Adult Swim

Alameda Pool holds an adult swim at 4:00 p.m. daily.   Adult swims may begin at 1:00 p.m. , at the discretion of the supervisor on duty.  At this time only swimmers 18 years of age or older are permitted to be in the water. Children age 5 and under are permitted in the zero entry area only if accompanied directly by an adult 18 years of age or older in the water.

“S” Test Program

Any swimmer 12 years or under that wishes to use the diving board or yellow slide in the deep well must first pass our “S” test program. The swimmer will be required to swim across the diving well and back without assistance and not stopping to hold onto the safety rope. The swimmer will follow closely to the safety rope under the direct supervision of a lifeguard. Once the swimmer successfully completes the swim, the swimmer will be awarded a “swimmer wristband”. Only one wristband per swimmer will be issued. Replacements may be purchased for $2.00. The special wristband needs to be displayed on the swimmer at all times when using the diving well area. If interested in taking the “S” test, please stop by the First Aid station and see any of our lifeguards to schedule a time to attempt the test.
