The BAC is excited to welcome back our community! And while the pool is the same, many of our procedures have changed due to COVID and your safety, both in and out of the pool, is our #1 priority.
This page has been created to share the policies and procedures currently in place. Due to these restrictions, our capacity is greatly reduced so we appreciate your patience and adherence to all of the guidelines below. As things continue to progress in an acceptable manner, the BAC will add in additional options and activities.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- Will BAC Staff be required to wear a mask at all times? As of August 30, 2021 everyone must wear a mask when inside the building UNLESS in the shower or in the pool.
- How long can I swim? The BAC Staff will not be timing each person but we respectfully ask that each swimmer uses a lane for a maximum of thirty (30) minutes.
- Will I have to share a lane? If you are with a family member or minor, you may share a lane. Otherwise this will be determined by the lifeguard on duty when appropriate.
- What if I have a lock on a locker? We are allowing those with previously used lockers to continue to use them but ask that, if possible, all personal items are taken home and locks removed. This will allow for a more thorough cleaning and disinfecting.
- What cleaning procedures are in place? The locker rooms and all touch points will be sanitized before opening and after closing in addition to the custodial staff cleaning the locker rooms, hallways, offices etc. daily.
- What is the status of my membership? The BAC will not be charging patrons until July 1, 2021. At that time whatever remaining ‘balance’ of time on your account from March 13, 2020 will be added from that date forward. No refunds or credits will be given.
- What about lessons, classes and other activities? We plan on offering these beginning Monday July 19, 2021.
- Are the water fountains working? While the drinking water portion of the fountains are disabled, you are welcome to fill your own water bottle.
