General Rules

Children must be 14 years old to use the facility without adult supervision. This means that children 15 years old and under may not be dropped off without the supervision of someone who is at least 18 years old. Everyone must show their membership card at each visit. We reserve the right to suspend service to anyone who does not obey the Center rules or acts inappropriately while at the facility. You must check in at the front office with each visit.

Indoor Pool

Enjoy swimming laps or just playing in our heated indoor pool. The water temperature stays a comfortable 82-86 degrees. Life jackets are available on a first come first serve basis. You can check out a locker key from the front desk to store your dry clothes while you swim. There may be times when the pool is unavailable due to a party rental, swim club practice, a swim meet, or when we have reached maximum capacity. Pool space is available on a first come first serve basis. Monthly pass holders are not guaranteed an opportunity to swim when we have reached capacity. Appropriate swim attire is required, and you may not wear shoes in the pool area. Children under 12 must have adult supervision.


The gym is available for shooting ball by yourself or playing a game with others. Please be aware that the gym may not be available for use in the evenings and on Saturday mornings during Rec League Volleyball and Basketball seasons. A schedule of these games will be available at the front desk.  Please bring your own basketball.

Fitness Room

The fitness room is available for you to work out; however,  children must be at least 16 years of age to use the room. Children may not accompany an adult in the room. Anyone misusing the equipment will be asked to leave.

Indoor Track

13.5 laps around the track is one mile. Children under 16 are not allowed on the track without adult supervision, but may walk if in close proximity to a guardian.

I.D. Cards

You must present your I.D. card at the front desk at each visit. This helps us keep a record of attendance and maintain a safe environment for you.
