Baylor's Dan Flack on USA Swimming camp staff

April 3rd, 2013 by Staff Reports in Sportlocal

Baylor School coach Dan Flack is on the coaching staff for the 2013 USA Swimming national junior team training camp Thursday through Sunday at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Flack was one of the coaches also for the national junior team that won overall points and medal counts in Peru in 2011, and three of his swimmers since he came to Baylor in 2006 have been USA junior team members. "This is a tremendous honor and I am really excited about this opportunity," Flack said in a school release. "This camp provides so many opportunities for interaction and growth with some of the top athletes, minds and resources our country has to offer in swimming."
