Pool Hours and Memberships

As an employee of Saint Leo, you and your immediate family have the benefit of a free membership to the pool. 

The Saint Leo Pool will open for the summer on Monday, May 15, through Saturday, August 12.  The hours will be 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, weather permitting. 

Individual employees just need to show their Saint Leo ID cards at the front desk to use the pool. 

If you need a family membership, please complete an online membership form.  A family membership is considered two adults and up to four dependent children, 18 years or younger, all of whom live in your household.  You have the option to add additional members for $15 per person.  Once your membership application has been received and approved, membership cards will be created for your family. Family members must present their membership cards each time they use the pool, while Saint Leo employees will show their Saint Leo ID cards. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times while at the pool.

Swim Lessons

The Saint Leo Lion’s Swim School will be offering swimming lessons throughout the summer of 2017. Group swim lessons will be offered to children ranging in age and ability. An advanced swimming training lesson will also be offered to children looking to improve cardiovascular endurance and technique.
