynn Park Piranhas in Louisiana. From there, he coached at Nashville Aquatic. After that, he had a 9-year stint at Greater Pensacola Aquatic Club in Florida, where he put 3 swimmers on the 1988 US Olympic Team (Beth Barr, Andrea Hayes, and Daniel Watters). After he finished at GPAC, he moved on to his last Club Coaching job with Dynamo Swim Club in Atlanta, GA and helped turn it into a successful club, as it continues to be today. After Dynamo he moved on to He moved on to college coaching at the University of Georgia where is was an assistant from 1995-1999.
In 1999, he took over the reigns of the Women’s Swimming and Diving program at Texas A&M. When Bultman was hired at Texas A&M on June 2, 1999, the Aggies had never finished higher than third at the conference championships or in the top 10 at the national meet. Under Bultman, the Aggies have finished lower than second at a conference meet just once and strung together an 11-year streak of top 10 finishes at the NCAA Championships. After four-straight fourth-place finishes at the NCAA Championships from 2013-16, the Aggies tallied their highest NCAA finish ever in 2017 with a third-place effort at the NCAA Championships. A&M put together another great showing at the national meet and eventually took third again in 2018. 
Before his arrival, Texas A&M had never won a conference team title, but now owns Big 12 Conference championship trophies from 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012, claimed four consecutive SEC Championships from 2016-2019. He is also a nine-time conference Coach of the Year, and has earned Coach of the Meet honors seven times. Under his direction, Texas A&M produced its first NCAA individual titles with a pair of wins from Julia Wilkinson and Alia Atkinson at the 2010 NCAA Championships. Since Wilkinson and Atkinson’s breakthrough wins, the Aggies have logged eight more individual crowns — seven by swimmers Cammile Adams, Breeja Larson, Paige Miller and Sarah Henry and one by diver Jaele Patrick.
Steve has been a 2-time USA Olympic Coach. In 2008 he was on the coaching staff for the Estonia Olympic Team. In the 2016 Olympics, he served on the Mexico Olympic Staff. He’s also served on USA Coaching staffs, including the 1985 Pan Pacific Games, the 1989 LEN Cup, the 2001, 2009 and 2015 World University Games and the 2013 World Championships.
Steve is one of the great influencers in USA Swimming, and we are excited to have him as an inductee in the class of 2021 ISCA Hall of Fame.
We have 3 down, and 3 to go for our Inductees. John Urbanchek, Bob Steele, and Steve Bultman. Hope you are excited as we are for who comes up next.
