Aquatic Program Descriptions

Unlimited group classes are FREE with your membership

Open Swim — Children and Adults alike will enjoy playing in the Leisure Pool, floating around the Lazy River and riding the 2 story slide. When the Open Swim is in the Lap Pool, enjoy swimming laps, taking a plunge off the diving board, playing basketball or just floating on the toys. Please remember, all children under 7 years of age must have an Adult in the water directly supervising them.

Adult Swim — Those 16 years of age and older can use this quiet time in the Leisure Pool to swim laps, walk in the Current Channel or use our equipment to do whatever water fitness activities they choose to do without any of the spray features turned on.

Lap Swim — Swimmers of all ages and abilities can take advantage of the 6 lane, 25 yard Lap Pool. Fast, medium and slow swimmers alike can find a lane to swim in. Feel free to use our aquatic equipment to help you better meet your fitness needs.

Senior Swim — A Lap Swim time set aside for those that are 62 years
of age and over.

Family Swim — A chance for parents to have fun with their children in the water or to work on those skills that their children are trying to master in swim lessons. All of the water features are turned on for this swim and the usual attendance is less that the Open Swim time. All those under the age of 18 must have an Adult in the water with them.

Parent and Tot Swim — A more relaxing time for parents to help their children under the age of 3 adjust to the water. The water features may be turned on upon request for this swim. There may be other programs occurring in the pool at the same time.

Water Aerobics — A high energy aerobics class done in the Leisure Pool where the depth of the water ranges from 3 ½ feet to 4 ½ feet. Those that have mobility and joint problems can get their heart rate up and use the resistance and buoyancy of the water to exercise without the ground pounding impact that land based exercises have. No swimming experience is needed.

Low Impact Aerobics — A slower paced water aerobics class taught in the Leisure Pool that combines; aerobics, strength building, range of motion and flexibility into one fun class. No swimming experience is needed.

Deep Water Aerobics — This class is taught in the Lap Pool where the depth of the water ranges from 3 ½ feet to 12 ½ feet. Put on one of our flotation belts and take part in an aerobics class that eliminates the effects of gravity and has exercises that use the resistance of the water to build strength, increase range of motion and flexibility. Weaker swimmers can get the same benefits of the class by staying in the shallow end of the pool.

Advanced Training — Programs such as Lifeguard Training, Instructor Training and swim team workouts may be scheduled
during this time.
