Aquatics

Regardless of your ability level, our aquatics facilities are fun for the whole family.

Pelican Athletic Club has an extensive aquatics program with two large junior Olympic sized pools, a small wading pool, and a splash pad.  The pools are in the midst of a beautiful pool deck with easy access to locker rooms, PAC Cafe’, fitness floor, and tennis areas. PAC’s pools are aerated in the summer and heated in the winter, allowing the use of the pools year-round.  You can enjoy the cleanest, clearest, best-kept pools on the Northshore at PAC.

PAC offers recreational and laps swimming, along with various free aquatic exercise classes. Are you looking for more? We have many water-based programs to fit all your aquatics needs from lessons to technique, endurance, and competition.

Our swim team is nationally recognized for many of its achievements. You will find more information under our competitive swim tab.

Lifeguard Coverage

The safety of our members and guests is paramount to our management team.

A parent or guardian must supervise children under the age of 10 at all times.

Children under the age of 14 must be supervised by a Parent/Guardian while there is no lifeguard on duty.

Swim at your own risk while there is no lifeguard on duty.
