Our Structure

The Alameda Swimming Pool Association (ASPA), a nonprofit organization, 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.

The 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.


ASPA ("Alameda Swimming Pool Association") is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization, with tax ID or EIN number: 94-6092841. Our address associated with the EIN is 1361 Park St., #211, Alameda, CA 94501. Under the current tax laws, voluntary donations to ASPA (i.e., payments that are not required membership dues or other fees) may be tax deductible as charitable contributions. Please consult with your tax advisor.   

If you are employed, please check with your employer to see if they have a corporate matching gift program. Many employers will match employee contributions, which doubles the value of your gift to ASPA.
