The Kroc Center Natatorium has the best aquatics programs in Chicago you could imagine. Located on the Southside of Chicago, we have programs that feature classes for children, youth, adults, seniors and families. We’re one of the only places in Chicago that has multiple pools ranging from a competition pool, children’s pool, a vortex pool, water playground and two large slides for older kids.

Our classes are targeted for all ages and with multiple schedules available. Some of our most popular classes include: Aqua fit, Aqua Therapy, Parent-Tot Swim, Youth Learn-to-Swim, USA Sanctioned Swim Club, U.S. Masters Sanctioned Swim Club, Diving Club, and Adult Learn-to-Swim. We also have the American Red Cross Lifeguard and Jr. Lifeguard Training on site.
