Piedmont Swim Team PO Box 20006, Oakland, CA94620 The Piedmont Swim Team offers competitive swimming for young men and women between the ages of 5 and 17. The swim teams…More are divided by skill between the Stingray, Pre-Senior, Senior and High School Fitness groups. The teams also have regular swim meets at places like Mills College, the El Cerrito Community Center and the Sunnyvale Swim Club. If you’d like your child to join, please download an application from the Piedmont Swim Team website. The Piedmont Swim Team is sponsored by Nike.
On hot days, the Piedmont Swim Club is a magnet for Piedmonters wanting to cool off in one of the club's three…More outdoor pools.
Though it's a private club, because the facility is located on leased city land and membership represents about a quarter of Piedmont residents, the whole community feels ownership.
The Piedmont Swim Team (which is a separate entity), Recreation Department Programs, and the Piedmont High School water polo teams use the facility. Additionally, the club swings open its doors to non-member residents every Friday, except for the third week of the month when Saturday is the public access day; admission is $5 for children 1 to 15 and $10 for adults.
Earning a "white patch" to swim in the big pool (the one with basketball hoops and diving board) by passing a proficiency test is a rite of passage for Piedmont kids. Swimming lessons and Red Cross authorized safety courses are open to all, and many graduates return as lifeguards and instructors.
