Our world renowned Competitive Program is rooted in more than 50 years of Aquamaid tradition and excellence. Our Staff, led by 3-time Olympic Coach, Chris Carver, includes Olympic medalists, National Champions and current elite athletes.
Swimmers and families in the Competitive Program make a year-round commitment to training. Swimmers compete Regionally, Nationally and Internationally. This program has produced many National Champions and Olympians.
- This is a no-fee program excluding outfitting. Participant families are members of the Santa Clara Aquamaids and are asked to participate in our fundraising activities and volunteer at club events and meets.
- Swimmers practice between 5 and 6 days/week dependent upon their age
- Practices are held at pools in Santa Clara, San Jose & Los Gatos.
