Why Point Zero One

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 missed his sectional time cut in the 100 backstroke by 0.01 seconds. 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. 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.
