Valued Members and Guests, 

We are so pleased to let you know that we are welcoming back lap and open swimmers next Tuesday, September 15.   At this time we will only be taking appointments with Aquatic Center Members.  Registration for appointments wiill be available on Monday, September 14. However, we anticipate allowing non-members to participate in lap and open swim in the near future.  We are looking forward to adding more time slots in the future, and we thank you for your patience as we phase in our programming gradually.  The schedule for the next several weeks will be the following for both pools:

Tuesday and Thursday will be 9am-noon &  4pm-8pm

Friday 4pm-8pm

Saturday 12:15-3pm

We are not beginning group water exercise classes or Tiger Sharks Swim Team at this time, and we will communicate when we are able to provide these programs again. 


If you would like to swim during these times you MUST make an appointment the day prior to the appointment. Online registration begins at 9 am and ends at midnight.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept same day appointments, nor can we allow drop-in appointments.  Appointment blocks are 45 minutes for the Therapy Pool (7 swimmers at a time) and 1 hour and 15 minutes for the main pool (16 swimmers at a time).  Each member is only allowed one appointment per day until we can increase capacity. Appointments may be booked at registration.swimcharlotte.org and clicking the "adult aquatics" tab.  Be sure to complete your registration and digitally sign the COVID-19 waiver and Code of Conduct.  You may also register over the phone, or call if you have any questions.  However, we can only book appointments when office staff is available to do so, and encourage you to try the online method. 


1.)  Upon arrival, members will have a brief health screening in the main lobby with our Aquatic Staff.   There will be markings on the floor designated for each pool for you to stand 

2.)  Swimsuits must be worn to and from the Aquatic Center.  Our locker rooms and changing facilities will not be provided to any group.  There are spaces marked on our deck benches where you may place your belongings during your swim.  These spaces are cleaned between appointments.

3.)  All activities (visits to the pool) will require pre-registration, or call-ahead appointments.  No drop in visits.  

4.)  To accommodate all competition pool lap swimmers/walkers, we will have our pool set up with 6 lanes (meters over the deep end).  There is a maximum of 2 swimmers per lane.  This will allow for those who water walk to utilize the shallow end of our pool.  Please be patient as we figure out what pool set-up best suits the needs of our patrons as we open.

5.)  Social distancing will be required in all areas-- 6 feet minimum.  Please do your best in the pool and on deck to help keep us open!

6.)  Masks will be required in all dry land areas.  Please remove your mask before getting into the pool.

.) There will be an elevated level of sanitation in all bathrooms and public touch points throughout the day.  Main lobby restrooms will remain open.

 8.)  no kickboards, pull buoys, or any other floatation equipment will be provided until further notice.  You are encouraged to bring your own equipment if you would like to use it.

 We understand that these restrictions and requirements are not ideal.  However, they are there for the safety of everyone.  If you have recurring billing for your membership, you will be billed on the 15th of September, unless you contact us to continue your membership hold.  We appreciate your support, and look forward to seeing you back at the pool!

 Dan Christian, Aquatic Supervisor 





We are excited to announce that we are able to provide swim lessons once again!  However, we have had to make some changes to our lessons and check-in procedures in order to comply with any and all State of Michigan executive orders.  There are additional waivers and code of conduct to complete during the registration process.   To register, click on the youth aquatics tab.    Below is some information on what changes to expect with our lessons.  


  1.  Masks must be worn by everyone inside the building, unless a person is entering or in the water—no exceptions.  This is something we have to do in order to provide these lessons, and we appreciate your understanding.  We have hand sanitizer on premises, and have increased cleaning frequency throughout the facility. 
  2. We must have your code of conduct and waiver completed at or before the first swim lesson .
  3. Anybody entering the building must be screened and have their temperature taken (touchless) by our staff.  We will be asking you to enter the building directly onto the therapy pool deck .  Spectators will be instructed where they may view the lesson upon arrival and screening.
  4. Any participant in level one, preschool, or infant/toddler courses must have a parent in the water—level 2 is optional.  The reason we are doing this is because our instructors, who will be wearing face shields, may not come into contact with your swimmers unless it is an emergency situation.  We need your help to provide support to your swimmer when they attempt to float and participate in other skills.  Again, we must maintain a 6 foot distance unless it is an emergency.  Swimmers without an accompanying adult may be asked not to participate.  If swimmers in levels 2-6 require support to float or do any beginner stroke, they may be asked not to participate as they should be in a more novice level. 
  5. Due to current CDC recommendations, our locker rooms remain closed.  Only the main pool lobby bathrooms will be open. We ask that you arrive in your suit and leave in your suit.  We understand this is inconvenient.  Again, this is something we must insist upon in order to provide the lesson.

If, after reading the above, you would like to wait until there are less restrictions involving lessons you may absolutely wait until a later session date.
