General Enrollment Information: This Winter was very successful for our growing program. Our program had over 80 kids enrolled in the program and participated in several tournament in the Bay Area. Not only were the enrollment numbers impressive but we had participants from every school in the Mission Valley Athletic League represented. The mission of the club was to get athletes and coaches from throughout Southern Alameda County and we are well on our way down that road. 

Coaching Info: Please see the info listed below. We take pride in hand selecting an experienced and knowledgeable staff including 5 current or former Varsity head coaches. Our best references are to ask the kids and parents that have participated in our programs. 

Spring 2016 Session Information: We will have a watered down version this summer since many of our athletes will be participating in high school swimming.
