The “Southern California Public Pool Operators Association” (SCPPOA) established its roots in 1953. Since its inception, our association has partnered and worked with approximately 65 agencies within Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. With over 200 members, we provide a forum where aquatic professionals come together to exchange ideas and shape the future of aquatics. SCPPOA provides opportunities for leadership, education, training, and resources to all levels of aquatic and recreation professionals.


Members enjoy reduced rates, access to resources such as directory listing, job postings, receive notices, updates, and much more.

Meetings will be held in-person at various aquatic sites. Can’t make the in-person meeting? No problem – a zoom recorded option will be available at the end of the week in our Members Only Corner.

Winter and Spring Workshops will still be planned as normal. For any locations interested in hosting, please reach out to us!
