Lee District RECenter – Aquatics
Lee District RECenter has an Olympic-sized heated indoor pool, two 1-meter and two 3-meter diving boards, spa, spectator seating, locker rooms, family changing room, saunas, and showers and an outdoor sun deck and grassed sunbathing area.
Fairfax County Park Authority RECenter pools have something for everybody! Our comprehensive programs promote safety, skill development, fitness, social interaction and fun.
Various user groups share pool space. Nationally ranked competitive teams for swimming, diving, synchronized swimming, and water polo rent space for practice and meets. FCPA and Fairfax County Public Schools share the commitment for hosting the high school swim and dive teams for practice and meets November through February.
The Park Authority strives to maintain a standard of at least three lap lanes available to the public whenever the pool is open. Please check the pool calendar for specific daily pool hours. The calendar will also indicate the rare instances that availability falls below the three lane standard. Shallow (3 1/2 ft.) play space is available every day.
Private Swim Lessons
No matter what your age, there are swim skills to learn and enjoy. Swimming is a wonderful fitness activity, enhancing cardiovascular fitness while increasing muscle strength and endurance. People tend to learn best in an environment that is positive and fun. FCPA aquatic instructors strive to offer students learning experiences that are both pleasurable and effective. Private swim instruction is available. Submit a Private Swim Lesson Request Form
On Saturdays and Sundays our diving boards are open from noon to closing based on lifeguard availability. All participants must pass an ability test—to swim 25 yards in deep water. A lifeguard supervises this test. Flotation devices may not be used for the swim test or on diving board.
Professionally trained lifeguards oversee all natatorium activities. We are proud to be associated with Ellis & Associates (E & A), and aquatic safety consulting firm that provides the National Pool and Waterpark Lifeguard Training Program (NPWLTP). Licensed lifeguards maintain high standards with constant training and practice.
