Centennial Family Aquatics Center Programming Update


Centennial Family Aquatics Center, in accordance with Illinois Department of Public Health, Center for Disease Control, and USA Swimming guidelines, is pleased to begin offering Diving lessons on June 22, Adult Lap Swim on June 24 and Swim lessons on July 6.

Previously scheduled Diving classes are still running as scheduled. Patrons who had previously registered for Diving classes will remain registered and do not need to take any action confirming their participation. If a registrant wishes to withdraw and receive a household credit refund, please call our main office at 847/256-6100, or email info@wilpark.org.

Adult Lap Swim will be available to resident and non-resident patrons age 16 and up. Pre-registration will be required and can be made up to 7 days in advance using our online system (more details will be available shortly). Registration will be a pay-as-you-go system: Residents pay $16 and non-residents $26 for each hour time slot. Additional details and the Adult Lap Swim schedule can be found at http://wilmettepark.org/pool-schedules. 

All previously scheduled Learn to Swim classes are being canceled, and all registered participants will be automatically issued a household credit refund. The new schedule of Learn to Swim classes can be found online at http://wilmettepark.org/swimming-lessons. Resident registration starts June 22 at 9 a.m. and Non-Resident registration starts June 29 at 9 a.m.

All current pool season passes are being canceled and refunded to original form of payment.

We will continuously evaluate the situation and inform the community of any decisions made. We recognize the seriousness of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our community. We urge all residents to follow the Center for Disease Control’s tips by staying home if sick; avoiding close contact with people who are sick; covering coughs and sneezes; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; and washing hands with soap and water.
