  • VOLUNTEERING: We have have five sessions over the course of three days, so we will need ALL families to volunteer (even if your swimmer is not participating in the meet).     CLICK HERE to sign up ahead of time, and choose the job that works for your schedule.  All open slots will be assigned by the volunteer coordinators. Email volunteer@swiftaquatics.org if you have any questions.

Niles North Parking Reminder: The drive that most use to access the pool is now closed.  Please use the drive by the Main Entrance (closer to Old Orchard Rd) to drop your swimmers off at Door 12.  The West Lot (which most  park in) is now closed.  The closest access point to the Aquatics Center would be either in the lot by the Main Entrance or across Lawler Ave. in the Old Orchard lot.   Please plan accordingly when heading to the pool.

Swimmer Safety/Facility Notes:  

  • Niles North Aquatics Center Map (NNAC)  ||  Niles West Pool Map (NW)
  • NNAC-North = 6 Lane Pool, NNAC-South = 8 Lane Pool
  • If your swimmer is under the age of 12, we encourage you to walk your swimmer into the facility.  Each high school is incredibly busy after school with athletic programs, club activities, etc.  We want to make sure your swimmer can access each pool safely.
  • After changing for workout, please bring all clothes/personal items onto the pool deck - this is where it is safest.  We are not responsible for anything lost or stolen in the locker room.   In addition, please familiarize yourself our Locker Room Policy.
  • During practice sessions, we cannot have any parents on the pool deck.  Any questions or concerns can be addressed with the Coaching Staff after practices or communicated via email.
