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. He also served as an assistant on the 2011 FINA World Junior Team staff as well. 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.”
