Welcome to Gresham High School Aquatics!

  •                  The following is a presentation of our summer programs being held at both Gresham and Barlow Swim Pools.

    An important note about our pools this summer!

    The district is currently completing some much-needed repairs.  Right now, Gresham Pool is closed for repairs, so all activities are being held at Barlow Swim Pool.  Once Gresham reopens, Barlow will close for those same repairs and all activites will move to Gresham Pool.  When you register for lessons (group and private), you agree to attend those classes at whichever pool is hosting the lessons.  The location could also change mid-session.  We will communicate all location changes quickly and with as much notice as possible.  For now, assume the lessons will kick off at Barlow Pool, unless you hear from us otherwise!  Our goal is to have the repairs completed as soon as possible and have both pools open and fully operating.

    Please note the following pool policies:

    • Children 8 years old and younger MUST be accompanied by an adult in the water at all times. 
    • All children must be toilet trained in order to swim.
    • Non-swimmers or those wearing lifejackets, an adult must be in the water within arms reach at all times. 
    • Barlow Pool does not provide lifejackets. 
    • Lifeguards commonly ask people to do a short swim test prior to going into deep water.  If the participant cannot complete the swim test to the level that the lifeguard feels is successful, then they will be asked to stay in the shallow area.  We will always err on the side of safety.
    • We do not take credit cards, debit cards, apple pay or venmo.  We ONLY accept cash or check.
    • Food is not allowed on deck.
    • Please keep street shoes off pool deck.
    • Glass containers are not allowed in pool faciltiy.
    • No long breath holding or prolonged repetitive breath holding, it's for your own safety!


    Summer Swim Lessons - Group Lessons

    Welcome to our summer swim lessons.  These are presented by Sam Barlow Pool and Gresham Pool.  Our lessons are part of the Learn-to-Swim program of the American Red Cross.  If you haven't taken ARC lessons, please see the level descriptions to help with proper placement.

    Also, make sure to read our important information on the front page regarding the locations of lessons this summer.  We can't wait to have both our pools open, but in the meantime, we will be operating lessons at one pool for a while.  Location changes are very likely.
