Swymnuts Lucas Valley


Please note, this pool closes for major renovations until further notice. This closure begins on November 11, 2018.

Our Swymnuts pool that we use at Lucas Valley is located at 1201 Idylberry Rd, San Rafael, CA. (Cross street is Mt. Shasta.) That is about 2.1 miles west of Highway 101 in Marin County. Take the Smith Ranch or Lucas Valley Road exit an head west, turning right on Mt. Shasta Drive and left on Idylberry Rd.

To swim with us at Lucas Valley, you must be able to swim 25 yards (1 length of the pool) freestyle without stopping. If you aren’t quite to that level yet, we offer swim lessons which will get you to that level. Information on swim lessons can be found here.

We have a very nice 6-lane, 25 yard pool and a loose knit and friendly group of swimmers to greet you. Come see us!

Pool closes 11-11-18 for major renovations until further notice. Please join us at our other pools Marin JCC or IVC.

We offer 9 workout opportunities each week. Our practice schedule:

5:30-6:30 a.m. Tuesday through Friday

8:15-9:30 a.m. Tuesday through Friday

Saturday mornings: 7:00-8:30 a.m.


You will need to be registered with United States Masters Swimming (USMS) to swim with us. You can do so using the Join/Renew USMS link in the right column of every page on this Swymnut website. USMS membership is required for our insurance coverage. If you have never been a USMS member before and wish to try us out, you may do so with this USMS 30-Day Trial Form. Complete it, sign it, and bring it to your first workout. After the 30-day period, you will be required to join USMS in order to continuing swimming with us. If you have been a member of USMS in the past, sorry, but you’ll need to rejoin USMS in order to swim with us.

See the Fees tab for our most updated fee schedule for Lucas Valley. Those who swim with us at Lucas Valley can also swim with us at Indian Valley! If you have a punch card or are paying monthly dues at Lucas Valley or IVC, you can swim the other pool at no additional charge. Please note this does not apply to our JCC location. You will need a separate punch card purchased at the JCC to swim there.

Come take the plunge with us. You won’t regret it, and we are all pretty sure you will become addicted to the camaraderie and fitness you’ll get from swimming. We have! It is a wonderful sport that we all hope to do for life.

  1. Hi,
    Just relocated to Pacheco Valley and am interested in trying out the group.
    Is the Lucas Valley pool open year round ?
