Aqua Zumba- Just Add Water And Shake

Splash your way into shape Zumba style with an invigorating low-impact aquatic exercise. Known as the Zumba® "pool party", the Aqua Zumba program gives new meaning to the idea of a refreshing workout. Integrating the Zumba philosophy with traditional aquatic fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba® blends it all together into workout that's cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.

Aqua Zumba has not been scheduled for Spring 2014.  Please check back for updates.


Family Swim (Thursday 5pm - 7pm, Sunday 12:30pm - 6:30pm)

Family Swim hours are designated to provide UAlbany students and its members and opportunity to recreate with their dependent children and/or spouse (significant other).

1. Family Swim is available to children and guest (at no additional charge) of Students, Faculty, Staff or Members who have purchased a minimum of a semester long membership.  Parents will need to complete the sign in form for their child/children or guest.  Only one sign in sheet needs to be filled out for each new child or guest for the entire semester.

2.  Each adult with membership access is able to bring 1 other adult guest over the age of 18 and no more than 3 children per adult present.  (i.e. 1 adult= 3 children max, 2 adults= 6 children max)

3. A general waiver form must be filled out for each guest and child accessing the facilities.

4. All children must be accompanied by an adult IN the pool at all times.  During Family Swim hours, a parent/adult must directly supervise children younger than 12 years of age.  One adult must be present for each child entering the pool.
