    Enjoy our 25-yard, six-lane indoor swimming pool seven days a week year round. Staffed by certified aquatic specialists and qualified instructors, we offer swimming classes for.all levels of ability, from beginner to advanced.

    Swim on your own during lap swim and open swim times, or take advantage of one of our classes to improve your swimming stroke and increase your stamina. Whatever your goal, you'll leave relaxed and refreshed.

    Our age group swim team (5-16 years), the Twisters, is a metropolitan area swimming powerhouse. The team practices 6-days per week and many of our swim program graduates go on to compete in area competitions. We regularly send swimmers to junior Olympic swim meets and have even sent one swimmer to the Olympic trials. With over 140 swim team members, children and teenagers build friendships as well as a physical and mental discipline that serves them for their entire lives.

    Swimming Pool FAQs

  •  Q: Why do I need a photo ID to go swim?

    A: For your own safety; in case of an emergency we can provide vital information to the rescue personnel.  

     
     

     Q: Do I need to wear a swimming cap?

    A: You do need to wear a swimming cap if your hair is longer than 4 inches.  

     Q: Can I use my gym shorts in the swimming pool?

    A: Unfortunately no; for sanitary reasons we only allow swimming trunks with lining.

     

     Q: Do you provide towels?

    A: No; we require all our patrons to bring their own towels.  

     Q: Why do I need to take a shower before getting in the pool?

    A: This is required by the Board of Health of the City of New York; beside hygiene issues, perspiration, lotions, or any other substance introduced into the pool water by the swimmers will combine with the chlorine and result in an unpleasant gas called chloramine that stings the eyes and smells bad. 

     

     Q: Can I bring my friends to swim?
    A: Yes, we are proud to be a truly Community College and we are open for everybody; however if they are not currently LAGCC full time students they have to pay the admission fee.
     Q: Can I bring my baby to swim with me?

    A: Yes, but the babies and toddlers must wear a waterproof diaper and/or be potty trained. 

     

     Q: What is the water temperature in the pool?
    A: We usually maintain the pool water at 79-80 degrees from May to September and 81-82 degrees from October to April.
