Sixteen members of this year’s National Junior Team roster will compete in Hawaii and will look to follow in the footsteps of notable U.S. National Team members who competed at a Junior Pan Pacific Championships such as Michael Andrew, Olivia Smoliga, Alex Walsh and others.

The Junior Pan Pacific Championships roster will be led by head coach Brent Arckey (Sarasota Sharks) and assistant coaches Chuck Batchelor (SwimMAC Carolina), Tom Kleiboeker (Tsunami Swim Team of K.C.), Ginny Nussbaum (Long Island Aquatic Club), Chris Plumb (Carmel Swim Club) and Gary Taylor (Cavalier Aquatics/Piedmont Family YMCA).
