You can reserve a 1-hour time slot in 1 area per day, 1 week in advance.

We will not be accepting walk-in visits so please do not visit the Center unless you have a reservation.

Locker Room Amenities

Showers are available with the understanding that they will be used for the purpose of a quick rinse or wash. Capacity restrictions are still in place in the locker rooms so members must limit their shower time to ensure enough time to change and exit the building before the next reservation group arrives.

The following amenities remain unavailable and marked out of service: Towel service, hairdryers, water fountains, and swimsuit spinners.

Availability of lockers will be limited in order to ensure social distancing. Lockers that are not allowed to be in use will be closed off and marked out of service. Members are asked to wipe down their locker and changing stall, promptly change and exit the Center at the end of their reservation.
