The Alameda Swimming Pool Association (ASPA), a non-profit corporation, was formed to oversee the operation and maintenance of the two pool sites and their programs. There are Trustees, board members (Franklin Pool and Lincoln Pool Board Members) as well as other sub-committees. The board members are strictly interested volunteers, they do not receive payment, for their time. The founding concept of the boards was to provide continuity and stability over time as well as experience and knowledge in the organization where the members, instructors, etc. are volunteers whose periods of interest and service usually coincides with the age and interest of their children. Each pool has its own board of directors to monitor and handle the day-to-day operation of the pool.

They Association carries full primary insurance and workmen’s compensation and does not rely on the USA Swimming or the City of Alameda as insurance providers.
