Our aquatics facility was built to host the US National Swimming and Diving Championships in 1959, and since then has remained the premier swimming facility in the Palo Alto area.
Located less than 10 minutes north of Cupertino, our swimming facility is one of the few country clubs in northern California with an Olympic Size swimming pool. Today, programs include year-round lap swimming, swim teams, master swim program, and swim lessons & instruction for all ages.
Our development programs can fit any age or skill set with programs such as our private and group swim lessons, the summer swim team, and our masters swim program. All of our programs are overseen by our exceptional Aquatics Director and 2004 Olympic Swimmer, Dana Kirk and will exceed even the highest standards. We also offer our pool side Barracuda Grill in the summer months.
FHCC offers a wonderful “Learn to Swim Program” for all ages, based on the American Red Cross Curriculum. We emphasize on the adaptation to a new environment, and making the “non-swimmer” to “swimmer” transition a comfortable and enjoyable one. All of our lessons are taught by gentle, highly qualified instructors in our heated 50- meter Olympic size pool.
We have a variety of private, and semi-private lessons available for all ages and abilities. Upon request, adult and extended level lessons are also available. Lessons are available during spring and the summer months and are offered upon request and instructor availability.
