AQUATICS

We offer something for everyone, from child and adult lessons and programs, to regular lap swim workouts, to leisurely swimming and play time for the whole family.

TROUT CREEK RECREATION CENTER POOLS

Trout Creek Recreation Center is home to multiple pools and Tahoe Donner’s Aquatics programs. The Lap Pool is open year-round. The Recreation Pool is one of Tahoe Donner’s most popular summer amenities, featuring poolside food and drinks, a kiddie pool and certified lifeguards. The Rec Center also offers water fitness classes and the Tiger Sharks swim team and water safety instruction, so suit up and dive in!

All reservation sales are final. No refunds, reservation changes, or cancellations, including due to weather. Please plan ahead when making a pool reservation. We want as many members and their guests as possible to enjoy the pools. Repeated no-shows may result in loss of access.

Kiddie Pool
The kiddie pool is a safe place for young kids to get their first exposure to swimming. Parents must be within arm’s reach of their children, and lifeguards are stationed nearby.

Unsupervised Minors (Swim Sticker Program)
Children ages 9 and under should be supervised at all times at Trout Creek Pools. Children ages 9-13 may receive a special wristband allowing unsupervised use of the Rec Pool after they pass a swim test administered by a certified lifeguard and parents complete a swim waiver. These privileges will be revoked and the parent/guardian notified if any behavioral problems occur.

Why are reservations required at the Trout Creek Rec Pool and Northwoods Pool?
Due to recent Town of Truckee adjustments limiting street parking near the marina, we are anticipating many more members will be excited to use the pools this summer and a reservation system is being utilized to help manage capacities and ensure a good member experience. The reservation system is not in place for COVID-19 mitigations. Based on feedback from the membership last summer, reservation times will be modified slightly, and the limit on the number of spaces available to reserve will be much higher as well. Additionally, from 5-7PM daily the Trout Creek Rec Pool is available first-come, first-served.
