Swimmers, if a coach breaks the law by physically assaulting you in any way sexual or otherwise, gather a witness if you can and call the police. Don't go to school officials asking for help for they care more about lawsuits than your personal welfare. Don't ask a teammate for advice either for they may have "drank" the "snitches get stitches Kool-Aid" and subsequently advise against reporting. (I hold up Penn State and the University of Utah as examples.)
This article from USA Today is quite uncomfortable to read. This was culturally tolerated within the University of Utah and it has to stop. If the allegations as reported by USA Today below are true then who swam under this coach have to ask themselves what was the end result of their silence?
Look at it this way, if the police would have been called the first time an abuse incident occurred just imagined what could have been prevented?
From USA Today:
"... Winslow commonly came to practice drunk; had outbursts of anger, including once punching an assistant coach; used racial slurs; and once forced a team member to swim underwater with his hands tied to a PVC pipe that was strapped to his back until he blacked out, parent Matt Fiascone said. Fiascone's son, Austin, swam on the University of Utah team for three seasons while Winslow was coach.
"He's a monster," Matt Fiascone said of Winslow.
Winslow did not answer phone calls for comment from told the Associated Press, and his voicemail box was full. He has denied the Arizona allegations.
Utah athletics director Chris Hill said he's not aware of the any of the allegations at Utah being of a sexual nature.
Matt Fiascone said he called to tell Hill about Winslow's behavior in March 2012. He said he now knows other parents lodged complaints as far back as 2008. He criticizes Hill for not properly investigating. ..."
...USA Today mentioned that racial slurs as well were stated as well!
