Garrett McCaffrey Steps Down As Phoenix Swim Club Head Coach

Garrett McCaffrey has stepped down as head coach of the Phoenix Swim Club after nearly a decade with the club. McCaffrey confirmed the news on Thursday.

“I’m proud of all we accomplished in the last 10 years at Phoenix Swim Club and grateful for all the people who were part of it,” he said. “My watch is ended.”

McCaffrey was a collegiate swimmer at the University of Washington and University of Missouri. He was also a co-founder of SwimSwam News.

The Phoenix Swim Club doesn’t currently list a head coach or interim head coach. Takahisa Ide continues to be listed as Head Masters Coach, and Ken Maczuga is listed as the Head Age Group Coach. Phoenix Swim Club is based out of Paradise Valley, Arizona, and has won two Arizona Senior State Championships during McCaffrey’s tenure with the club.
