Here we go again!!! We are still working towards a gradual progression to normal operations in our facility throughout 2021. Our most recent change to open swim registration elimination has been a great success while still being able to maintain safe swim guidelines during COVID. We feel confident this next change will once again yield success and movement towards normalcy. Beginning, Sunday, February 14, Adult Fitness Swim will not require pre-registration. Adult Fitness Swim will operate once again as a drop in activity as it was prior to COVID. There are still a few things that will remain unchanged.

1. Entrance into the Aquatic Center remains through the Party Room
2. Exit from the Aquatic Center remains out the West door through the Sundeck
3. Masks are still required for everything except actual water time.
4. We still encourage you to keep your distance between others
5. The pool will be cleared at 11:45am to ensure a noon closing.

Here is the biggest change we are making…
***Lap Lane Usage – Introducing “Timed Use Lane” Monday - Friday 6:00am-11:45am
We will be getting back to requiring lane sharing if people are waiting. Two people per lane is acceptable usage for lap swimming and is an industry standard for this type of activity. We ask that if you see someone waiting, invite them to join you. Let’s be proactive with our kindness towards each other.

We still understand we are not in the clear from COVID and there are some swimmers who would prefer to swim in their own lane. As you all know we have very limited resources to accommodate this request for every lane but after much consideration we feel we can designate one lane that allows for individual use.

We are introducing a TIMED USE LANE. This lane will be the western most lane closest to the windows. This lane will have a 45 minute Maximum usage. You will sign up on the board on deck to mark your place when waiting for use of this lane. The lifeguards will be available to lend assistance with this. Once your time is up, you will need to vacate this lane.

The water slide and hot tub continue to remain closed.
