These classes include swimming lessons for youth and adults of all ages, water aerobics classes, beginning water polo, and various American Red Cross courses such as Lifeguard Training, Water Safety Instructor, and Guardstart (a junior lifeguard program). All pools are heated, and are maintained at a temperature between 78 and 82 degrees F.
