Sales for aquatic center passes are on hold until further notice. Opening day for the aquatic centers, swimming lessons and all programming offered at the pools will be evaluated in mid-May and changes will be communicated once the details have been determined.

    Can I sign up for swimming lessons in person?
    Once a date has been determined, swimming lesson registration will be done online this year. If you are unable to complete registration online, please contact our office.

    What if I already bought my aquatic center pass?
