The pool inside the Alf Sorensen Community Center is 25 yards in length and heated year round for your swimming enjoyment. If you like diving, we offer two one-meter diving boards. All of the swimming activities are supervised by American Red Cross certified lifeguards.

If you have a child, age 6 or younger, our 90 degree tot pool is the perfect place for an afternoon of fun in the water. Parents are required to accompany children in the tot pool area and are now allowed to watch them from the side, rather than be in the water with the child. Children under 7 may be allowed in the big pool without a parent if they can pass the designated swim test (across the width of the pool without stopping, using the crawl stroke). If they do not pass the test, they must be accompanied by an adult (18 yrs. and older) in the water.

Children 7 and older must swim in the big pool unless determined by the lifeguards that they are not tall enough to stand up in the shallow end and cannot pass the swim test.


Monday and Wednesday  ………… 7:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
Saturday …………………………………….1:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.
$3 per person all ages. $10/family  – up to 4 kids and 2 adults.

Parent and child swim for $7 in Alf Sorensen’s Tot Pool. Each additional child is $1. This is available Monday – Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Your child must be age 6 or younger. Parents must be in the pool with the child. The facility may be closed for special programs, so please call ahead.

Note: Private swim lessons may not be conducted in this facility except by immediate family members, and only in such a manner as not to interfere with public use of the pool. Lap swim times may not be used for any instruction.

The pool is closed on holidays.
