The Aquatics Department is proud to offer space for kids, teens, and adults to grow, learn, and find community both in and out of the water. Learn what it feels like to meet goals, build confidence, and achieve greatness by participating in our swim programs.

We offer a variety of programs, including adult swimming lessons, water fitness classes, open swim, family swim, and more. In addition, we offer swim time specifically for people with disabilities, and a ladies’ pool night. We also provide opportunities for lifeguard training, a CPR course, and American Red Cross WSI course certification.

During the summer, you can participate in our programs at the RTH Swimming Pool in Mission Park, and during cooler seasons, you can use the pool at the Huntington Avenue YMCA as part of our partnership with them.

Please note: All participants in RTH fitness programs and users of RTH sports facilities are required to have a signed registration form and emergency contact on file with us.
