General Information

The Ithaca Swimming Club is a non-profit cooperative, a status which helps keep fees down and provides a high level of ownership among its members. The Club was started in 1968 and has been in operation each summer since.

As a cooperative, each member is asked to assist in a work party for a few hours at the beginning or end of the season to open, close, or otherwise help maintain the facility. For those who cannot participate, a small fee is assessed. Members also volunteer and serve as officers and committee chairs of the Club board.

In addition, many members and friends of the club have brought their talents and interests to the pool for the benefit of all. Past events include:
  • Tie-dye shirts 
  • Preschool activities 
  • Teen party 
  • Pizza party 
  • Ice cream social 
  • Family activities 
  • Craft projects 
These activities are safe and enjoyable ways to spend the summer with family and friends. We hope you will check us out!

Pool Facilities
  • 50’ x 75’ six-lane pool, 
  • 50’ x 40’ diving area 
  • 10’ x 15’ wading pool 
Both pools are heated and sanitized without the use of chlorine.

The lap section of the large pool slopes in depth from three-and-a-half to six feet. Two lanes are reserved for lap swimming at all times, but guards can designate more if needed. All six lanes are reserved for lap swim during designated lap swim hours. The diving area reaches twelve feet and contains a low diving board.

For the safety of children five years old and under, the shallow wading pool is separated from the main pool area by a fence.

Tennis, basketball and volleyball courts
All courts are available to ISC members while the pool is open. The tennis courts may also be used by members before and after hours and before and after the season, weather permitting.

Picnic Facilities
Picnic facilities include barbecue grills, picnic tables, grassy areas, and shaded sitting and eating areas. Snacks are available for purchase at the office. Members are welcome to bring food and drink from home or the local carry-out. Wooden play structure in enclosed area also available!

Pavilion Reservations
Members can reserve pavilions for birthday parties or other special events. There is a $25 fee for reserving a pavilion. To reserve a pavilion, please see the Pavilion Reservations page. **We are not renting pavilions during the coronavirus pandemic. They are available for use on a first-come, first-served basis by members**

Annual Fees are due by May 31, but new members are welcome to join at any time during the season. For more information, please view the application forms on forms page.

The Club welcomes members’ guests, but discourages inviting non-member local residents to use the facilities on a regular basis. Pool charges for members’ guests are $5.00 per person per day. **We are not allowing guests during the coronavirus pandemic**

Swim lessons are available to both members of the Club. For dates and schedules, please see the front desk or check out the swim lessons page.
