Indoor Pool
Welcome to the indoor pool at the Family Activity Center! The pool has become extremely popular with our members and visitors.  The pool is used for lap swimming and open swim as well as our local high school swim teams from Shelby County and Collins High Schools, the Shelbyville Branch of Lakeside Swim Club and the summer fun league Shelbyville Stingrays.  The heated 8 lane 25 yard pool is perfect for exercising, swim lessons, or some watery fun during our long open swim hours.  The depths range from four feet to eleven feet at the diving end.  The pool area features a diving board and ample lounging chairs.

For the smaller children there is a children’s pool in the same area.  The depths here are two feet to three feet six inches.  Connected to this pool is a fiberglass Frog Slide!  Children enter the pool by sliding down the frog’s tongue.
