News and Announcements


The Club Estates Marlins Swim Team is proud to announce that we are 50 years old this year! The team started as an AAU swim team and transferred to a USA Swimming Team in 1980 when the AAU/USA Swimming transfer was commenced. We have been a member of the summer league program since its inception and we have numerous trophies from the years attesting to our swimmers’ prowess. We have had to pleasure of having swimmers advance to College Conferences, USA Swimming Sectionals, UIL/TAPPS High School State and STS Championships. We have taught swimming lessons at our facility since its inception. We have taught thousands to be safer around the water.
Many have shared their love for swimming with others. We now have daughters and sons from our previous swimmers on the team! We are proud that Lorraine DuVall had a vision to establish the Corpus Christi Marlins in 1972 and the Club Estates Recreation Center in 1977! HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY Corpus Christi Marlins Swim Team!


We are pleased to share our club has achieved USA Swimming’s Safe Sport Club Recognition. This recognition reflects our commitment to providing a healthy and positive environment free from abuse for all team members.

In order to apply for Safe Sport Club Recognition, we were required to develop and implement club governance measures, Safe Sport policies and reporting mechanisms, Safe Sport best practices as well as training to athletes and parents.

All of these measures were reviewed by USA Swimming Safe Sport staff for approval. Our Safe Sport Club Recognition status is valid for two years, after which time we will be eligible to renew for recognition.

We are excited to have achieved this milestone and to publicly demonstrate our commitment to providing a Safe Sport environment on this team. Please contact the coaching staff with any questions.

Our December swim meet will be held December 4-5, 2021 at the CCISD Natatorium. If your swimmer is not registered with USA Swimming, please get the paperwork to your coach as soon as possible. The cost per event is $8 per event. The meet information is attached below. We are looking forward to all of our swimmers participating and being able to see how well they have improved. If you have any questions, please contact your coach. Thanks for all you do for the swimmers!

Our June long course swim meet was a great success! We are so proud of our swimmers! We had 9 swimmers participate in their first long course meet. Our largest time drop of the meet was Anastacia Cabral with an 83.27 seconds drop in her 200 free from her last long course swim meet in 2019. This time drop was closely by the time drop by Robert Thacker with an 83.26 second drop in his 100 free from his last 2018 long course meet. All our swimmers dropped time in at least one event if not all of their events. Our swimmers rock!
