Head Coach's Message

   Congrats to all the swimmers who attended the Vacaville Super Bowl Meet last Saturday! We had 21 DAM swimmers compete at the meet and although it started off a little cold, the meet was a big success! It was so great to see people racing in a meet for the first time (or for the first time in a while). Way to go DAM!!

   If you’re at all curious about swimming in a meet, I urge you to check out some of the upcoming events in the area. Things are starting to get back to normal and there are some great competition opportunities (check out the competition section below). If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.


Civic Heater Update

   We are working closely with the city to get back to Civic as soon as possible. The necessary part has been manufactured. Once the part is received it will only take a few hours to get the heater up and running again. The coaching staff knows that this is an inconvenience for some of our members and we appreciate your patience. We will keep you updated when we get more information.
