Pool Rules & Guest Fees
Pool Party Application
Swim Team
The Somerset Dolphins, supported by the Town, compete in the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL). Our team is open to any Town of Somerset resident, 6-18 years of age, who can pass the deep-water test.

The team practices every weekday afternoon after Memorial Day and each morning after school is out. There are competitive dual Swim Meets every Saturday morning from mid-June through July.

We also have several Wednesday Night B-Meets and one big Relay Carnival. There is a final Divisional Championship Meet between all of the six teams in our division. At the end of the season, we have a banquet with trophies, skits, and swimming. We also have weekly social events. The emphasis is on having fun, eating pizza, and developing each swimmer. We want this to be an enjoyable community activity, not an elite group of really fast swimmers.
Water Aerobics
Classes Offered at the Somerset Pool

Water aerobics classes at the town pool provide residents with enjoyable opportunities to exercise with friends and neighbors. Water aerobics are designed to improve cardiovascular fitness, strength, endurance, balance, flexibility, and coordination. Classes are currently held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings and are conducted by enthusiastic, experienced, and certified teachers. There is nothing like exercising in the pool on a hot day while looking up at the blue sky and green trees!
