The city provides opportunities for lessons, fitness classes, swim teams, certifications, rental opportunities for parties and plenty of time for fun in the pool.
Northglenn Recreation Center Pool
The Northglenn Recreation Center is open year-round, complete with swimming lanes and a diving board. Entry into the recreation center provides access to the pool.
The pool also hosts drop-in fitness classes.
Kiwanis Pool, an outside facility, is open roughly between Memorial Day and Labor Day every year.
Lessons and programs are also available in the morning and evening.
The City of Northglenn has two swim teams: the Snappers and Fusion. The Snappers is a recreation swimming program offered to youth ages 6 to 18 years old with limited competitive swimming experience, although they must have basic knowledge of swimming freestyle, the backstroke and breaststroke. The Fusion is a competitive swim team with more advanced swimming prowess, affiliated with USA Swimming.
The city offers a number of classes for any age or experience, from a baby's first time in the water to strong-swimming adults. Private lessons are also available.
A schedule and registration opportunity for all of the city's aquatics classes and programs can be accessed by going to the city's RecTrac online recreation registration system.
- Learn to Swim Like a Mermaid: Each 45-minute class will focus on safety and swimming techniques with your very own mermaid tail. Each student will receive their tail on the first day of class and it is yours to keep! Due to the sizing of each tail, there will be no refunds given after the registration deadline. Sorry, no exceptions.
- Mermaid Fitness Class: Participants receive monofins, which are like regular swimming fins – except both feet go into a single large fin. Thus, when you swim with them on, your movement is like a mermaid. The warm water provides a natural resistance, but the class is easy on the joints. By the end of each session, you’ll have a good, full-body workout. You’ll especially feel it in the core, but also the legs and arms. For people ages 18 and over.
