Pool Hours

Dear SJC Pool Patrons,

Thank you for being patient as we navigate our COVID-19 reopening process. Currently the pool is closed, but we have been working diligently with our Pandemic Response Team to open safely. Our plan to start our reopening has been approved. We will be opening on September 8th to SJC Students, Staff, Faculty, and Alumni. Access by the public and outside group rentals will be pushed back until we have been given clearance from the SJC leadership.

To signup for a time slot you can go to https://www.picktime.com/alfondcenter. Please read the welcome message carefully for our COVID- 19 use guidelines.

Aqua Fitness

Our instructors guide participants through aerobic movements that target the entire body by using the natural resistance of water. Participants work as hard as they feel comfortable, and may choose to work on range of motion and flexibility instead of cardio and strength by performing alternative movements suggested by the instructor. Not only is it a great workout, but it’s a fun way to socialize with friends or to make new ones!

The morning Aqua Fitness classes take place in shallow water (4′-4.5′) and are great for all ability levels.
