Good news! (Sorta.) While many of us were looking forward to the much-anticipated facility-wide facelift, which required closing the pools for almost two weeks in December, plans have changed.

Instead of closing for two weeks, the Mission Valley Aquatic Center will only be closed for two days (Dec. 18 and 19).

So, if you were bummed when you heard about December’s closures, turn that frown upside down, and listen closely as we review the holiday schedule:

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

The pools will close for two days, Wednesday, Dec. 18 and Thursday, Dec. 19. This closure will accommodate workers taking care of warranty lighting issues and installing 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. Normal hours resume on Friday and through the weekend.

The aquatic center will close at 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 23 and remain closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Morning Aqua Therapy classes are cancelled on Thursday, Dec. 26, but the pools will be available for open swim during normal business hours from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

On Tuesday, Dec. 31 (New Year’s Eve), the facility will again close at 4 p.m., and all morning and evening classes are cancelled. The pools are closed on New Year’s Day, but will reopen 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. Call (406) 883-4567 for more information, or email
