A Note from Head Coach John Bitter
This last weekend was a very successful weekend for Santa Clara Swim Club. On the home front, we had a tremendously successful Zone Championships. Congratulations to all of the SCSC swimmers who participated in Zones and won the meet again. You did an awesome job representing the club and your efforts made us proud and resulted in another Championship trophy. Also, thank you to all of the parents who worked so hard throughout the meet to help make it happen; we couldn’t have done it without you!
In Austin, TX, the Senior National Team had a great weekend as well. Among the highlights are Sam Shimomura's Olympic Trial cut in the 1500, Catherine Ladd's Junior cut in the 100 Free, Sarah Shimomura's Junior cut in the 200 Free and Alex Wold's Olympic Trial cuts in the 400 Free, 400 IM and 200 IM.
All around Santa Clara had a great weekend of swimming, great job on showing why we earned Gold Medal Status last year, and why we will continue to succeed!

Volunteer Hours

Junior Bells/Bronze
We will be hosting Parent Orientation meetings on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 6:00pm at Peterson Middle school this week.
It has been brought up to our attention that the children are still leaving the showers on after the last workout and that parents are not respecting the parking lot signs and rules. Please note that there is only one way to get into the parking lot and only one way to go out. We are once again in jeopardy of losing another facility if we do not fix these issues!

GREAT JOB to all of the athletes who participated in the Zone Championship meet. We had a huge number of best times, many new JO, FW and PRT cuts AND a 1st place Championship Trophy! Congratulations to:
