Baylor Swim Club / Baylor School Head Coach Dan Flack will lead the USA Men’s National Junior Team at the Junior Pan Pacific Championships Aug. 23-27 at the Damodar Aquatic Center in Suva, Fiji. Coach Flack has served on a number of National Junior Team staffs, and most recently last summer as an assistant coach on the FINA World Junior Team.

Flack has placed five Baylor athletes on the USA Swimming National Junior Team over the last several years which include: Arden Pitman (2009), Spencer Rowe (2010), Kristen Vredeveld (2011), Sam McHugh (2013), and Trey Freeman (2016, 2017).
Trey Freeman was on the 2017 FINA World Junior Team, while Kristen Vredeveld made the team back in 2011.

“Dan is ready and able to take on the role of head coach,” Director of the National Junior Team Mitch Dalton added. “Besides his outstanding work with Trey Freeman over the last few seasons, his name has been a staple on the National Junior Team coaches roster for the better part of a decade.”

While the head coach at the Baylor School, his teams have produced six girls, eight boys, and twelve combined TISCA State Championships. His teams have also claimed three girls and two boys High School National Championships.
