Cy-Fair Swim Club coach banned for life after sexual allegation

0

A sexual allegation against a local swim coach cost him his job and his future in the sport.

Jack Maddan, the Head Coach of FLEET, the competitive swim team at Cy-Fair Swim Club on Spring Cypress Rd. has been banned for life from USA Swimming, the national governing body of competitive swimming in the United States. […]

Parents of swimmers have jumped to Maddan’s defense telling Eyewitness News the ban is “tragic” and that their experience with Maddan has been only “positive.” One parent said when swimmers learned of the ban Wednesday night, one punched a wall so hard, he broke his hand.

“There’s not an ounce of truth. There is no substance to the allegations. There is not evidence to the allegations,” Maddan told Eyewitness News. He wouldn’t discuss what he’s accused of citing a USA Swimming confidentiality policy but we’ve learned it’s from 16 years ago, made by a former swimmer who recently came forward alleging sexual misconduct.
