Serving a diverse community and population, Southwestern Community College District provides a wide range of dynamic and quality educational programs and comprehensive services. The District’s Crown Cove Aquatic Center (CCAC) is committed to facilitating access for mission-related activities and we appreciate your interest in our venue and programs.
Support for external events and activities by community users is performed in accordance with California’s Civic Center Act. Requests for access to and use of CCAC’s services, programs and/or equipment will be processed on a priority basis, with College credit courses receiving highest priority.
Depending upon the nature of the Facility Request, the College’s collaborative partner, California State Parks (Silver Strand State Beach), may have additional requirements including permits and separate facility rental fees. CCAC will assist in coordinating the scheduling activity with Silver Strand State Beach and help facilitate this process to the best of our abilities. Adherence to all Silver Strand State Beach and Southwestern policies is expected by all user groups.
CCAC fees are established based upon the type of activity requested and the level of support required. All water activities require certified personnel at an established ratio of participants-to-instructor. CCAC will work with each requester to define costs and payment guidelines in advance of the approved event.
In addition to water and recreational activities (surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle board, sailing, Hawaiian outrigger canoe and sand volleyball), CCAC also has a meeting room with a 60-70 capacity, fully equipped with smart-room technology (overhead LCD projector integrated with Internet-ready PC for supporting presentations). Catering is an option that can be provided or supported through a list of preferred vendors.
All requests must be submitted with the CCAC Facility Request Form (no exceptions) and must be received, at minimum, 3 weeks prior to the event. Missing information will cause a delay in processing your request.
