The structure of the ASPA, as originally conceived by Mr. Weeden, Mr. Stolte and their associates, has worked successfully for years. It has provided a long-term stability that has enabled the pools and membership to stay on course in serving the families of Alameda, in spite of upheavals and changes in world, national, and local politics, changes in the economy and energy crisis.  There are currently 600 swimming families belonging to the ASPA. The Association has been cognizant of changing needs and has made adjustments while maintaining the primary goal of children first.
