This Foundation, JCAF, has been established to honor José Cerdá by benefiting the sports he loved, swimming and water polo.  José was constantly striving to move to the next level of athletic performance while also having fun and supporting his teammates and fellow competitors. For more information about JCAF, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, please visit

This Swim Clinic has been inspired by José’s qualities.  José missed his Sectional Cut in 100 back by 0.01 sec., yet he remained motivated to achieving his swimming goals.  José also enjoyed the camaraderie among swimmers from all teams. In memory of José, this Swim Clinic has been designed to help swimmers improve their competitiveness while also fostering unity throughout the sport.  For more information about Jose's life, please visit the Memorial website:

Why ?

This Swim Clinic is in memory of the swimmer José Cerdá, who passed away during a swim practice the day of his 18th birthday on October 26, 2010.  Jose’s ‘Point Zero One’ moment was the inspiration to create this swim clinic.   José sadly missed his sectional time cut in 100 m back stroke by 0.01 seconds.  This difference, the smallest measurable in swimming, had a huge impact on José.  Rather than being disappointed, José became more dedicated to the sport to shave that one hundredth of a second from his time to qualify for the event.

The José Cerdá Aquatic Foundation (JCAF) would like to inspire a ‘point zero one’ moment on every participant of this swim clinic, because a small difference can have a BIG impact.
