The MAC's aquatics program has been ranked as one of the nation's best, with:
- 25-meter, six-lane indoor lap pool
- Second indoor pool for water exercise classes, rehabilitation, children's swimming lessons and play; kept at 85 degrees
- 25-yard, six-lane outdoor competitive lap pool with starting block and a 12-foot depth at one end for lifesaving, scuba and other types of classes
- Outdoor leisure pool with a zero-grade entry on one side (gradually sloping down like a beach) for kids, recreational use, and swim lessons. This pool is kept at 85 degrees.
- Giant 200-foot-long water slide that empties into our outdoor leisure pool.
Both outdoor pools are seasonally enclosed in an air structure so they can be used year-round. For added summertime enjoyment, there are picnic tables, a food service area, sand volleyball courts and a generous sand play area for children adjacent to our outdoor pools.
From Tot to Water Fitness and the MACkerels Competitive Swim Team, the MAC offers a wide variety of quality aquatics programs for all of our members.
