Pool Operations Update #4

To our valued community members:


We are very excited to announce 2 additions to the services we are providing our members:

Warm Water pool will reopen Monday, Feb 1st

  • Reservations may be made for this pool starting January 25th.
  • The pool will be sectioned into 4 quadrants and members will be able to reserve a quadrant for up to 2 consecutive 50 Minute blocks.
  • The pool will only be set up for individual workouts. There is no rec/open or lap swimming permitted at this time.

Members aged 16 years or older may now reserve lap swim times in the main pool without a guardian in the building

  • Must provide a government issued ID that displays a photo, address, and name.

As the current metrics of COVID-19 have arrived at a place where restrictions have been allowed to start lifting, we are working to adjust to be able to provide these additional services as well as continue to safely operate for our members and staff. Below is a breakdown of the policies we are using to ensure that.


Members Only

  • We will continue to operate for members only by reservation.
    • Allows the most complete contact tracing as required by MDHHS
    • Allows for capacity limits to be met
  • We offer multiple membership lengths and categories.
    • City of Coldwater and Coldwater Township residents receive discounted rates due to partnerships with the BAC
      • We welcome any township or municipality to contact the BAC about creating a partnership to enjoy the facility.
  • Interested parties may call the pool Monday- Friday 7 AM-3 PM to get information on becoming a member.

Limited Locker room access

  • The large group locker rooms will remain closed as they are difficult to ensure social distancing within.
  • The 3 individual locker room areas will continue to be accessible to our members.
    • We encourage members to arrive in their suits if possible to make the most of their swim block time.

Main pool is still for lap swimming only to ensure social distancing.


Warm water pool will be for individual workouts only to ensure social distancing.


Masks MUST be worn until members enter the pool.


Lockers continue to be off limits to reduce contact points between households.


Minors under the age of 16 must have a guardian 18 years or older that they share a family membership with stay with them for the duration of their reservation.


Thank you for your continued support as we navigate these changing and trying times. We will continue to offer as much as we can while maintaining the safety as required by state, local, and district guidelines.
