Swim With Us!

Pool Swimming

We currently train at the Belmont Plaza Outdoor Pool which is a brand-new 50 meter x 25 meter pool with a moveable bulkhead. The moveable bulkhead will allow for either a 25 yard or 50 meter workout. This pool will be at our service a good, long time. It will be around at least until construction is complete on the new large build-out project in which two (2) new 50 meter pools are scheduled to be built in the footprint of the existing Belmont Plaza pool and park area.

The Historic Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool

Our primary training grounds has been the historic Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool complex in Belmont Shore, Long Beach, California. The original Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool hosted the 1968 Olympic Trials and countless other age-group, high-school, collegiate, national and international swimming, diving, and water polo championships. Almost all swimmers in the area have competed at Belmont Plaza during their competitive careers.
 
Unfortunately, in recent years there have been many leaks and major issues with this legendary pool. In early 2013, the pool building was determined to be “structurally unsound” in case of an earthquake and has been condemned to be torn down. Conveniently, the locker rooms, restrooms, and front lobby are  able to be used because that part of the building is still considered safe.

The New Belmont Outdoor Pool

The new 50 Meter by 25 meter pool is our current home.  Its purpose is to provide immediate water space to swimming, water polo, and recreational level programs. It will have a moveable bulkhead and be able to be used in many different configurations. 
 
Our Master’s program will be able to swim both the 25 Yard Short Course format and the 50 Meter Long Course format on various days throughout the week.
 
This above ground pool is part of a master plan by the City of Long Beach to eventually re-design the entire Belmont Plaza complex. The master plan includes two (2) 50 meter pools, including a diving platform/tower, new locker rooms, classrooms, storage and offices.
