Civic Heater Non-Repair is Successful!

   Let's not act like we didn't know this was going to happen. 

   The off-again/on-again Civic Pool heater was switched on when the repair staff arrived on Friday, and it has worked flawlessly ever since. The pool was re-heated over the weekend, and its temperature has returned to normal. 

   Honestly, there isn't more news than that. Its frustrating, but all we can do is keep swimming! They can't fix it if it won't fail.

   DAM's regular Civic practice schedule resumes at 6:15PM tonight (Monday).

   All daytime practices at Civic resume on Tuesday, May 17.

   Please don't confuse this unplanned schedule change with the summer schedule changes outlined below!


President's Message

Civic Pool Schedule 

   In June of 2020 when DAM returned to the pools with one-swimmer-per-lane, out of necessity, the club expanded its weekday programming by offering Civic practices at 8 and 9am on MWF. We've been fortunate that those hours have been continuously available as traditionally they are used in the summer months by the Aquadart youth team.

   After a two-year hiatus, the DARTS are back to their pre-lockdown summer schedule and have again been assigned those hours by the City from Mon, June 13 through Friday, August 5. We realize many of the current 8 and 9am swimmers have grown accustomed to swimming during these extra hours and ask they bear with this adjustment by returning to their previously attended practice times.

   Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Long Course Schedule

   Long course training returns to the Schaal pool on the UCD campus beginning Tuesday, June 14 and running through Thursday, August 4

   Long course practices will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday only. Morning long course practices are from 6-7am and evenings from 6:05-7:05pm and from 7:05-8:05pm. During those days and times, no practices will be offered at Arroyo from 6:00-7:00am or at Civic from 6:15-7:15pm. During the summer season, parking is free in the Health Sciences lot before 7:15am and after 5:00pm. All swimmers will be asked to help put lane lines in before the sessions and/or with taking them back out afterwards.

Berryessa Volunteers still needed!

   Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to help at our Berryessa swim. It takes almost 100 volunteers to put on this event, and we still have some open time slots for helping with the finish, parking, and check in. We also are still looking for people who can be part of the very important water safety crew.

    All volunteers will receive a T-shirt, and we will provide snacks on the day of the event.

   You can sign up at Civic, or by clicking the button below! Contact Kathy Gill with any questions.
