Coach’s Message

Hello Dolphins!

I hope everyone enjoyed their two weekends off and got some much-needed rest!  Now we have to get back into the swing of things! We are in the home stretch of the season. We have our last dual meet of the season this weekend against Rocklin Wave! More information will be coming about warm-up and check-in times. 

If this is your last meet of the season, now is your time to compete to the best of your ability and leave it all in the pool! This is your time to use everything you have learned all season and swim hard and fast! This is what we work for all season long! We are excited to see all of the time dropped.

Please make sure all athletes are on time for practices.  Let’s have a fun week and train hard! The coaches want to make sure that all swimmer athletes have the best opportunity to finish their season with positive results. We look forward to the possibilities. 

This is the official last week of swim practice. Please join us for awards next week to end this unusual season with a bang! More information is coming! 

For athletes that signed up for the Championship Invitational at Rio Del Oro, practice schedules will come out soon. Stay tuned! 

See you on the pool deck!

Rio Del Oro CHAMPIONSHIP Invitational - Deadline Extended

With the current public health climate, our normal NCSL Championships will not take place this year. Instead, we will be participating as a team in a Championship-style invitational at Rio Del Oro starting on July 24th.


This will be similar to Time Trials with participants swimming every event, however, there will not be a finals heat at the end, and each race will be the last, so let’s leave it in the pool!


Important information regarding this meet:


  1. ALL swimmers who would like to participate in the invitational will have to OPT-IN. You will NOT automatically be selected to participate. Please click here for instructions on how to OPT-IN for this meet. The deadline to OPT-IN has been extended to Wednesday, July 14th, by midnight.  This is a hard deadline.

  2. If you feel strongly about NOT swimming in an event please indicate such in the comments field.

  3. At this point the meet is set for Saturday, July 24th. If participation is high with many swimmers/teams participating, it will move to a two-day event, the 24th, and the 25th. Swimmers will have to OPT-IN for any days that they are available.

  4. There is a cost per swimmer, however, the team has decided to cover this cost as it’s been such a unique year, so please make sure if you OPT-IN that you attend the meet.


Be on the lookout for additional details as they become available.



AWAY MEET vs Rocklin Wave

**IMPORTANT** All swim team participants are reflected as ATTENDING all swim meets on our team website.  If you cannot attend a swim meet, you must change your swimmer’s commitment on our team website.  

The sign-out procedure is an extremely important part of the execution of a swim meet. No-show swimmers significantly delay the start of the meet.  The deadline to sign out of a swim meet is always the Monday prior to the meet.  The deadline to sign out of this Saturday’s meet against the Rocklin Wave is TONIGHT, Monday, July 12th, by midnight.

More information including swimmer check-in, warm-ups, and facility details will be available later this week.  Be sure to check your email for updates!


AP Dolphins End Of Season Celebration and Awards Night!

WHAT TO BRING: The event will be picnic-style, held under the large oak tree at Arden Park.  In addition to your Dolphin(s), please bring the food and drinks of choice for your family.
