Spring Quarter 2017
Established in Spring of 2017, Cal Poly Swim Club
was founded by Kyle Vu, Emily Hecomovich and Cole Claypool.
Our first practice was held on April 13, 2017.
Within the first week of practice, over 30 students had registered
with the club.
The active members list has grown to 60 students
and had a fast growing interest list of over 100 students.
During the summer of 2017,
major progress has been made in making the team more professional.
We've partnered with Arena for the 2017/2018 school year and will
be wearing and using their equipment and suits. We've also
purchased TeamUnify, allowing us to have this website, online
registration, time keeping, meet entries, etc..
Fall Quarter 2017
Fall Quarter 2017 was our first
"real" quarter, where we had over 70 members join us! We attended a
Meet at UC Davis, where the Men's team took first place and the
Women's team took second place, with an overall second place team
Winter Quarter 2018
Winter Quarter 2018 was a huge
success! With many new members, we sent nearly 30 swimmers to the
Stanford Invite, where we DOMINATED! Cal Poly won the overall meet
by over 100 points. We have since been training hard and will be
sending 11 swimmers to Georgia Tech to compete at the first annual
Collegiate Club Nationals in April!
Spring Quarter 2018
We sent 11 swimmers to Georgia
Tech to compete at CCS Nationals! We had some top 20 finishes and
even some top 10 finishes! Lot's of behind the scenes work is being
done in preparation for Fall Quarter 2018!
This summer, a lot of behind the scenes work was
done. Our partnership with Arena was renewed with even better deals
and benefits for our team and staff. Planning for Nationals has
already begun and have set a goal for 20 members to attend the 2019
CCS Nationals held at The Ohio State University.
Held a strong campaign of advertising the
club and urged existing members and prospects to register
early. As of September 18, we have 43 students already registered
with the club.
Swim Club saw a record breaking
number of members join us in our first quarter of the academic year
with over 70 registrants! We competed at a few meets and every meet
was an overwhelming success. New practice routines have been
implemented and have seen an overall improvement in member
satisfaction in dryland and practices.
