Why Pointe Zero One
This Clinic is in memory of the swimmer José Cerdá. José sadly missed his sectional time cut in 100 m backstroke by 0.01 seconds. This difference, the smallest measurable in swimming, had a huge impact on José. Rather than being disappointed by it, José became more dedicated to the sport to shave that one hundredth of a second from his time to qualify for the event; in essence achieve his goals.
José’s point zero one story is more common in swimming than some may realize. Recently the US men’s relay swim team was disqualified at the 2013 World Championship by 0.01 seconds. Olympian Scott Usher also shared his ‘point zero one’ moment at the 4th Annual JCAF Dinner Gala.
We would like this Clinic to inspire your ‘point zero one’ moment, because the smallest difference can have a BIG impact.

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