Aquatics Center

The eight lane, 25 yard pool is housed under wide, expansive wooden beams.

Swimming pool

The Kilpatrick Athletic Center pool fosters an aquatic community for all ages and levels. We use locally sourced spring water and maintain a minimal level of chlorination; this leaves our water soft and without chemical smell or taste, while also making it safe to swim in. The fully-equipped locker rooms are spacious and spotless.

Our dedicated staff of professionals, led by Aquatic Administrator Jim Hennessey and Swim & Aquatic Safety Coordinator Bill Meier, offer the most up-to-date training and exercise techniques available. All of our team coaches, swim instructors and aqua fitness teachers utilize their individual styles and expertise to a common end: creating satisfied pool enthusiasts.
