Aquatic Center opening Saturday

The Tracy Aquatic Center is scheduled to open Saturday, May 30, and close Sunday, August 22 this summer.

The first session of swimming lessons will begin June 15-26, with subsequent lessons slated for July 6-17, and July 27-August 7.

Open swimming hours will be 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 1 to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.  An adult swimming period will be offered weekdays from 6:30 to 9 a.m., with $2 admission.

Janis Landa returns as pool manager, with Lisa Schaar and Shannon Benson serving as assistants.

The lifeguard staff will include Mac Tiegs, Karly Mayer, Leah Nelson, Maddy Caron, Svea Landa, Lexi Nordsiden, Lexi Tauer, Destiny Carlson, Emily Munson, and Jessica Mayer.

Finding adequate numbers of lifeguards to hire for the summer was a challenge, Landa said.  As a result, there will likely be occasions when there won’t be enough lifeguards to run the pool’s two large slides, she said.

Another change planned is that the concession stand won’t be open.  Instead, the pool will have vending machines for concession sales.  Landa said that concession stand sales weren’t covering the cost of having someone running the concession area.
