*All activities are subject to change per Governor’s orders, CDC guidelines, and the recommendations of local Health Departments. It’s best to signup for these activities now and receive a refund if they are canceled, rather than waiting for full clearance and risk being left off of a team!!!

Anyone that signed up for Spring Knothole Baseball or Girls Softball will be entitled to a full refund, or a partial refund for Winter Swim Lessons ($10). You may also apply that money towards another activity, even for something into the Spring of 2021.

The Aquatic Center will open for the season on Friday, June 5th! 

Hours for this season will be weekdays Noon – 8pm, and weekends/holidays 11am – 6pm. Season passes will be available for purchase this season for RESIDENTS ONLY, with pass prices remaining the same as 2019 (please see information below for pricing & more information).  Admission for non-residents will be permitted through Daily Admission only, and admission into the Aquatic Center will be determined on a day-to-day basis based on attendance. A few new guidelines to keep in mind this season:

• Social distancing will be enforced by Pool staff both on the deck and in the water, and hard surfaces will be routinely cleaned and disinfected by Pool staff.

• Aquatic Center attendance will be limited by the Manager on duty – we don’t have an exact number, but the Manager is permitted to restrict entrance based on attendance on a day-by-day basis.

• No chairs will be provided at this time – you must bring your own chair/lounge chair/towel.

• Sports equipment will not be provided by pool staff – you must bring your own basketballs, whiffle balls & bats, and any other equipment for use in the Pavilion.

• Space for play will be limited in the Pavilion to provide more space for pool attendees to spread apart.

• Concession stand will be in operation with a more limited menu than years past, and water fountains in the pool area will be disabled

• Restrooms will be available, but with half of the units being operational.

• Lockers and showers will not be available this season.

*All of these new guidelines are up for review and revisions at any time, per CDC and Hamilton County Health Department requirements.

GYM/WEIGHTROOM – due to flooding, the weight room will remain closed until further notice. We will provide more information on this as soon as possible.

Each class will be capped at 12 attendees plus instructor, with specific workout areas clearly marked and distanced from other attendees. Please bring your own towel and water bottle, as towels and water fountains will not be available. The studio will be cleaned and disinfected prior to all fitness classes, and classes will be spaced apart a minimum of one (1) hour to avoid overlap in attendees arriving/leaving each class.
