We are delighted to announce that the pool is filled and staff is hired at the Albany Aquatic Center. We are pleased to offer a variety of programs, classes and events to fit the many users and groups at our pool. A wide variety of programs will be offered throughout the year. Our programs will provide opportunities for individuals and families to participate in learning, exercise and recreational programs in a new and exciting atmosphere. The facility is open to Albany residents and non-residents, students and staff. Contact the pool for more information about our facility, programs, daily fees and membership options. 

The Albany High School Swim Team and Aquatic Center staff will be the first group to use the pool for practice and training purposes. After that it will be time for the community to come in and take a dip!

El Cerrito does not charge a fee for online registration and payment. So who is going to be the first customer tomorrow? Did the swim teams and staff enjoy the pool this weekend?

Ira, my son has been hired as a lifeguard, and he was at all-day training sessions both days this weekend. Sounded like work, not fun, but it was necessary to get everyone trained.
