Volunteer Hours

Timing at Zones: SCSC does NOT have a timing assignment at Zones, we only have to supply the marshaling staff, so if you didn't get a marshal job you have the meet off--enjoy!

Senior I Meet: Job signups open on Tuesday, January 15 at 8:00 p.m. and will be limited to 2 jobs per account for the first 24 hours.


Q&A Session with Volunteer Coordinator: Everyone is invited to attend an informal meeting Wednesday, January 16 at 6:00 p.m. at the ISC with the Volunteer Coordinator who will answer all your questions about earning volunteer hours. Hope to see you there!



Thank you to all those who participated in this year’s Swim-A-Thon it was a great time had by all. Remember all online and offline donations must be turned in by January 19 to the swim team office.

Prizes and Swim-A-Thon t-shirts will be distributed the week of January 21-25.


Please contact with any questions.


2013 Meet Schedule

Please find the 2013 Meet Schedule here:



Please remember that you are on your own for rides to the Cal Invite this weekend.

For all who participated in our 5000 for time on Sunday, GREAT JOB!

“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”

--- Paul Bryant


Senior 1

Be prepared to race this weekend at Zones as we try to defend our Championship.


Senior 2

Thursday Jan 17 will be our team meeting at 5:30. All swimmers in both sessions must attend.

Congratulations to Paola and Kendall for earning their way up to Senior I. Both finished the Fall season with impressive swims at the Senior Championships where Paola earned three Far Western Q's (500 Fr, 1000 Fr, 1500 Fr) and Kendall with two Far Western Q's ( 100 Bk, 200 Bk). Kendall also made her CCS cut in the finals of the 500 Fr. We will dearly miss the leadership you girls provided at practice and wish you both the best of luck!


Gold - boys

- Gold Boys will be having our group meeting on Tuesday, January 15th at 4:45pm. We will be going over the remainder of the short course season as well as working on goals.

- Please start to prepare for Zones this coming weekend. Hydration, nutrition and attending practice this week will be very important in your performances at Zones.

- Our parent meeting will be held from 5-5:30pm at the ISC on Tuesday, January 22nd. All information discussed in our swimmer and parent meetings will be sent out as an email if you cannot attend.

- Dare to be different - Doing "something" obviously isn't the same as doing everything. Staying on top and in balance is a difficult task. Getting back on top is even harder. Not every athlete improves their times every season, but you always want to be able to look back and say you gave it your absolute best effort.

Have a great week!


Gold - girls

Ladies remember: Swimming is a tough sport. But practices are a lot more fun if you focus on your goals every day and have fun with your teammates while you're doing it! Make challenges for yourself with each set, whether it's thinking about something technical or racing the person next to you.



Thank you to all the Blue Bell participants we had participate in the Swim-A-Thon this year! It was a blast watching you guys swim so strong for two hours straight!
