Our kids love DACA

"Our kids love DACA," say Indian Parents. Find out why.

With an unparalleled breadth of programming and a track record of excellence, De Anza Cupertino Aquatics (DACA), has developed into the most comprehensive aquatics program in the United States. An award winning staff and state of the art facilities are provided in all of DACA's aquatic programs. Complete programming includes: Learn-to-Swim and Special Needs instruction for all ages, Swim Team for all levels of skill and experience, Pre-Competitive Swimming for ages 5-14, and Fitness Swim for adults. Ultimately, DACA strives to provide a quality experience for every DACA member from beginner to Olympian.

The award winning DACA Swim School has been the premier swim school in the Bay Area for twenty years. The DACA Swim School was founded with the primary purpose of teaching infants, children, and adults to swim properly. To that end, DACA has developed a proven method of teaching that ensures skill development, a love of the water, and a healthy respect for water safety. Typical classes consist of a maximum of four students with private and semi-private classes also available. For infants and toddlers ages three months through three years, Water Babies classes are offered. These classes are designed to help introduce children to swimming skills through songs and games in a safe and warm environment.

Additionally, the DACA Swim School offers an accelerated summer learn-to-swim program, Splash classes that provide flexibility in meeting your scheduling needs, and a Pre-Competitive program available on nights and weekends. With extended hours and availability seven days a week, the DACA Swim School has something for everyone.

The DACA Pre-Competitive Program is an introductory program designed to improve stroke and turn technique in preparation for the DACA Competitive Team. Small class sizes of no more than seven swimmers of similar ability allow for first-class instruction that is both focused and personalized. Instruction in the DACA Pre-Competitive Program provides a technical skill base, igniting a love of the water and inspiring swimmers to continue on in all levels of the DACA Competitive Team.

Founded in 1981, the DACA Competitive Swim Team has built a program that competes successfully at the highest level of local, regional, national, and international competition. DACA age group team accomplishments include Zone 1 North, Junior Olympic, and Far Western Championships. The National Team has won Junior National and Sectional Championships, and has been a top-ten team at the United States Swimming Nationals.

DACA student-athletes have represented the United States in international competitions all over the world and have been awarded scholarships to the finest colleges in the country. With a stated team philosophy of "...our aim is not to produce champions but to produce an atmosphere in which champions are inevitable," DACA takes pride in developing student-athletes that excel in the classroom and in the pool.

With proven success in every DACA program, we look forward to continued achievement in years to come!
