He’s logged three decades with El Paso Aqua Posse - 6 years as a swimmer and 24 as a coach. And over that span, EPAP Head Coach Jack White has so many memorable moments, he can’t pick just one favorite. Among them: several high point TAGs winners; coaching a Junior National 100 Fly champ; sending 2 Aqua Posse swimmers to the Olympics to swim on the Mexican team; sending two local swimmers to the Olympic trials in 2000.
The kids are what keep Coach Jack coming back. His quiet, encouraging way is complimented by his disciplined dedication. Coach Jack shares his strong work ethic with all of the older Aqua Posse swimmers. That leaves the younger swimmers in awe, giving them a goal to work toward: swimming in “Jack’s group.”
When he’s not coaching EPAP, Coach Jack is Head Coach for the Cathedral High swim team where he also teaches Social Studies. He is married to Karen and they have two sons, one of him enjoys a little extra time with Dad because they commute to EPAP practices together!
