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,

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

Thank you!

Coach Carlene, on behalf of the Escamilla Family



No Monday morning workout this week, but get ready for triples!

Senior 1

Beach Day will be July 17 at Capitola Beach. Check your emails for details!


Senior 2

A strong finish by Senior 2s at JO's with many best times. Congrats to all! As we wrap up our last month of training we are already looking forward to next season, setting our bar higher, and learning to "embrace-the-race!" New: watch your email for info on the 7/25 Splash 'n Dash, and a Senior 2 beach day the last week of July!

"When I was younger, I thought that the key to success was just hard work. But the real foundation is faith. Faith--the idea that 'I can do it'--is the opposite of fear ('What if I fail?'). And faith creates motivation which in turn leads to commitment, hard work, preparation...and eventually success."

---Howard Twilley


Gold - boys

No news!


Gold - girls

Gold Girls remember: Swim meets provide you with a great opportunity to get to know your teammates and learn more about strategy and racing. Meets are the reward for swimming fast in practice. As your times drop through the year, it is proof that you are a better, more efficient swimmer than you were at the start of last year.



Congratulations to Sean Hornchek for his outstanding swims at JO's. Swimmers, don't forget about our Monday and Wednesday secondary workouts at Wilson. We have been able to do some fun things with the short course water!


Yellow 1/2

Congratulations to all the Yellow Bells on a great JOs!!! We had multiple finalists and new time standards achieved. Get ready to fine tune things for Far Westerns!!!

Yellow 2
