New Student Swim Club
A group of Cal students have been organizing to start a Swim Club at Berkeley. The lead student organizers have collaborated with CALM staff and the Advisory Board to plan for the Swim Club to join CALM this semester. Swim Club leadership will be directing as many of their swimmers toward CALM’s evening workouts (Mon/Wed 6:00-7:00pm, Tue/Thu 6:00-7:30pm). As CALM members, they will have access to all CALM practices. More info soon!
