online Swim Reservation information

Attention all lap swimmers and independent water exercise patrons! Below you will find the link to create an account through our online reservation system. Please keep in mind that you will not be able to reserve a spot until 24 hours before any given session. See below for helpful tips:

  • Please pay attention to what you are signing up for. All of the sessions are grouped together by days, times and activities. Make sure you are signing up for not only the time you would like to come but also the activity you plan to do (i.e. lap swim, deep water exercise or water walking.)

  • You are limited to one activity session per day. (Admin reserves the right to cancel a reservation if someone has booked two or more sessions.)

  • Be sure to click confirm after you’ve booked! If you do not click the confirm button it will not save your spot.

  • Note that unless you have a current membership or punch card, you must pay the daily attendance fee upon arrival. ($3.50 for patrons 55+ and $5.00 for patrons 18-54 years of age) Credit cards are highly encouraged.

  • Every patron will need to make his/her own account. Joint accounts are not available.

  • Due to modified hours, spots are limited. If you are unable to keep your reservation, please be courteous and cancel so someone else may use that time slot.

Using a reservation system is new to all of us; we appreciate your patience and understanding while we work out all the kinks within the first few weeks. We cannot wait to see all of our wonderful members and patrons again! We know you’ll have a swimmingly good time!

​important user tips, information and reminders (7/28/20 update)

  • Reservations can be made up to 24 hours in advance.  
  •  Our staff do not have early access to the reservation schedule! Please do not ask us to reserve a swim slot before the window opens, or when you are checking in, to reserve for the following day.  We cannot guarantee that we will be able to secure a spot. Though happy to assist those without internet access, we ask that you make your own reservations if possible.
  • Your swim reservation is for any lane within the activity type selected. Specific lanes within that activity are on a first come-first served basis and cannot be individually reserved.  Make your online selection based on your planned activity type (if a hybrid water walker/lap swimmer, you may choose either, but be aware that some lap lanes will be too deep for walking). Please do not ask others to move.
  • There are a certain number of click-throughs required to make a reservation. You will see "Booking Confirmed" once you complete all the steps. You can double-check by clicking on to your profile (upper right-hand corner of the website) and looking at "My Schedule". You should also receive a confirmation email.  
  • If you are unable to keep your reservation, please be courteous and cancel so that someone else may use that time slot. To cancel a reservation: Click on your profile (upper right-hand corner of the website) and select the upcoming registration that you wish to cancel. Click on "Details" and scroll to the bottom where you click on "Cancel Booking". 
  • Please use face covering when not in the water. A towel can be used to cover your face before and after rinsing if you wish to avoid getting your mask wet.
  • The locker rooms are open and available for changing and toilet access (no showers or lockers). We ask that you clear the facility within 5 minutes of your session's end. The new schedule provides only 15 minutes between swims, so our staff must move in quickly behind you to clean and sanitize before the next group enters.
We will continue to monitor facility use and consider schedule adjustments as needed. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we do our best to safely navigate the Covid-19 challenges ahead.


The Maynard Aquatic Center is a year-round facility, featuring a large 286,000 gallon, multi-purpose heated pool, complete with a large recreational area, competition lap lanes and a low diving board. A walk-in ramp provides easy pool access, and a Frog slide offers hours of kiddie fun. During the summer season, the side panels enclosing the pool area are removed, and the pool converts to an outdoor facility with a roof to shield swimmers from the sun.
