Who We Are

Temescal Aquatic Masters (TEME) is a United States Masters Swim Team that provides organized workouts and clinics for adults aged 18 and older. Workouts are open to adult swimmers (fitness, triathlete, competitive, non-competitive) who are dedicated to improving their fitness through swimming.


With a USMS registered membership of about 200 swimmers and 20 scheduled workouts per week, we are one of the largest and most diverse Masters swim teams in Oakland, CA. TEME’s home pool is the City of Oakland’s lovely 100 foot long, outdoor Temescal Pool. TEME is a membership-driven, 501(c)(3) organization with an active Board of Directors.

Our Pool

We practice at Temescal Pool located at 371 45th Street near Oakland Technical High School. Our pool is six lanes wide and an unusual 100 feet long. 

Team Governance 

Established in 1982, TEME is a USMS Masters Swim Team.  


In 2011, the team elected a traditional board of directors and registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Team Etiquette

We encourage a fun and safe fitness environment. To ensure that our workouts are positive experiences for everyone, we have adopted an etiquette policy. Which is available as part of the Team Handbook.
