“Helping kids become extraordinary people through the sport of swimming.”
The Marlins are pleased to offer several opportunities for swimmers of all ages, abilities and commitments. To get more information about any of the Sierra Marlin programs please email the team by clicking on the "Contact Us" tab on the left side of the screen.
Our annual fall clinic will begin in August and run through November. This program is designed for summer league swimmers in 1st through 12th grade that wish to further their overall swimming development and get a taste of what it is like to be a USA Swimming athlete. There will be three meets over the course of the clinic so that swimmers can see their progress over the three month program. Swimmers will get the opportunity to work with our award winning full time coaching professionals throughout the clinic.
Winter Clinic/Spring Clinic
Our winter clinic will begin in November and go through January. Summer league swimmers will get a chance to continue to develop their skills into the winter season. Once again, swimmers will get the opportunity to work with our full time professional coaches.
Marlin Swim School
The Marlins have a year round INDOOR swim school in Folsom! Swimmers of all ability levels age 6 months and up can hone their swimming skills in our once or twice per week program. The water is a comfortable 90 degrees and being indoors creates a wonderful environment for young swimmers to develop their skills. Much like learning a musical instrument, consistent practice year round leads to efficient development. Classes are held every month of the year and swimmers can begin lessons anytime.
Year Round Swimming
Due to popular demand, we are excited to be offering a new track within the Sierra Marlins for athletes that want to swim year round, but play other sports and/ or are involved in other activities. There is no attendance requirement for these groups and the entrance requirements are more relaxed than our college prep track. Athletes have the flexibility to stay in this track for the duration of their swimming career or transfer over to our college prep track if and when they choose.
Of course our most popular and well known track is our college prep track. Groups in this track are for those that have prioritized swimming and have dreams of swimming in college or swimming on a National or International level. The Marlins have a long history of developing many of the area’s best swimmers including National Champions, USA National Team Members, World Championship medalists and NCAA All Americans. This year alone, the Marlins are sending 10 student-athletes on to some of the finest Universities in the country including Stanford , Cal , Notre Dame, Cornell and others. Many summer swimmers have the basic skills necessary to start in this track right away, or with some hard work they can develop their skills and switch to this track when they are ready.
By joining the Sierra Marlins, each swimmer becomes a member of USA Swimming. USAS is the national governing body for the sport of swimming with over 250,000 members and over 2700 participating clubs across
America . With membership, each Marlin athlete is tied to our Olympians who, as members of USAS, have maintained our country as the best swimming nation in the world for over 40 years. Each Marlin swimmer will receive a USA Swimming membership card with an individual USAS number which will remain the same for the length of a swimmers career. Every swimmer also receives a subscription to Splash! Magazine. All Marlin swimmers are covered under USA Swimming’s general liability insurance policy.
We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for joining us. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to ask a board member or coach any question you may have.
