The Aquasize team is ready to welcome you back! Aquasize members who would like to utilize the pool for individual exercises may do so by scheduling an appointment that is designated for aquasize. Members will be asked to adhere to this time or forfeit use of the pool for that day. Time slots are 50 minutes and begin:

Monday - Thursday

4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 
8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

A maximum of 6 people per hour would be allowed into the pool provided they can maintain social distancing. During this phase there will be no classes offered.
