The staff of the Recreational Facility has been working diligently to prepare the facility, as well as formulate policies and procedures, for as safe a summer swimming experience as we can reasonably provide. You will notice changes in seating, sanitation and concessions to enhance social distancing and have readily available disinfectants for the facility, equipment, staff and patrons.
Utilizing guidance from the State of Kansas (the Ad Astra Plan), the CDC and from county and city officials, there is now a phased plan to open the Rockwood Pool.
We encourage you to come down to the pool that weekend, check out the pool, tour the facility and see the effort that has been made to make this a great summer for Rockwood.
Attached is a set of guidelines and timeframes to open the pool and related pool activities. Please take some time to review this information. Members have significant responsibilities in helping to make this summer experience fun and safe. Social distancing is required.
During the summer only, the pool manager can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 316.685.3231 (pool office). Applications for In and Out of Rockwood memberships, including membership levels, pricing, etc. are above.
Swim Team and swim lessons are scheduled to start early June. See the information and links below for specific information, including schedules and pricing. Children must be a pool member to participate in either event. For additional information, please contact Joe Hutchinson at 316.252.9192 or email@example.com.
Applications for 2021 lifeguard positions will be accepted next spring, with interviews scheduled for March.
Children between the ages of 5 and 18, who can swim the length of the pool are invited to join. Scheduled practices (by age group) begin June 2021 with possible area virtual competitions through the season. Click here for more information. The swim team application is here.
This year, Rockwood offers a new program to work one-on-one with any swimmer 6 years old or under or who has not swum competitively before during the second week of June. For more information, click here. These sessions are a great way for young or new swimmers who are a little unsure of how swim team is to get a chance to be more comfortable with a swimming practice before we have bigger groups.
Swim lessons and Swim Team are on!
From just learning to have fun in the pool to experienced swimmers ready to hone their competitive skills, Rockwood Pool has a full schedule of learning activities for the summer!
The setups are a little different, more precautions in place, but an awesome pool and a line up of great instructors are ready to start.
Whether your kids just want to splash around in the pool, want to start/improve swimming skills or want to kick it up a notch (or two) to compete, Rockwood Pool is the place to be this summer.
From Introduction to Water Skills to more advanced stroke work, Rockwood pool staff offer three sessions this summer, with the first session starting June 2021.
Five skill levels from just getting started to experienced, low student/instructor ratio, and reasonable fees will help give the kids a great fun experience.

The grassy park with playground equipment and basketball court are open year-round, although restricted during the pool season. A doggy bag dispenser is at the front of the park area - please help keep our park clean.
There is now a pickleball court (although slightly narrower than a standard court) in the park! During the summer months, rackets and balls are available at the pool office.
The sand volleyball courts provide for a friendly game or neighborhood tournament play. This fall the volleyball courts are open upon request. Please contact Larry Duntz in advance if you would like to use (the restriction is only for the protection of the courts/net from varmints and mischief). The nets will be put away for the winter later in the fall.
The Patio Party Room is available for rental during the summer months for a nominal fee. Please contact the Pool office for more information and to schedule.
