Yes, we’re open! Thank you for your patience as we work through many new COVID-19 safety procedures for the Aquatic Center. Our HCAC team has been diligently working with the guidelines set by the Ottawa County Health Department, the State of Michigan and the CDC to create procedures for a safe and welcoming environment. The below answers are subject to change and we’ll continue to update them as we have more information.
Our current schedule is available here. You do not need to make an appointment for lap swim, the fitness room, or water walking. Please check the schedule before coming to the Aquatic Center.
State regulations allow us to open all areas of the pools and the fitness room at 50% capacity beginning on June 1st! All activities are currently on a first-come, first-served basis and you may have to wait for your activity.
Regular facility use rates apply. Membership allows use of the fitness room, water walking, and lap swim, at no additional charge. Non-members may pay a single visit use fee of $8.50 per person, per visit.
In the State of Michigan masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals. Masks are still required for those who are not fully vaccinated. HCAC will continue to follow this guidance until we receive additional information from our State and local health departments.
We are currently offering lap swim, water walking, spa, and fitness room use – all with 50% capacity restrictions as of June 1, 2021. All of these activities are offered during limited times for limited numbers of people. We will be opening for Preschool Splash beginning on June 7, and for Family Splash Time (all ages, open swim) on June 11.
Please review our schedule here.
If you have (or had) an active membership prior to the closure of HCAC, we will be honoring any time you have paid for but were unable to use because of the pandemic. For example, if you had three months left when we closed in March, those three months re-commenced beginning Sept 9, 2020. If you were provided with a credit towards a new membership, that credit is available for you to use now, and will expire on 6/30/2021.
