The City of Sunnyvale runs a total of five pools in which a variety of aquatics classes at are offered during the spring, summer and fall months. These classes include swimming lessons for youth and adults of all ages, water aerobics classes, beginning water polo, and various American Red Cross courses such as Lifeguard Training, Water Safety Instructor, and Guardstart (a junior lifeguard program). All pools are heated, and are maintained at a temperature between 78 and 82 degrees F.
• Spring course registration occurs in early February of each year, and fall registration begins in August.
• Registration for spring and fall sessions occur either online, by phone, by fax, or in person at the Sunnyvale Community Center.
• Summer course registration begins in March of each year; registration for summer aquatics programs is accepted via phone, fax, online and in person at the Community Center until a week prior to the start date of the first summer session.
• Once summer lessons have started, registration for summer programs is only available at the pool where the class is being held.
When Sunnyvale’s five neighborhood pools close for the winter season, aquatics activities can be continued at the Fremont High School Pool, located at 1279 Sunnyvale-Saratoga Rd. The City contracts with California Sports Center to operate this swim complex. Fremont High School Pool is open year-round.
