Pima County pools open up

Posted: Updated:

Are you hot and ready to cool down?

Then, it’s that time of year, when Pima County’s 9 public swimming pools will be opening up. They open Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 27).

If pool safety is your concern, then check out the swimming lessons for children as young as six months

The Novice Summer Swim Team is also offered at all Pima County pools, except for the Picture Rocks pool. The fee is $20 for the whole summer, including all practices and meets. Registration for the Novice Summer Swim Team is open and can be found here. Registration continues until June 18, or until the team at a specific pool reaches capacity.

The first swim practice is May 30. Swim meets are on Saturday mornings or nights during June and July beginning on June 10. Meets will continue through the Championship meet on July 22.

You can also participate in the American Red Cross Junior Lifeguard program. It’s  designed to prepare tweens and teens between the ages of 11 and 15 to become future lifeguards. This program does not certify participants in first aid, CPR or AED (automated external defibrillation), nor certify as a lifeguard, but will introduce the participants to skills needed for entry to the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course.

The program runs from June 5-29th, at different times, depending on the pool where the student completes training. The fee is $30 for the entire program and includes a Pima County Junior Lifeguard T-shirt for participants who successfully complete the program. Registration is currently open and can be completed online. Just click here.

The schedule for swimming lessons, information on pool admission fees, pool hours, locations and phone numbers, as well as information on the Junior Lifeguard program, can be found here. For additional swim team information, call 520-724-5189. 

All pools will be open through Labor Day, Sept. 4, 2017.
