DAM Practice Schedule
There are many practices from which to choose. We hold nine (8) one hour sessions per day, Monday through Friday.
On Saturday morning, we hold three "intensive" practices: 7, 8 and 9am. Expect to be pushed a little bit harder on Saturday.
We also have two (2) three-hour lap swim sessions on weekends: Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM. These opportunities are for current USMS members only and do not count towards one of three free tryout swims.
|There are two (2) sessions at 6AM. The 6AM workout M-F is our only workout at Arroyo Pool. The T-Th Arroyo workout is replaced by the LC workout at Schaal during the summer months. Please see calendar for updates.|

|Summer Long Course at Schaal Pool|
Tuesday/Thursday June - August
(see calendar for exact dates for each year)
|6:00 AM||Schaal Pool is located on the UC Davis campus on the southwest corner of Hutchison and La Rue (map).
The morning practice is from 6-7a.m. and replaces the Arroyo pool sessions. Civic practices at 6 and 7a.m. are still offered. Lane lines usually have to be put in and members begin pulling them down at 5:50a.m. UCDavis parking enforcement at the Schaal lot begins at 7:15a.m.
The evening practices are scheduled to begin at 6:10 and 7:10p.m. The first practice actually starts as soon as the lane lines are in, which can take less than 10 minutes and the second practice begins one hour later. Plan on starting closer to 6 and 7, rather than later. Parking is free before 7:15a.m. and after 5p.m.
