Aquatic Center

Purpose

Welcome to the Augusta pool. Our purpose is to provide an aquatic facility that offers a safe and enjoyable, learning and recreational environment for students and community members.

Swimming is a great way to reach health and fitness goals. This low-impact activity reduces body fat while increasing flexibility, stamina and muscle tone. The increased resistance that water provides leads to a more efficient workout than on land. Whether you want to get an aerobic workout or tone and build muscles, swimming utilizes virtually every muscle in the body.
