In March 1974, a small group of enthusiastic swimmers formed a masters swim team in Davis, California. They held regular workouts, and soon word of Davis Aquatic Masters, DAM, spread to other swimmers in the area. DAM developed a spirit in those early days, one of dedication to the sport of swimming, for competition and fitness, and to the community of support, and camaraderie fostered by this shared enthusiasm.
DAM's membership has grown to over 500 members. Our members compete in local and national swim events, as well as in events that support our city, and events that celebrate the DAM spirit. Throughout the year DAM hosts local and regional swim events, picnics, parties, and annual club events that reinforce our belief in our team and in our community. Each and every DAM member will tell you that DAM is more than just a masters swim team, and that belonging to DAM enriches many aspects of our lives.
