Pool Schedule

I wanted to let you know that the East Petersburg pool has been taking the COVID protocols seriously. As a person that is a high risk, the one exercise that I can do safely is swimming. I was very nervous to return to the pool. I was pleasantly surprised that not only is their adequate signage; they are wearing masks and cleaning even more than is recommended by the C.D.C. I am also aware that other public pools are not abiding by safety protocols and I’m appreciative of the care and concern that has been demonstrated. Mindy has been paramount to the success of these protocols and exhibits strong leadership skills in a very divisive environment.

Thank you and your team for providing a safe environment for exercising,

Pamela Peters

We are happy to report that during the GREEN phase, we are able to open our INDOOR pool with restrictions and protocols in place. Our INDOOR pool will open on Friday, June 26th at 5:00 am. Aquatic GrpX in the INDOOR pool and at the East Petersburg OUTDOOR pool will resume on Monday, June 29th.


Following the July 1st mandate from the state of Pennsylvania, members must wear a face-covering in all common areas including the lobby, locker rooms, and hallways. We will assume that failure to wear a mask is due to an existing condition.
Masks are highly recommended in our fitness center, our indoor pool, the gym, and on our indoor tennis courts.
Social distancing on land and in the pool will be required.
During lap swimming, only two people per lane starting at opposite ends.
There will be no showers, lockers, sauna, or steam room available.
