Soda Aquatic Center
The Soda Aquatic Center opened to the public in 1999 and has three pools: a 3.5-foot-deep (1.1 m) pool, a diving well 10 to 13 feet (4.0 m) deep with two 1-meter springboards and two 3-meter springboards, and a competition pool. The 50 meter by 25-yard (23 m) competition pool is considered to be one of the fastest pools in the country.
The Soda Aquatic Center is the annual host of:
- The Water Polo Premier League
- The Orinda Moraga Pool Association's Swimming Championship Meet

The center replaced a large blacktop area which was known by students as the "backlot", where some students (sometimes called "backlotters") would congregate in large numbers during breaks to smoke and socialize.
