Swimming Pool

New Pool for 2023!

A new pool is coming to Rock Valley in 2023! A big thanks to all who helped make this dream a reality. We can't wait for the new pool but this does mean our current pool will be closed for the summer of 2022. Stay tuned for more updates on what that means for lessons, lifeguard, etc. Read more about the new pool plans below.
