The SOSC, a non - profit organization, offers quality sports training and <br />organized competitions that help improve the lives of people with disabilities. More than 200 <br />SOSC athletes will participate in swim practice and competitions at the Shamel Swimming Pool. <br />The PRCSD supports SOSC's continued use of the Shamel Swimming Pool, through June 30, <br />2016, because of the direct benefits City of Riverside residents receive from aquatics <br />programming offered by SOSC. <br />During the term of the Agreement, SOSC shall have priority access, during the specified days and <br />hours, to the Shamel Swimming Pool from February 1 through June 30. SOSC access will be <br />scheduled behind all City and City co- sponsored programs and activities. <br />24 -1 <br />
