It’s actually cold in central Alabama, so what are moms to do when we have energetic kids or want to get ahead on swim practice for the year? We find an indoor pool! Some of these are in locations that also offer swim lessons, so be sure to check on that if you’re interested in getting a jump start on water safety! So, without further ado, here is a list of indoor pools in Birmingham.
5549 Grove Blvd, Hoover, AL 35226
Now, you’re probably aware of Goldfish Swim School for their swim lessons, but did you know they also have family swim hours? You do not have to be enrolled in the school to enjoy these sessions, so if you have strong swimmers and just want to enjoy the water with them this is a great option! This is also a great way to get a feel for the facility if you’re considering swim lessons from them.

The Levite Jewish Community Center has both an indoor and outdoor pool. The heated, indoor pool is open year-round and offers lap swim, family swim, swim lessons, and water exercise classes.

The indoor pool schedule can be found here, so whether you’re interested in free swim or classes, be sure to check it out so you find what you’re looking for. Membership is required to use these facilities.

If you are a Hoover resident, the Hoover Recreation Center has an indoor pool that can be used with a membership or a program pass, if you are only interested in certain aquatics offerings. You can join water aerobics classes, a swim team, a swim class, or even get private swim lessons. If you’d prefer free swim, that’s available, too.
There are several locations of the YMCA across the Birmingham area, and many offer swim lessons, swim classes, and free swim in year-round indoor pools. Check with your local branch for details on membership prices and aquatics offerings.
