Off-season Lifeguard Hours

Please closely supervise your family members and guests while on Fairbrae premises. Please respect the pool rules, and make sure to wear your sunscreen!

Summer Lifeguard Hours

Typically, summer swim season begins on Memorial Day and goes through Labor Day each year. On weekdays, we will have Lifeguards on deck from 12 PM – 8 PM. Weekend coverage is from 1 PM – 8 PM.

Wading Pool

The wading pool is currently closed. Please keep your children from entering the wading pool.

The Fairbrae Manta Ray Swim Team provides an opportunity for swimmers age 5 through 18 to develop their swimming skills, sportsmanship and fellowship. With the Manta Rays you will find a supportive team environment, low-key competition and positive attitudes.

The swim season runs from late April (when group practice starts) through late July. A practice meet kicks off league competition in early June followed by four or five meets during the season.  The season culminates with a championship meet and an end of season awards banquet the same evening. Training is also provided for parents to teach time keeping, scoring, judging, and other tasks associated with running a swim meet.

Manta Ray families also enjoy a number of social events throughout the season. Events include team dinners, a team overnight, and a team outing. “Fun Friday” socials are hosted by swim team families throughout the season and are a nice way to relax and get to know each other while the kid’s workout.

Thank you for contacting the Manta Rays Registrar, 2024 season.

Aaron Johnson: Hello I’m Aaron, a swim instructor based in Sunnyvale. I have over 28 years experience teaching swimming to kids and adults. My students typically improve very quickly,   whether they are complete beginners or need refinement with their swimming technique. 

I customize each lesson to the needs of you. I’m a teacher in my professional career with lots of experience with special needs students. I know swimming can be a fearful  experience for many, but with my patience and encouraging teaching style I always see lots of improvement. I emphasize proper swimming technique, as that is how one  excels in the water. I prefer one-on-one swim lessons, but under certain circumstances I can teach a joint lesson. I like to start teaching around age 4 and up. That includes  includes adults. 
Contact: I prefer people to text me at my cell number: (408) 529-8700
