Registration and Fee Information

PLEASE NOTE: Contra Loma will be closed in 2023 due to repairs. Roberts Pool is undergoing a full renovation and we will not be offering lessons in 2023 but we look forward to seeing you all again in 2024! 

There are several ways to register:

1) Phone: 1-888-327-2757; select option 2

2) On-line: Search for "Contra Loma Swim." Make sure you sign up for the correct location.

Registering by phone and on-line closes the Thursday prior to the first day of each session.

Note to Waitlisted Participants: If spaces become available, our reservations department will contact the waitlisted participants and get them into the class.  If you are still on the waitlist after the Friday prior to lessons and have not been contacted by our reservations department, DO NOT show up to the first day. You will not be able to get a space in lessons at that time.

NOTE: If registered participants fail to appear on the first day of each session without giving notice, their space may be forfeited. Participants should call the facility’s lifeguard station to request that their space be saved.

IMPORTANT: Participant’s waiver must be completed and submitted to the Lifeguard Staff on the first day of participation during check-in. A valid (dated and signed) waiver is required for each session. Please go to the “Forms” tab to print a waiver. 

Adaptive lessons can only be scheduled by signing up for the group lesson at the desired time and calling the Contra Loma lifeguard station at 510-690-6626 to discuss swimming goals and specific needs.
