Aquatic Special Events


The Aquatic Center is temporarily closed. Due to the severe restrictions placed on opening the pool and the limitations faced, the decision was made to utilize this time to conduct previously planned capital improvement pool renovation projects in order to avoid long term closures in the future.

The Aquatic Center is now hosting special events ranging from indoor triathlon to the ultra competitive cardboard boat race.

By clicking on the tabs below you will find all the information needed for each particular event. If you have any additional questions you may contact the Aquatic Specialist at 734/394-5467.
