Services Offered:

Lap Swim

Indoor lap swimming is held Mon./Tue./Thu./Fri. from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.  Open to all authorized patrons, aged 18 and over; we swim circle pattern in order to maximize the use of the facility.  Just like driving on the road, circle swimming has just a few rules and six people can share a lane easily. (1) Swim counterclockwise keeping your shoulder near the lane line and swim around the black line on the bottom (2) Make your turns in the center of the lane. (3) Stop only on the walls and tuck yourself in the corner if you do have to stop. (4) Pick an appropriate lane for your speed.  Faster swimmers should swim in the center lanes, medium level to the far left lanes (near the bridges) and lower level or slower swimmers in the two far right lanes by the wall.  The only equipment authorized is the pull buoys and gloves provided by MWR.  If you need a workout – think about trying our Master’s program.  And don’t forget to ask the lifeguard to record your mileage – there are prizes!!!!

Summer Camps

The MWR Aquatic summer camps are an amazing treat! Registration begins in January.  We offer a little bit of everything for kids in a half-day format!  Morning Camps include Sailing Camp, Puddlejumpers, and Water Safety Patrol.  Afternoon camps include Marine Science, Paddleboard, Beach Volleyball and Kayak camps.  Our longest running camp is the Junior Lifeguard Camp – a three week morning camp that is amazingly fun and teaches a wide array of skills.  Each year is different and most of our Junior Lifeguards come back every year until they are old enough to guard with MWR!

Lifeguard Training

We offer both Pre-Course training and Lifeguard Certification classes.  In order to be certified as a Lifeguard, candidates need to be able to pass a pre-course test that does require a little bit of practice if you have not swam since summer!  Lifeguard Prep classes are held on Fridays at 7:00 p.m. for only $5; lifeguard certification classes are $15 for Pre-test and $175 for Certification class. Call the office for dates 452-9429.

Swimming Lessons

Lessons for both adults and children are available. Children group lessons are held on Tuesdays and Fridays early evenings.  Private lessons (one-on-ones) are available for both adults and children and can be scheduled early evenings, late evenings and on weekends.  Great instructors and the ability to choose what you want to learn make 1-on-1 a great choice for those with busy schedules!

Training – Pre-Team, Swim Team and Master’s Training

Swimming is a lifelong sport and can be a lifetime passion.  Training is not just doing a practice off of the internet.  It is working within a team structure and challenging yourself to swim technically well, swim faster, stronger, to learn a new skill, and to be motivated to just come!  Whether a 5 year old starting out in the pre-swim team program (Goslings), a 6 - 18 year old on the year around base swim team (PNY), or a competitive/fitness/ or triathlete in the adult Master’s Program – we try to meet your needs! We have on deck coaching by certified coaches who encourage everyone to meet their potential!

Aqua Aerobics

Classes are held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m at the Indoor Pool.  This class for adults is low impact and high energy which makes it easy on the joints but with the water’s natural resistance, every step is more challenging and can really tone your muscles!!  Latin – International – and Pop Standards music add to the excitement and pace of this class! - Free for authorized patrons, $4 for guests. Mondays are deep water aqua aerobics, Tuesdays are Aqua Zumba, and Thursday is shallow water class.

Corry Pool – Building 3735 (Corry Station)

The Corry Pool is an L-shaped pool located behind the Corry Station Family Fitness Center and is equipped with a shallow and deep end.  There is a ramp leading into the pool that allows easy access for our handicap patrons.  We also have two separate rock walls, a dive area and two designated 25-meter lap lanes available.
