Aquatic Complex

The Vestavia Hills Aquatic Complex features a competition pool and a family-style leisure pool, both of which are closely monitored by trained lifeguards. The family-style leisure pool features a zero-step entry, interactive water features and a swirling vortex offered specifically to entertain our youngest swimmers. The competition pool is designed for intermediate to advanced swimmers and offers a 12’ diving well, four dedicated lap lanes and an open swim area. Also within the pool area are lounge chairs for tanning or relaxing in a shady areas, restrooms/locker rooms and a concessions area with a dedicated, covered dining space.

Swim Lessons 

Swimming lessons teach children self-confidence, encourage physical fitness and cut the risk of drowning. We are offering a variety of swim lessons at the Vestavia Hills Aquatic Complex in June for first time swimmers to experienced swimmers who need help working on their stroke!

Swim Lessons will take place on June 5-15, June 19-29, July 10-20, and July 24-Aug 3. Cost is $120 per 8 day session. Classes will be held Monday – Thursday, with Friday as a make-up day if there is bad weather, and they will be 30 minutes starting at 8am.

Beginner Swim Lessons – This is a beginner swim class or level 1 and intro to swimming. This is for children who cannot put their faces in the water or who cannot float.

Intermediate Swim Lessons – This swim class is for children between the ages of 5-11 who know how to put their face in the water and can float. These children can have some forward progress in the water with no help from someone or a floatation device.

Advanced Swim Lessons – This level of lessons is for an advanced swimmer who can swim across the pool but needs help refining their stroke and learning new strokes.
