A DAM membership allows you to swim at any of our scheduled workouts, at any of the pools we use. There are 47 coached workouts each week, and 6 hours of lap swim each weekend. The schedule lists workout times and pools.
Our workouts are coached, one-hour sessions. Swimmers are grouped in separate lanes, according to their ability and times. There is a 10 minute warmup period, and 50 minutes of coach-led training.
You may attend multiple workouts throughout the week, at a time and pool location that works for you. You can also attend the open lap swims at Civic on the weekends. No sign-ups required (for workouts or for lap swim), just show up and swim.
Note that we have a modified swim schedule on holidays, which is always posted on the website, or on the white board at the workouts leading up to a holiday. For example, there are no workouts on Christmas Day, and no workouts on the day of the Lake Berryessa Open Water Swim.

All individuals who swim with DAM, regardless of the frequency, must maintain current registration with US Masters Swimming (USMS). The USMS provides liability insurance for DAM and its coaching staff, and DAM requires that all participants in our workouts, weekend lap swims, and competitions are registered. All USMS registrations expire on 31 December and must be renewed annually. You will receive a registration reminder from USMS around 1 November.
