Attention: Parents and Swimmers at Santa Clara High School

As we are now entering Championship Season, we want to secure an environment that allows coaches and swimmers to fully focus during this important time. To ensure this focus, we are asking that all parents stay off of the deck at Santa Clara High School until the end of the season. Thank you, we appreciate your understanding with this matter!

Mexican National Team Member STILL in Need of Room and Board

Dear Santa Clara Swim Club families,

Frisek Escamilla, a member of the Mexican Junior National Team, will be coming here next fall to study at Lynbrook HS and train with the National Team. Although he has a host family and will most likely have a car, he is in need of a place to stay from Sept. 15th Through Nov. 2nd. If you can help, please contact me, Coach Carlene, at ctakaki@santaclaraswimclub.org.

Thank you!

Coach Carlene, on behalf of the Escamilla Family

Please see your updated schedule!

Final countdown to JOs! In preparation for fast racing this weekend, be sure to eat well, hydate enough, and get your rest this week! Starting next week, we will be getting back to basics; focusing on refining stroke mechanics, recording/analyzing swimmers, conditioning, time trials and gearing up for next season. So, plan on attending practice through August! Coming up: Stevens Creek Reservoir Splash ‘n’ Dash - July 28th. Details will be emailed soon!

Gold - boys

Hopefully everyone is in their final preparation BOTH physically and MENTALLY heading into JOs. Please start to visualize what you want to accomplish this weekend....Remember sloppy training = sloppy racing!

Parents: I would really like to have the swimmers at 100% attendance this week. We will be working race strategy/conditioning in the morning and starts/turns/breakouts in the evenings.

Monday Morning: Meeting to go over championship yardage schedule and JO information.

Parents JO informational email will be out by Wednesday.

More sleep this week = faster swimming this weekend. Please cut down on high sugar/fat foods and replace them with something healthier. NO SODA, NO SODA, NO SODA!

Remember the small things count when preparing for your Championship Meet!

Remember to race SMART this weekend!

--- Coach Caleb

We hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!!! JOs are coming this week and the YB coaches are really excited to see some fast swims and multiple finalists. Just a reminder that 10 & under relays will swim at the end of finals on Saturday and Sunday. Check with the coaches before you leave the meet each day. GO SCSC!!!

Yellow 2

"I don't think there's any such thing as setting your goals too high. The higher you set your goals, the more you are going to work. If you don't reach them, then it's okay, just as long as you set it and you give 100% of yourself."

---Dan Jansen

The next meet for our group is at the end of August. It's time to look towards that meet and set some goals! Whether it's a lifetime best, a new A time, new B time, ANYTHING! We want you guys to start thinking about what you would like to achieve by the end of August and start coming to practice with those goals in mind. Every practice should have a focus.
