1. Prevent drowning by teaching children and adults how to swim.
AAC will provide learn-to-swim scholarship programs for those who may not be able to afford lessons. Learning to swim can save a life.
2. Promote fitness, especially for those who are limited on land.
There are few indoor facilities that offer the proper aquatic experience for people to get and stay strong in the water. AAC will have four pools for promoting fitness: a therapeutic pool 88 degrees warm, an instructional pool which is 86 degrees, a community/training/competition pool at 79 degrees, and a diving well of approximately 81-83 degrees.
3. Provide a center for competition.
AAC will be a regional destination where athletes of all ages – from developing 6-year-olds to masters swimmers and triathletes – can practice and compete. AAC will provide classes and learning opportunities for many sports that need water.
4. Provide a place for warm water aquatic therapy.
It is necessary to provide warm water for some aspects of aquatic exercise. AAC will have at least one therapeutic pool that will allow people to heal and exercise in a safe, aquatic environment. AAC has the ability to expand to three therapy pools.
The Adirondack Aquatic Center (AAC) is envisioned as a regional
indoor aquatic center for people of all ages and abilities.
Incorporated in 2014, the AAC is a not-for-profit recognized
by the IRS under Section 501(c)(3).
