The J-Hawk Aquatic Club was formed in April 1991 by Head Coach Joan Domitrz.

What does J-Hawk mean?
The letter "J" represents the Janesville area and the "Hawk" represents the Whitewater area.

Coaching Staff:
One of the biggest strengths of the J-Hawks is our experienced coaching staff and the fact they have been together for over 20 years.

Coach D (aka Joan Domitrz) still helps with the team.  She stepped down from the Head Coaching position in 1995 and her daughter, Cheri Zimdars, took over at that time.  Cheri had been Coach D's assistant since 1988. This stability has kept J-Hawks strong in holding thier philosophy of hard work and good stroke technique.

Our other coaches follow the same philosophy.  All of our assistant coaches are former or current college swimmers, who bring lots of competitive swimming and technical knowledge to the table.


Practice Location:
During the Fall/Winter/Spring seasons, we practice at the Whitewater Aquatic Center, UW-Whitewater, and Janesville Parker HS.

In the summer, we are also at Janesville's Rockport Pool and the Edgerton Outdoor Pool.
