Friends of Carmel Aquatics (FOCA) is offering annual memberships and asking for your help in securing donations to complete the Bob Walthour Aquatic Center at Carmel High School.  Many people on the Monterey Peninsula are aware that the CHS pool is probably the finest swim facility in the area.  What many do not realize is that this facility remains sadly unfinished.  Ever wonder what those large metal stantions off to the side of the pool are?  They’re unfinished building supports for a planned pool covered classroom area, complete with audio-visual teaching capability and heat.  Currently there is no covered area to keep towels and personal items dry from the elements while users are in the pool.  This covered facility is the first project to be completed but requires funding from the community.  Other projects include a water fountain, bathrooms/locker rooms, and repair of the facility’s timing/touch-pad systems.

Please join FOCA with an annual membership ($25).  Brochures are available at the pool or may be downloaded as pdf files here.FOCAprintF FOCAprintB   For more information, see www.carmelpool.org

  1. Can people still purchase a tile?

    • I believe that there are a few tile spaces still available. There are many more projects left to complete at the CHS Pool! Please contact Roger Langland for information. You may contact me at 831-626-1844. Ken
