FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Do I have to know how to swim?

Ideally, we prefer our members to be able to complete one length of a standard 25yd pool. You don't need to know all four competitive strokes, but bring a willingness to learn and we'll welcome you with open arms.


Q2: Is there a trial period?

Our club requires membership in US Masters Swimming, which offers a one-time one-month free trial. We suggest that you swim with us for at least 2 weeks before registering, so that you really know if our program is right for you.


Q3: Where do I park?

Parking in the University of Idaho Gold lot 39 is the most convenient location, however, morning swimmers require an Early Morning Activity Permit, obtainable at the Parking and Transportation Services office for $15 (Free with purchase of an annual permit.) Apply for it online HERE. Pick it up and pay at their office in the Intermodal Transportation Center at Sweet Ave. & Railroad St.

For evening swimmers, Lot #39 is free after 5:00pm, however, please obey all parking signs. Some marked spaces, metered parking, and Pay-to-Park stations on Rayburn Street have different hours. See posted signs.

Bicycle parking is always free.
