Barrett is a swimmer who comes to practice on time and has all his equipment ready for the pool and dry land.  He is there to help out coaches with lane lines and getting the pool ready for practice.  He is respectful to his teammates and other coaches.  Even though he just started out this year, I am excited to see how he progresses through the club.  - Coach Lindsay

East Novice Swimmer of the Month

Julia Sheppard


Julia is a returning swimmer this season, so she knows what is expected at practice. She helps out with the new swimmers by making sure that they know what is going on during dryland and in the water, as well as helping them out if they have any questions. Julia also has shown a lot more focus at practice, and a drive to want to get better. She knows when it is the time to listen, and when it is the time to have fun. Julia is a great swimmer to have out at practice, and I cannot wait to see what she will do in the future! Awesome job, Julia!  - Coach Tristan and Coach Loreen


Tech Team Novice

Swimmer of the Month:

Alex Ginther


Alexander has been a great teammate and leader to the Novice Tech Team this past month. Alexander has been showing up to practices, bringing equipment, asking for tips at swim meets as well as during practice in order to move up. Alexander has shown improvement in his strokes because of his willingness to put forth effort into the drills and sets we practice every day. Thank you, Alexander, for being a great example to your teammates, and I hope swimming up with the Developmental Tech Team will help you continue to progress and meet your swim goals. Keep up the good work! - Coach Tiffany

Tech Team Developmental

Swimmer of the Month:

Ashton Joaquin

Ashton has a competitive fire underneath a humble and cheerful exterior. He goes about his sets with a work mans diligence but laughs and encourages his teammates on the wall. When Ashton isn't surprising his coach with best times in butterfly at swim meets he is an asset to his roster group and the club. If he continues as he has this month Ashton will only continue to develop and grow in his ability. As long as he doesn't forget to kick... - Coach Blake

 Red Swimmer of the Month:

Kelly Early

Kelly is a pure hard worker. She knows how to listen and can generally follow through with corrections within a couple laps. She isn't much of a talker, but I'd be hard pressed to look her way and not see her smiling.  I can always tell she enjoys being at practice and wants to get better every time. - Coach Omar

White Swimmer of the Month:

Claire always shows up ready to work. Her attitude is contagious and up beet. Claire is always ready to give anything I throw at her a try. The best thing about Claire is she is constantly asking how she can get better. - Coach Julie

Blue Swimmer of the Month:

​Hamin Kim


With 95% practice attendance, Hamin has been one of the most consistent swimmers I have had the pleasure of coaching. She works hard with very little complaints. With the challenges that a brought on with a new school year, Hamin comes to practice ready to work hard and lead her peers through challenging sets. Great work!!  - Coach Jordan

East Developmental Swimmer of the Month:

Roman Dawson



Roman is such an awesome kid to have out at practice! He is coming off of a stellar JO's back in July, which I think gave him more confidence at practice where he is always giving his 100% in every workout and any drills that he does! He is not afraid to ask questions at practice, which as a coach I really appreciate, because it shows that he is listening and is trying to get better. Whenever I tell him to work on something, whether it be drills or strokes, he always does what is asked. His work ethic, his attendance, and his attitude is the reason he has earned swimmer of the month. Congrats Roman!!   – Coach Tristan

Alyson Early



Alyson just joined Clovis Swim Club this season and she's doing great! She is always excited to get after our challenging sets, and her attendance is outstanding. She's been a great teammate so far and really fun to coach! Everyone, including myself, is so happy to have her in Bronze! Keep up the good work! - Coach Brooke

Silver Swimmer of the Month:

Lara Vu


Laura has started out the short course season on a mission. She's been coming to almost all practices and has been pushing herself right from the start.

Whether working on technique or building speed and endurance, she is focused on accomplishing what needs to be done both in and out of the pool.

Keep the momentum and the results will come. Great start to the season! – Coach Tanya

Isabella has really started off the year on the right foot.  She has excellent attendance.  She is trying faster intervals and challenging herself regularly in practice.  She has big goals and I feel confident that she is well on her way to achieving those with the focus and effort she has put into the first month of the season!  Great job! – Coach Mark
