Swimming Pool – Programs & Classes


The Aquatics Complex consists of an 8-lane competition pool and a 3 lane training pool.  The competition pool has 1m and 3m diving board, starting blocks and is handicap accessible.  The training pool is a shallow warmer pool geared for swimming lessons and aquatic exercise.
