Welcome to those aged 55 and over who enjoy water exercise or lap swimming. For over 30 years we have been exercising, socializing, and encouraging each other as we stay fit and healthy.
We rent the pool at the Boys and Girls Club, 543 Center Street, Santa Cruz (map), on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. Our classes are led by a trained instructor and a certified lifeguard is always on duty. The 40×60 foot pool is heated between 84 to 86 degrees. Both the water exercise sessions and the lap swimming sessions are 40 minutes long.
Currently the exercise sessions have a short waiting list and the lap swim sessions have a long wait for openings.
POOL IS NOT OPEN ON STATE & FEDERAL HOLIDAYS. POOL IS CLOSED DURING COVID-19 UNTIL REOPENED BY AUTHORITIES.
