Mayor Tim Sbranti and local dignitaries will attend a groundbreaking ceremony this morning to celebrate the arrival of the Calphin Aquatic Club in Dublin.

The club will be located at 6175 Dublin Blvd. and is scheduled to be open by this summer.

Details of the new swim club found below:

Olympic Medalist, Xiaohong Wang, and ambitious entrepreneur founded the club in 2003; conducting swim lessons in nearby schools and local swimming pools. In 2008, Calphin built its first location in Fremont, and has quickly secured a firm spot in the bay area aquatic industry for its award winning learn-to-swim program and its state-of-the-art facility. Its customer base continues to grow as their unique curriculum proves to be highly effective.

The new facility at 6175 Dublin Blvd. is conveniently located in the heart of Dublin, right off the I-680 & I-580 freeways. Its 10,000sf building will house two heated indoor swimming pools. With a 25yd junior Olympic sized pool and a training pool, 

Calphin will be able to accommodate swimmers ranging from Beginner to Competitive levels. To ensure unsuppressed water quality, a top-notch filtration system will be implemented for fresher and cleaner pool water. The new aquatic facility will not only improve the quality of life for the local citizens, it also brings job opportunities and generates revenue for the city of Dublin. According to our construction plan, the facility will be completed in time for the Summer of 2014.

Wondering - if they plan on having low cost programs for seniors?? At CSU Northridge, they have 2 heated pools and a cool one all indoors. The bigger heating pools has in pool treadmills and bicycles. Great way to get in a workout for those of us with muscle, joint pain and mobility issues.

This company caters to quantity $$$ not quality. I had my children in with them in Fremont and they had as many swimmers as they could cram in each lane, terrible customer service, my kids left crying every day. Just read the reviews on yelp. We have lots of other options in the area, I am surprised this made the patch.

@Linda: We try to write about as many business openings and closings in Dublin as we can.
