Welcome to the 2024 Season!

Registration for the team officially opens on February 1st – just three weeks away – and we have been hard at work getting ready. The entire Sierra Sharks Board is excited to announce some big changes for our team as we gear up for an incredible year together.

First up…you’ll notice a few changes in how we look! We’ve launched a brand-new website along with an update of our longstanding Sharks insignia logo. Our new website will house all the important information and updates that our new and returning families need, as well as serve as an important recruitment tool as we continue to build up our team.

We are thrilled to announce that Coach Melanie Miles will be returning as our head coach. We are in the process of building our coaching team with seasoned coaches and swimmers focused on teaching improved swimming techniques, reducing times, and fewer DQs. Keep an eye out for a future email with more information on coaching staff qualifications, applications, and interviews.

Over the past several months we revamped our Sponsorship Program and have been actively recruiting sponsors to help fund the important and exciting things we want to do for our swimmers and families! If you would like to become a sponsor, or know of a company that would make a great sponsor, please take a look at the sponsorship section on our website!

We are also excited to share that the Sierra Sharks Swim Team was chosen as a recipient of an El Dorado Hills Area Foundation grant of nearly $10,000 to replace our time keeping equipment! This grant allows us to implement a more reliable timing system, run more efficient meets, and enhance the swim meet experience with instantaneous app-based race results.

We’re looking forward to an awesome season of growth and can’t wait to see you and your swimmers back on the pool deck. Here are two important dates for your calendar:

  • March 21: Sharks Open House for new and returning families. This event will be held from 6- 7 p.m. at the Cameron Park CSD and will include important information about the season, sign up forms for various volunteer opportunities, team suit try-ons, and early access to new Sharks apparel for the 2024 swim season.

  • April 22: Practice begins for all age groups; more information will be sent out as the date approaches.

Keep an eye on your email for additional important updates as the season approaches, and be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for ongoing updates! Go Sharks!
