Aquatics Program

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. 

Community Opportunities:

The District offers public use of the swimming pool during early morning and evening lap swimming. A family and open swim time is held on Saturday afternoons. Evening lap swim will resume starting February 5, 2024. Family/Open swim and morning lap swim TBA.
