Ballston Spa Aquatics Program
The Ballston Spa High School Pool is a six lane 25 yard facility with one meter diving boards. The pool hosts a variety of community events and activities including both the girls and boys varsity swim teams, the modified swim team, and the Ballston Spa Swordfish swim club.
During the school day, the pool is used by the elementary schools, middle school, and high school as a part of the district's physical education program. In addition to hosting school activities, and swim team programs, the pool is home to lap and community open swim.
The District offers public use of the swimming pool during early morning (6:00-7:00 am, Monday, Wednesday and Friday - during the school year) and evening lap swimming (Check Monthly Calendar for schedule). A Family and Open Swim time is held on Saturday afternoons from 12:30 – 2:30pm (during the school year). The aquatics program is also offering an Aqua Fitness class for adults on Monday and Wednesday evenings (an additional fee and pre-registration is required). Schedule changes are announced on the aquatics webpage and placed on the answering machine at the pool.
