Open Swim

Our designated open swim times are available to all members and day-use visitors for recreational and fitness swimming. Our pool features equipment for a range of activities including diving board, climbing wall, and basketball hoop. We also have pool noodles and dive toys available.

Designated Lap Swim

The designated lap swim times are set aside specifically for those that want to swim laps without the distraction of any other aquatics activities. During peak times, lane ropes and “circle swimming” patterns will be required.

Programs

Preschool Gym & Swim

This program is designed for our youngest beginning swimmers. The focus is on developing the basics of aquatic movement to foster comfort in the water and build confidence. Kids are exposed to personal safety concepts, basic rescue techniques, and boating safety. Stroke development is also introduced to set a foundation for further technique development as kids grow and become more comfortable in the water.
