Cal Aquatic Master

Keep Calm and Swim On  

by Kate Eby

Spot a bright gold tee shirt with a bit of British wit and you've seen the latest design of Cal Aquatic Masters (CALM), a team that's been around since Margaret Thatcher took office. 'Keep Calm and Swim On' is CALM's catchphrase, adopted from the popular World War II British slogan, 'Keep Calm and Carry On.'  

Behind the Name

Originally, Cal Aquatic Masters was called Strawberry Canyon Aquatic Masters, and was named for the pool they first used for practice in 1979. The name change took place last year to better reflect their connection with UC Berkeley. The team includes 150 swimmers and as many as 10 coaches.
