Please note that due to construction at Monte Vista High School Community Pool, all aquatics programming is subject to change. We also will be following all health orders specified by Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS), and the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which may lead to changes in aquatics programming.
