Santa Clarita is well known for its many respected high schools and community swim teams that are located across our valley as well as our infamous aquatic center. Swimming, water aerobics, and water-based sports are some of the many aquatic activities offered in our town. 

There is no better way to stay cool and beat the Southern California heat than swimming in a pool during the hot summers here. Nearly every housing area in Santa Clarita has its very own swim team and competes with other teams across the valley. 

What is so great about swimming in Santa Clarita is that the sky's the limit and your options are endless in which you can swim anywhere in your own leisure time or competitively, depending on your personal preference and age range. 

We at the Paseo Club are known for our large and involved swim community and feel that we are credible and knowledgeable on the sport. In this article, we will give you an insight into the many places you can partake in swimming in our valley. 


  1. Canyons Aquatic Club

If you are an individual with children who are looking to enroll them in a more competitive swim atmosphere, then Canyons Aquatic Club may be the right fit for them. 

As stated on their website: 

“Canyons Aquatic Club is based out of College Of The Canyons. We train at six pool locations. We are proud to train swimmers from the novice level to Olympian and treat each of our athletes with the same belief that each has unlimited potential. 

No matter if you're a competitive swimmer or just looking to get in shape, 4 years olds to 55+, Canyons has a lane for you.” 

Canyons Aquatic Club offers various swimming opportunities for many ages so seize the day and get your swim on. 

  1. Aquatic Center

Another well-known location for swimming in the Santa Clarita Valley is the local Aquatic Center. This is such a great environment that helps to entertain the entire family. It is equipped with a water park, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, diving boards, and much more. The Aquatic Center is a great place to exercise and relax all in one.  

Many of the swimming competitions between the high schools throughout the valley are held here. The Aquatic Center always has lifeguards on duty to ensure the safety of all swimmers in the pools. 

In addition, the aquatic center hosts various swimming events throughout the year. During the summer their water park is open to the public in which they charge you a low-cost fee to enjoy their amenities. They also have their dive-in movie nights, where you can swim and watch movies on a floating raft in the pool. What a great way to have fun!!! 


  1. Junior LifeGuards 

If you have a child or teenager interested in swimming that may also want to become part of a team or a structured group, then they may want to consider joining junior lifeguards. The Junior lifeguard program helps to aid those who participate in it in how to become a lifeguard. 

Throughout this program, they go through extensive training and learn CPR and various life-saving techniques.

This is a highly respected program in our valley that has been running for many years now. Junior lifeguards are usually held at our very own Castaic Lake and if you would like more information on this amazing program then please check out the Junior Lifeguard website. 


  1. Gyms with pools

If you are someone looking for the best of both worlds then maybe consider joining a gym that has a pool. This gives you the ability to work out with the luxury of having a pool to swim in as well. 

Gyms are a great atmosphere to promote self-motivation if you are looking for that. You can also have friends join you as well with guest passes so you can work out or swim together. Some of the well-known gyms with pools in our valley are Gold’s Gym and various LA Fitness’. So if you think joining a gym is the best bet for you then we highly recommend joining one today.
