Yes, we’re open! Thank you for your patience as we work through many new COVID-19 safety procedures for the Aquatic Center. Although we don’t have all the answers yet, our HCAC team has been diligently working with the guidelines set by 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.
We’re open! At this time we are able to offer Lap Swim, Water Walking and the Fitness Room. Due to State of Michigan restrictions we are not currently able to offer Family Splash, Preschool Splash, or our Spa.
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 reopen the pool and gym areas to 25% capacity. For lap swim, we will be limiting access to 1 swimmer per lane with a 45-minute time limit (if others are waiting for a lane). The fitness room is limited to 10 visitors at a time. There will be designated HCAC “member only” lap lanes available for HCAC members only. All other 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.
Yes. Masks are required in all dry land areas of the Aquatic Center, including the fitness room and the locker rooms. This is a State mandate and we are not able to make exceptions at this time. Masks should be worn until you are ready to enter the water, and are not allowed to be worn in the water due to safety concerns.
Locker rooms and other common areas present a higher risk of COVID-19 transmission due to high touch areas and groups of people in close proximity. Our locker rooms are open for changingand showers but we ask that you bring our items to the pool deck or the fitness room with you.
We are currently offering lap swim, water walking, and fitness room use. All of these activities are offered during limited times for limited numbers of people. Please review our schedule here.
Our Splash Zone, Therapy Pool and Spa remain closed. At this time the State of Michigan has also banned all organized sports activities and fitness group classes. Due to this direction, all swimming lesson, team practices, and fitness classes are cancelled through Dec. 8.
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.
