 Recreational Pool

Recreation Pool

The pool is host to exciting recreational swim opportunities with its water slide, a tot slide, lazy river, vortex and wading area with tumble buckets.  Recreational Swim times vary by day of the week and additional hours are available on days the School District of Clayton does not have classes. 

For those with fitness in mind, the pool also boasts a zero depth entry path, water walking, and two 25-yard lap lanes. With the warmer water temperature of 86 - 88 degrees, the leisure pool is the perfect place to swim for those who do not like the cooler water in the Competition Pool.

Hot Tub

Hot Tub

Our hot tub is kept at a soothing 102 - 104 degree water temperature. We limit use to patrons 14 years of age and older with a maximum capacity of 12.

Competition pool

Competition Pool

Our competitive pool is a favorite for lap swimmers with eight 25-yard lanes kept at a temperature of 80 - 82 degrees. Thirty-five laps (70 lengths) equal a full mile of swimming. The pool also has two diving boards available for use during scheduled times. 

The Competition Pool hosts programs including water exercise classes, diving lessons, SCUBA lessons, and lifeguard training classes as well as Clayton High School classes, swimming meets, water polo games, and diving meets conducted during the year.

UV Filter In conjunction with the Center’s top of the line pool filtration and chemical systems, each pool is equipped with an Ultraviolet (UV) Sanitation Unit.  UV units use light energy to disassociate chemical bonds of micro-organisms. This method allows us to to reduce the amount of chlorine in the water which virtually eliminates eye irritation, itching, and chloramines that cause the typical pool odor - all while still effectively killing all micro-organisms including those that are resistant to chlorine.
