Reservations

Lap swimming lane reservations and family swim reservations can be made HERE

Lap swimming is for adults only at this time.

Please be respectful of others and only register for the time slots available to your group.

If you consider yourself a “hardcore” swimmer who is churning a lot of water and breathing heavy during your workout, please consider leaving the 10am-noon timeslot available for swimmers who would appreciate a calm swimming environment.

The lap swimming reservations will  be opened every Friday for the following week (Monday-Sunday).

CANCELLING a reservation can only be done by either emailing us at manager@laderarec.org or telephoning the office at 650-854-3242. Please be considerate of others and cancel reservations you can not use.

All members will be checked in at the gate by a lifeguard.
