Dive in This Saturday
Friday, May 24, 2024


This week’s snow showers haven’t exactly been conducive to dreams about lying by the pool.

But the Blaine County Recreation District’s outdoor Aquatic Center opens for the season on Saturday, May 25. Limited pre-season pool hours begin Saturday, May 25, and regular summer hours start Saturday, June 8.

Discounted season passes are available until Monday, May 27. Preseason pricing is $199 for a family of four (2 adults + 2 children), $102 for adults, $84 for children (17 and younger), and $84 for seniors (62 and older). Season passes include entry to open swim and lap swim all summer.

The Aquatic Center offers a 25-yard, 6-lane pool, and a zero-depth leisure pool. Swim lessons, youth swim team, lap swim, aquarobics classes and recreational open swim hours are offered throughout the season. Registration for BCRD’s aquatics programs, including Youth Swim Lessons and Dolphin Swim team, is open now.

Youth Swim Lessons offers group lessons for children 3 to 12 years old in two-week sessions from June 10 to Aug. 15. The skill-based, age-appropriate group lessons consist of 30- minute classes Monday through Thursday each week for $50 a session.

Dolphins Swim Team is for children aged 5 to 18 who can swim 50 yards and includes participation in Sagebrush Swim League meets. Dolphins Swim Team registration is $95 for children 10 and under and $142 for children 11 and over.
