Tradition, Dedication, Excellence.
JDHS Swimming and Diving thrives on a longstanding tradition of academic and athletic excellence. Our athletes dedicate themselves to self-improvement through hard work, team camaraderie, and a positive spirit. Head Swim Coach Seth Cayce, a JDHS Alumni, leads the team. Seth is a former collegiate swimmer, and brings a wealth of knowledge and competitive spirit to the pool deck. The Crimson Bears boast top finishes at state championships every year, and continue to be a powerhouse swim team in Alaska. Let's go, Bears!
In 2020 we welcomed Assistant Swim Coach Amber Kelly, also a JDHS Alumni and former collegiate swimmer.
Our diving team is a joint program with Thunder-Mountain High School. Coached by Savona Kiessling and JDHS alumni, Nathan Teal, our Crimson Bear divers bring an element of excitement to the pool at every meet.
