Over the past year the Ellis Aquatics family has grown to include not just a Masters and Recreation Extended Swim program, but also a Water Polo Club and Summer Swim team as well. As we are a year round club athletes are welcome to join the team at any time and do not have to wait for the start of a new season. 


Ellis Summer/Fall Penguin Swim Club

The Ellis Penguin Program is an introductory program for athletes 4 and older designed to improve stroke and turn technique in preparation for the Ellis Competitive Team. Small class sizes of swimmers at the same ability level allow for first-class instruction that is both focused and personalized. Swimmers practice once a day in hour long sessions with some additional dryland exercises and stretching before they get in the water. Instruction in the Ellis Penguin Program provides a technical skill base, igniting a love of the water and inspiring our swimmers on in all levels of the Ellis Competitive team. 

There are 3 main practice levels with the penguin program, ranging from learning freestyle to beginning age group swimming as well as a fitness program. For more information on each practice group, please click hereThe Penguin Program's summer season runs from March-July. During this time swimmers are asked to attend 3 local meets hosted by our friends at Lodi Swim Club. For more information on meets, please click here. Our fall season continues on through August-October.

Ellis Competition Team
