Civic Pool Heater - Trouble ahead!

   Due to multiple and inexplicable heater malfunctions at Civic pool the City is pursuing a unique resolution. The next time the heater turns off the City will keep it in its non-functioning state and then contact repair personnel for service. Only in an interrupted/off position can a correct equipment diagnosis be made.

   The upside of this process is the problem will be fixed. 

   The downside is that it may take 1-2 days for the repair personnel to arrive, and 1-2 more days for the repairs and for reheating the pool.

   When this next malfunction occurs, immediate notice will be emailed to all DAM swimmers and, except for the 6:15pm sessions, the Civic practices will move to Arroyo pool for the duration of the necessary service. Unfortunately, there is no evening space at any other City pool in which to relocate our 6:15pm swimmers. 

   Arroyo is an 8-lane pool located at 2000 Shasta Dr, in west Davis. The locker rooms are not heated  but the showers are. While at Arroyo, please follow the same Covid guidance options as at Civic.

Help make DAM a better swim club!

DAM Board Vacancy

   There is an opening on the DAM Board and we're looking for an immediate replacement to fill the remainder of the term (through the December board meeting). Prior service on a board is helpful, but not required.
   If you're interested, please send a brief statement of interest and recent contributions to the club to Stuart Kahn   ( by Thursday, January 20.


Head Coach Search Committee - seeking volunteers

   The board is forming a search committee to choose DAM's next Head Coach. This group will perform the tasks necessary to make a DAM good selection - from reading applications to interviews and everything in between.
