Since the announcement, the Board of Directors has reached out to a broad group of USA Swimming personnel and has received resumes from some of the most notable coaches in the country. Maddan, the Head Coach of Parkway Swim Club who has developed multiple National level swimmers as well as Olympic Trials swimmers, was announced today (October 15) by Fleet's Board of Directors whom have been working with a Search Committee, that consisted of collegiate coaches throughout Texas and USA Swimming constituents, to fill the position.
“The Fleet position/club is a fantastic opportunity for coaches and swimmers alike,” said Bruce Gemmell, Head Coach of Nation's Capital of Washington D.C. and four time member of USA Swimming's National Team Coaching Staff.
Maddan, Head Coach of Parkway Swim Club out of St. Louis, Missouri, has over 15 years of coaching experience with proven success in club and athlete development at the highest levels. Maddan recently developed and placed one of the top 2012 recruits in the country, Heather Lundstrom, whom recently committed to the University of Tennessee. Other coaching honors have included serving as 2008-2011 Senior Chair of the South Carolina LSC, 2012 Ozark LSC Senior Chair, North Carolina Select Camps Coordinator, awarded as 2010 South Carolina Coach Senior Coach of the year, and 2001 North Carolina Age Group Coach of the Year.
“It's an honor to join the Cypress Fairbanks Swim Club and I look forward to helping the athletes be successful in the pool,” said Maddan. “I'm excited to begin working with the athletes and becoming a member of the Fleet Family.” Maddan said.
Maddan first earned praise several years ago when he became the Head Age Group Coach of Mecklenburg Aquatics in North Carolina, the nation's decisive team champion in the 2012 Club Excellence rankings. At SwimMac, Maddan worked under his mentor, Pat Hogan, then Head Coach of SwimMac Carolina, whom went on to become the managing director of club development for USA Swimming. Hogan has worked with USA Swimming for the past 10 years promoting and developing the model structure for swim clubs under the USA Swimming governing body.
“I am very pleased for Jack. He is a great choice. He will bring enthusiasm to Fleet and even more energy to the position,” said Hogan.
“Jack's ability to build and develop model club structures and the ability to produce National level athletes, makes him one of the biggest up and coming coaches in the industry. We are certain that Jack will build on FLEET's many strengths and engage our athlete's in the community as role models, exploring exciting new opportunities to ensure our athletes are prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. We happily welcome him to the pool deck, and look forward to great things to come,” said CFSC, when commenting on the hiring of Maddan.
