Welcome to Southgate Swim Club! 
1-7 PM


We are a volunteer organized membership community pool established circa 1960 that continues to serve Hayward's Southgate and surrounding neighborhoods. We strive to create space for families, friends and neighbors to relax, connect and enjoy the warm summer months. We also proudly serve our community by hosting the Southgate Penguins Swim Team, and offer our space for community organization use.

TO MASK OR NOT TO MASK: Currently, masks are not required for outdoor activities and we do not require vaccination status to enter our facility.


Covid-19 surely brought us all to a new way of engaging as a community! While we are still experiencing a pandemic, we are monitoring and following Alameda County guidance. We will post updates both here, and on our Facebook page.  We respect everyone's right to choose what is best for them and will honor your choice without scrutiny. We respectfully request that members and guests do the same. If you have questions or concerns, please email us
