But to Jack, these accomplishments never satisfy the hunger for more – he is constantly pushing the boundaries of his abilities to go further. This thirst for improvement is contagious to swimmers attending his clinics. Need a bit of inspiration to boost your swimming performance? Look no further than a clinic with Jack!

His singular focus on improving while under the direction of college coach Eddie Reese has helped build up and arsenal of technical knowledge to sharpen the details that set great swimmers above the rest. Becoming a student of the sport is imperative to swimming faster, and Jack’s clinic is a crash-course on gaining speed through doing the details correctly.

As an elite competitor, Jack has spent countless hours perfecting both touch turns and flip turns as well as underwater acceleration. He emphasizes the importance of maintaining momentum off the walls and powering through to the finish. He teaches that a swimmer is never faster in a race than when he or she pushes off the wall – the best of the best just know how to slow down the least!

Jack is also known to be one of the hardest trainers both in the pool and on dry land, emphasizing that hard work pays off over time when you learn how to handle pressure and have confidence in your training. “Really, the only pressure that affects you is the pressure you put on yourself,” he says.
