Adult Aquatics Programs

The Downtown Community Center strives to promote continuing active lifestyles through our Adult Aquatics Programs. We offer both open swim sessions and various swim classes for all abilities. All Adult Aquatics classes are drop-in and included in Center Membership.

See our Winter/Spring 2019 Schedule here.

Adult Lap Swim 
During designated hours, lanes are reserved specifically for Adult Lap Swimming. Please note that we can only guarantee lanes during these specified times - lanes cannot be guaranteed during other Family Swim hours.
Adult Beginner and Intermediate Swim Classes
These drop-in, Members-Only classes are great for Adults who have fears of the water, are new to swimming, or want to learn proper strokes and breathing enabling them to swim for longer distances. Our swim instructors for these classes are trained specifically to teach adults beginner and intermediate swimming skills. These classes take place at the same time in the pool, but we offer two groups each week based on skill level so we can be sure to offer the most appropriate level of instruction for each individual.
Adult Advanced Swim Classes: Endurance/Fitness and Technique
These drop-in, Members-only Adult classes are designed to help advanced swimmers improve their speed and swimming endurance (in our Fitness/Endurance class) or learn new strokes and refine their stroke technique (in our Technique class). Join our Swim Team coach and advanced-level instructors for weekly sessions, customized for the participants of each particular class. Our experienced instructors will help you achieve your swimming goals.
Glide Fit @ The Downtown Community Center
Bringing the party to the pool, this class will introduce the findamentals to working out on top of an unstable surface in the water: our floating platforms. You'll be introduced to a variety of exercises to build strength from head to toe while raising your heart rate - with the added bonus of firing stabilizers that often go unused - in a fun new way.

Classes are FREE for Center Members or available to non-members for a fee. Visit our Glide Fit page for more info and to reserve your spot!
