Since we opened in 1957, Del Norte has always taken pride in our swimming facilities and aquatic programs.
Del Norte features three pools. Our heated indoor pool and seasonal outdoor pool allow our members to enjoy water exercise throughout the year.
Aquatic Fitness Classes
Del Norte features one of the most comprehensive Aqua Fitness programs available in Sacramento. With over 20 classes available per week in our heated, indoor pool, there is a class to meet everyone’s needs and schedule. Low-impact water workouts combine cardiovascular exercises and strength training, with little risk of injury. Water provides 12 times more resistance than air resulting in movements being more challenging, requiring muscles to work harder, burning calories, and toning the muscles. Water classes are also safe. Our pool is only chest deep, so swimmers and non-swimmers alike can enjoy the classes.
Our dynamic group of instructors teach a variety of classes from traditional classes using noodles and handbars, to water walking and higher intensity classes with jumping and treading. We also offer a variety of specialty water class, such as Water in Motion and Aqua Rx. Water in Motion is a high energy, choreographed party in the water. While Aqua Rx is designed as a low intensity class focusing on stretching and strengthening for members who may have trouble with traditional exercise classes.
Dolphin Swim Team
For decades our swim team has provided thousands of kids with instruction, competition, teamwork, sportsmanship, and most of all, fun. Our team and parent board strive to make our team a positive experience for both kids and parents.
The Dolphins compete in the Northern California Swim League and have a rich history of success. Our team is open to boys and girls ages 5 to 18. Our swim season begins in April and continues through July every year. Our experienced coaching staff also teaches several clinics per year including Stroke and Turn and Fall Swim Clinics.
We offer private and semi-private swim lessons throughout the year. Availability of instructors and pool space varies by season. Lessons are coordinated between the instructor and member/guest. See below for more information.
Fall Swim Clinic
During the Fall, kids have another unique opportunity to further enhance their swimming skills and increase their physical fitness. Our fall Swim program allows kids to continue improving their swimming and compete in optional individual swim meets. Practice schedules vary and will be announced prior to the program.
Masters Swim Program
If you like to swim, Del Norte offers a swim program designed for adults 18 years and older. The Masters Swim is an organized swim class that is held Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 5am to 6am. The class is offered in the indoor pool during the winter and early spring months and then continues in the outdoor pool. The coach will bring an exciting workout plan to increase overall fitness as well as fine tune those swimming strokes. The class is designed for the beginner to the advanced or competitive swimmer. The class is offered free of charge for Del Norte members.
