Pool Schedule

POOL CLOSINGS: The schedule listed below is subject to change. Check the GAC Facebook page for weather or unexpected closings and schedule changes before heading to the pool. The pool does not open when the air temperature is below 68 degrees.


Pool attendance is by membership only for summer 2021. After purchasing a membership online, you will be able to register online for open swim and lap swim sessions throughout the summer through your Active account. Booking scheduled days/times online for all members is required in order to attend the pool. Everyone must check in with Goodman Aquatic Center staff at the admission window upon arrival for each lap or open swim session to confirm their name is on the list.
See below the 2021 Schedule for more registration and schedule details.
See Membership Fees & Registration >


If you will not be attending an open or lap swim session, please email the pool or call (608) 848-1322 and leave a voicemail message with the date, time, and members' names who are signed up that you are canceling. We will then either cancel your session online or document on our paper list that you have canceled.

Not Open for Labor Day




We encourage members to come in suits, ready to swim. Minimizing the use of locker rooms for changing will help with entrance and exit flow, and maximize your time at the pool. There are a lot of things that are different for summer 2021. Before visiting the pool, read the updated Policies & General Information >


Lap Swim is open to all members 18 years and older.


150 people will be permitted in the pool during open swim for each time block.
12 people will be permitted in the pool during lap swim for each time block.


There will be 1/2 hour scheduled breaks in between each swim session for cleaning.


Safety breaks will happen on an as-needed basis for the wellbeing and safety of the lifeguards. Up to fifteen minutes, no more than once per hour.


The pool will clear at the ending time of the last scheduled swim session.


The pool may be closed due to inclement weather, low attendance, or other unforeseen reason. Please call (608) 848-1322 for changes in the published schedule. You may also check the GAC Facebook page for schedule updates.
