AQUATICS CENTER

Aquatics Center

Briarcliff Manor

Take the plunge… We have two large swimming pools to accommodate lots of swim activities. Our Lap Pool is kept just a little cool at 79 – 82 degrees for our lap swimmers, swim team and deep water exercise class participants. The warmer Program Pool is kept at about 84 – 88 degrees and is used primarily for swim lessons and group aquatic classes. It also has lanes for lap swimming. The zero entry section of the pool is the perfect place for our littlest swimmers to play. The whirlpool is for members and guests age 18 and over. Please note the precautions for use listed at the whirlpool area, or refer to our Aquatics Rules & Policies page.

Our water is kept clean and safe using an innovative mixed-oxidant disinfectant system. Our water will feel gentler on your skin. Make sure your whole family practices water safety. We have lessons for 6 month olds through adults — all our swim instruction is American Red Cross certified. Kids younger than 14 can use our lap pool if they have passed a lap swim evaluation. Kids under 10 must be accompanied by an adult in our Aquatic Center unless they pass a junior swim evaluation or are in an aquatics program. Please see a lifeguard to schedule an evaluation.
