[ARCHIVED] New Swimming Program to Open at Amherst Regional Middle School Pool

New Page 1

Open and lap swimming will be offered at the Amherst Regional Middle School Pool this Summer from July 1 – August 26, 2011.  Amherst
Leisure Services and the Amherst Regional School District have collaborated to create a safe place in the center of town for the public to cool off and workout
this summer by opening the pool at Middle School.  Red Cross certified lifeguards hired by the Town will be on duty during all hours of operation.  The
War Memorial Pool will not open this summer due to structural issues that are currently being addressed.


In addition to the new swim program at the Middle School,
new time blocks for swim lessons have been added to the schedule at Mill River Pool.  Parents can now enroll their children in lessons during this new time
block (7- 7:25 pm) during Session 2 which starts on July 11th and Session 3 which starts on August 1st.  In addition, some of the class
minimums in all sessions have be adjusted to meet the demand for more swim lessons.


Hours of operation at the Amherst Regional Middle School
Pool will be:

            Open Swim     5-7 pm, Monday – Friday

            Lap Swim        7-8 pm, Monday – Friday

            Open Swim     1-6 pm, Saturday and Sunday


Middle School Pool Summer memberships will be priced at
very affordable rates:

            Family                         $99

            Individuals                  $69

            Seniors and Teens       $59


Daily admission rates will be the same as those at Mill
River Pool.  They range from $5 - $8 per day and are based on age and residency. 


For more
information and to register for swim lessons visit or call Amherst Leisure
Services at 413-259-3065.
