Current News

Students Return

The summer hours will come to an end on August 9 just before the start of the new school year. All hours, including holidays, are posted on the Hours page.

Clayton High School students return to class on August 12. Throughout the school year, students utilize the facility for physical education, athletic practice, and personal growth. As these programs occasionally require full access to various areas within The Center, please refer to the pool and gymnasium schedules for changes in availability. Parking during school days and some events may also be congested throughout the year. We will let you know in future alerts if any foreseen crowding should arise.

Pool Closures

The Competition Pool will be closed August 17-21 and the Leisure Pool will be closed August 24 – September 7 for annual cleaning. Center members can swim for free at Shaw Park Aquatic Center, The Heights and Maplewood Family Aquatic Center from August 17 through September 7. Present your membership card for admission during the times listed on the End of Season Schedule.
