Competition Pool closed 9am-11:30am Saturday April 21

The competition pool will be closed for a Dolphin Mock Meet and Dolphins Official Training. Therapy pool will be open regular hours 9am-1pm and the competition pool will open 11:30am - 1:00pm

Dolphins Swim Club - swim club practice begins (April 2nd) from 4pm-5:45pm

The pool will be very full during this time (135 registered dolphin swimmers) and you may want to adjust your schedule if you are a competition (lap) pool swimmer. If you do swim at this time you will be sharing lanes with our young swimmers.

Water safety classes start this week

Spring is here and Water Safety weeks are set to begin March 20th - This means the competition pool will be utilized during the times below for training our area's 2nd graders water safety before summer starts:

April 18 & 19 - 9:15am-10:45am & 12pm-2pm

April 30-May 2 - 845am-10:15am & 10:30am-12pm & 12:30-2pm

These times are estimates of when kids will arrive and each day will start with a video/talking session and then move to the water. We will try to keep a couple of lanes open for lap swimmers and we appreciate your patience and willingness to share lanes during these times.

Clean Sweep Closure

Scheduled for April 23-28, 2018 - All pools will be closed during this week to install new equipment. Learn more about the Pool Pak project here.

Of course we all want our own private lane and sometimes we share and make new friends. We have created a chart that shows when the pools are being used for classes or groups to help you come when it is a little more quiet. Of course, if you are looking for seclusion there are no guarantees - after all it is the Pool! Download the chart.


Not used to sharing? Need to brush up on your lap swim etiquette? view our etiquette refresher guide and be ready to share a lane.
