Please check the schedule or call the center for more information. There is no charge to members; non-member youth (ages three to 17) and seniors pay $4, adults pay $5. If you have a group of eight or more, you can get a group rate of $3.50 per person if you reserve in advance. The indoor pool has the same pricing.
Over a dozen different swimming classes are offered year-round for children ages three to five. Discounts are available if enrolling more than one child. Private lessons are not scheduled at the center, though arrangements can be made to use the pool for private lessons.
