General Information

Our Therapeutic Swim and Exercise Program is designed to provide exercise classes and swim time for those who have been prescribed aqua-therapy by their physician.

Note: We do not have therapists or doctors on staff. Be sure to ask your doctor what exercises you can and cannot do in the pool. Hours are limited; please see schedule for class times and fees.

A wheelchair ramp, ladders, and graduated steps provide access to the pool. Our pool temperature is kept between 90-93 degrees. Please bring any pool equipment you may need.

We have a weight room available for use during certain times for an additional fee. Clearance is needed from your doctor. Hours are limited; please call for class times and fees.

Information about Aides

We do not have aides. Swimmers must bring a friend or family member with them to the pool if assistance will be needed (a separate personal information sheet must be submitted for each aide). An aide is a responsible adult who will accompany the client in the dressing room and stay within arms reach in the pool at all times.
