POOL

*Pool Open: Memorial Day-Labor Day

Want to go to a pool that is relaxing, family oriented, clean and has a sense of community? Then Western is the pool for you and your family. 

A Western Pool member once told his kids they were going to the happiest place on earth—kids' response—"the Western Pool?!" Parents actually were taking the children to Disney but you get the idea of how the kids felt about Western!

 

Whether it is the free hotdogs on holidays, fun Friday game day, swim team, or just hanging out, Western provides a summer pool experience that is wonderful for all ages.

SWIM TEAM

The Western Athletic Club Swim Team, the Western Wahoos, is part of the Southern Ohio Swim League and competes against other swim clubs in the Cincinnati area. The Wahoos compete in a variety of strokes and styles, including breaststroke, backstroke, freestyle, and butterfly. The swim team is made up of boys and girls ages 5 to 18 and welcomes swimmers of all skill levels. This year the league has decided not to have the Relay Meet or Championships due to the difficulty of social distancing at large events.

  • All swim team participants must have a current Western Pool Membership.

  • Goggles and swim caps are recommended for both practices and competition.

  • Swim team suits are not required. Royal Blue or black suits.

  • Parent volunteers are required for swim meets-running meet and bake sale (proceeds for End of the Year Party)
