COVID-19 UPDATES - September 14,  2020

Important Changes to Lap Swim Registration Rules & Procedures

In efforts to refine our policies and procedures, the following changes will be made and instituted for lap swim registration. These changes will go into effect on September 16, 2020 for registration:

  1. Registration will begin at 12:00am each Wednesday for Emeryville Residents (Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning). Non-Residents will be able to register beginning at 9:00am on Wednesday mornings. Please visit for lap swim reservations. 
  2. Due to County guidelines limiting lap swimmers in our facility, we will be limiting lap swimmers to a maximum of three (3) swims per week. By limiting the number of swims each person has, we hope more people will have the opportunity to enjoy the pool each week. 

For any questions, please call 510-596-4395 or email Thank you for your patience and understanding as we improve our programs. We look forward to seeing you at the pool!


We will be launching public lap swim on September 8th. All other programs will be introduced at a later date. Please see below for program and registration information. Click here for our full program policies and procedures

We are operating under guidelines set forth by the Alameda County Health Department. Please note that hours are limited due to reduced pool capacity, which prevents us from operating multiple programs simultaneously. We hope to add additional program hours in the future. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
