Aquatic Center

The Competition Pool

At 50 meters long, there's enough room in this indoor pool to hold multiple events simultaneously. These include a swim practice for the local USA Swimming and high school teams, have lap lanes open for community members, and a water aerobics class.

The pool is equipped to hold national and international swim meets, water polo matches, and synchronized swimming events, with complete setups for touchpads and electronic timing systems. 

With seats for almost 1,000 spectators, this Aquatic Center is one of the largest in the region.

The Leisure Pool

When the focus is on fun, the indoor leisure pool is the place to relax. Water effects and tumble buckets take center stage.

Swimmers can float along the Lazy River with its constant current, slide down the meandering water slide, or kick back in the 18-person spa and let the warm jets of water, with temperatures ranging from 102 to 104 degrees, ease away aches and pains.

 Kept at a constant 84 to 86 degrees, the leisure pool is also available for arthritis movement and water walking classes. Both the competition pool and leisure pool are wheelchair accessible.

Support Areas

Tiled classrooms adjacent to the pool are great for aquatics classes that include instruction both in and out of the water. Men's and women's locker rooms feature showers, family changing areas, and coin-operated lockers.

lifeguard Staff

Staff guarding both the competition pool and leisure pool are certified by the American Red Cross.
