About the Saratoga Woods Community Association

Background

Established almost 60 years ago by Saratoga Woods neighborhood developer, George Day, the Saratoga Woods swim club was gifted to our community as a gathering place for neighbors and friends. Over the decades, Saratoga Woods remains a neighborhood of friends that meet to have fun, swim, talk, and watch our children grow up in a healthy, supportive environment. 

The Saratoga Woods Community Association (SWCA) is a member-owned club designed to provide a broad spectrum of family recreation for its members. Run entirely by member-volunteers, SWCA is operated by a Board of Directors, elected annually by members.

What makes SWCA so unique is that in addition to the contributions from the Board, all members are required to volunteer for social events, semi-annual clean-up days, to serve on the Board, and to take an active part in making this not only a club, but a true community.

Membership in SWCA is limited to 200 families, which includes 35 members who live outside the membership boundaries (sponsored members).

Swim Team

The SWCA swim team has been in existence for almost 60 years. We have a history of coaches and parents working together to help our youth achieve their individual and team goals in a fun yet hard working environment. Our swim team, which competes during the summer season, is for youths between the ages of 4 through 18. Swim practices begin in April and end in July.

Our professionally coached swim team fosters a healthy environment where children of all ages and abilities build self-esteem and a winning attitude for life. This is achieved through daily practice sessions, Saturday swim meets, team fun days, parent participation, and weekly achievement awards.

Saratoga Woods Swim Team participates in the Junipero Serra Swim League. Each year, we compete at the League Championships which are held traditionally at Stanford Avery Stadium. We have two professionally trained coaches to train our swim team. Both coaches have competitive swimming backgrounds.
