Ellis Aquatics is a year-round Level 3 USA Swimming 
serving the Tracy & Mountain House area. We are 
a coached 
owned team founded by Clay Basepayne, 
Pat Windschitl, 
Candy Windschitl and Erin Mann. 
In 2016, our 
club's senior 
program became part of a new 
group in the 
valley called 
California Gold Swim Club. 
It's the goal of both 
Ellis Aquatics 
and California Gold to to raise 
the standard 
of swimming in 
the central valley. 

Since 2010 we've worked hard to make 
t of the c
entral valley a force in swimming. 
We've built a team of 30 
to one of 
he largest teams
in Pacific Swimming and 
earned Level 3
in USA swimming's club recognition program,
an accomplishment only met by 6% of clubs nationally! 

As coaches our goal is to train local youth to become 
lifelong athletes who love the sport and the experiences 
it brings. We believe swimming builds leaders, teaches 
goal setting and drives determination. 

We know all great athletes start at the beginning. Our 
goal is to provide every member an opportunity to improve 
their swimming skills and achieve success at their level 
of ability, all the way from our 4 year old swimmers up 
to our international competition athletes. 

From novice to 
nationally ranked we've built a club that 
will give every 
athlete a place to train with like minded 
peers. We are
tting stronger, every athlete, every day


We are located at Merrill F. West high school, Kimball high school, and Tracy High School throughout the year.
