A raffle drawing was held every hour for prizes such as swim caps, racing goggles and other competitive training equipment, with grand prizes of $50 gift certificates from the Calphin Club good towards lesson programs or membership. The festivities lasted all day until 5 p.m.

While the ‘08 Olympic Games were hosted in Beijing in August, our head coach, an Olympic medalist swimmer from China, will break ground for her first swim facility, the Calphin Aquatic Club, right here in the bay area. The ceremony was held at the swim center project site, in north Fremont.
This exciting swim center is the very first indoor swimming facility in Fremont with pools heated year-round, and is suitable for swimmers of all ages. It covers a footprint of over 10,000sf including two pools, shower and locker rooms.
Both the mayor, vice mayor and many city council members of Fremont attended our ceremony. We appreciated the outpouring of support from the community at our ground-breaking ceremony, and were so excited to celebrate and witness this historic moment in Fremont.
