The holiday season is upon us, and with it, the end of fall programming at the Mission Valley Aquatic Center.

Winter classes will begin on Jan. 6, but first, the pool will be closed for several days in December in order to accommodate a number of facility improvement projects that have been waiting in the wing.

On Friday Dec. 6, the pool is closed so that trench drains can be installed in the locker rooms. This will help to minimize standing water and allow for easier cleanup and regular maintenance.

From Friday, Dec. 13 through Christmas Day, the pool is closed for warranty lighting issues, handicap door installation and locker room floor renovations/resurfacing. This new surface will be brighter and easier to clean than the current one. Also during this time, we will install a state-of-the-art scoreboard and timing system, which will allow the aquatic center to host USA Swimming meets, masters swim meets and maybe one day, the high school state championship event.

Wednesday, Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), the pool will close early, at 4 p.m., and all classes are cancelled for the day. The pool is closed Thanksgiving Day and open on Friday, Nov. 29 (Black Friday), but only from Noon to 4 p.m.

Morning Aqua Therapy classes are cancelled on Thursday, Dec. 26, but the pool is open normal business hours from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Tuesday, Dec. 31 (New Year’s Eve), the pool will again close at 4 p.m., and all morning and evening classes are cancelled.

The pool is closed on New Year’s Day, but will reopen on Jan. 2 with limited programming. On Monday, Jan. 6, the new winter schedule of water aerobics classes and swim lessons will begin. Look for new programs to take off, like Water Polo Wednesdays and Family Fun Fridays. Are you an adult who’d like to learn to swim? Beginning adult swim lessons are available.
