The WHAC Whitecaps is the USA
Swimming affliliated year round swim team of the Western Hills
Athletic Club. The team has a strong focus on stroke technique and
enjoying swimming. Under the coaching of Head Coach Jimmy Bynum and
Associate Head Coach Ian Crocker, the team puts a strong emphasis
on enjoying swimming as a healthy lifestyle. Jimmy does have a
strong competetive drive, but not at the expense of the athlete. He
loves to win, but more importantly he wants to coach good kids who
will still enjoy swimming later in life. Whether you have a swimmer
who is going to compete at a championship level, or someone who
likes to practice but is not as interested in meets, we probably
have a spot for you.
All Groups are coached by both
Jimmy and Ian, as well as Coach Alexe. Jimmy and Ian co-coach all
the workouts. It's not one working with one group and another
working with another group today, then switching the next day. They
active coach together. They might break a group into different
lanes and work on something separately, but they often talk and
agree on sets together during the workout. If your child swims in
the program, they will be coached by both Jimmy and Ian
