Coaching Staff 

 Jack Bower will be returning as Head Swim Team Coach this year. We are thrilled to have him leading the Masked Bandits! Coach Jack will be joined by Coach Cassie Bower, and several assistants this year.   We are also happy to announce the return of Dive Coach Samantha Rottkamp. 

Jack brings a tremendous resume with proven experience leading competitive swim programs. More importantly, he understands the special legacy of Raccoon Valley Swim Club, and is passionate about developing our swimmers and our program to be among the best in the area.

Coach Jack began swimming at the age of 5 at Brookside Swim Club, where he swam for 14 years. During his time with the team he was a Peach Bowl Champion, Tri-County finalist, and team captain. He is a 2002 graduate of Washington Township High School where he was a team captain, all-conference, and all-area swimmer as well as a Meet of Champions Finalist in both swimming and diving. After high school Coach Jack competed for Rowan University under the late, great Tony Lisa where he served as team captain his senior year. Upon graduation from college, Coach Jack spent some time as an assistant coach at Raccoon Valley Swim Club and was the assistant swim coach for Pitman High School while serving as an adjunct professor in the Exercise Science department at Gloucester County College (now RCSJ). Coach Jack’s career path then took him to Baltimore, Maryland where he was the assistant head coach at the Bel Air Athletic Club for three years where he coached multiple Maryland State Champions. In 2012 Coach Jack became the head coach of Jersey Storm Swimming where he served in that position for 7 seasons where he coached numerous Sectional and Junior National Qualifiers and one NJSIAA High School State Champion, along with many future Division I college swimmers.

Coach Jack is currently a Physics teacher and Head Swim Coach at Clearview Regional High School. He is married to long time Raccoon Valley swim coach and former Raccoon Valley swimmer, Coach Cassie. Coach Jack hopes to bring a hard work ethic to Raccoon Valley and use his many years of experience to get RVSC swimmers to be faster in the pool, and better young ladies and gentleman out of the pool. He expects swimmers to work hard, be on time, and never settle for less than their best.
