Competition Pool

State-of-the-Art Pool for Lap Swimming, Teams, Polo and fun

Our 11 lane, 8 foot deep, competition and training pool is 25 meters by 25 yards and provides both competitive and recreational lap swimmers with an ideal environment. We maintain the pristine water at 78-80 degrees. We offer programs for all levels of swimmers including a Masters swim program, a competitive swim team for all age children, Red Cross courses, adult and child swim lessons and we host a number of USS Swim meets throughout the year. Our elevated bleacher section can hold 400 spectators. Depending on the season we also run programs such as water polo, scuba diving, kayaking, and other aquatic programs. Rental arrangements for schools, swim teams, and social groups can be made.

“Best pool in the State of Vermont – and the surrounding area. The pool is spotless, clean , obviously well maintained.”  –Happy Swimmer
