Adaptive Aquatics

Adaptive Aquatics is a one-on-one swim program for children and adults with special needs. This program is designed to help teach participants how to become more comfortable in the water while learning essential swimming techniques in a fun environment.  Each session consists of eight 30-minutes lessons, to be scheduled once per week for eight weeks.  This program is available at both pools.

  • Cost per session:  $65.00 for Residents
                                       $81.25 for Non-Residents
Deep Water Fitness

Deep water classes provide an opportunity to receive a cardiovascular workout without impact on the joints.  When suspended up to the chest in water, 75% - 90% of the body weight is cancelled.  Water buoyancy supports your weight and moving through the water provides resistance, which in turn strengthens the muscles.  This program is held at Meadows Park Pool.

  • Days: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (class will be held at the Swim Center on the first Monday of each month)
  • Time:  10:15 am - 11:15 am
  • Cost (per month): Residents $65.00
                                      Non-Residents $81.25
Video Swim Program

For those who dare to watch their own swimming technique, staff will film, edit, and format patrons’ swimming onto a DVD.  In addition to the DVD, stroke analysis will be provided by a qualified staff member.  This program is available at both pools.

  • Cost for 1st Video:  $30 for Residents
                                        $37.50 for Non-residents
