FAC features two swimming pools for your fitness and leisure fun. Our six lane lap pool is covered and heated to 82 degrees in the winter to give local swimmers the ability to swim year round. The lap pool is used primarily for lap swimming, swim team practice, swim lessons, water fitness classes and swim conditioning and stroke clinics. If family leisure time is your pleasure, you will certainly have fun in our family leisure pool located across the deck complete with a fun fountain and two water slides.
The old-school, technically-probably-correct definition of a “lap” is two lengths of the pool: down and back. Linguistically this makes sense: when you “lap someone” you have swum two lengths of the pool to catch up to them. However, in practice, it is far more common for people to say “laps,” and mean “lengths.”
In our lap pool 66 lengths or 33 laps = 1 mile
