JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

This weekend, Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19, the Joplin Swim Team will host their annual swim meet at Schifferdecker Pool.  Schifferdecker Pool will be closed to the public both of these days, and patrons are encouraged to go to either Cunningham or Ewert Pools which will be open July 18 and 19.

Schifferdecker Pool is open regular hours, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, July 17, however Family Swim Night will not be offered that evening to allow time for the team to set up for the meet. 

Both Cunningham and Ewert Aquatic Centers will be open during regular hours, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Both offer various amenities for children of all ages and their families, including a zero depth entry into the main pool area; an in-pool shaded rest area; and interactive spray features. Plus each has various amenities that draw kids of all ages into the water. Younger children will enjoy play areas in the water, and more experienced swimmers can jump, dive and slide their way into the water. For those enjoy the sunshine or prefer to stay dry, expanded deck areas with sunbathing opportunities plus several shaded canopy areas with deck furniture are featured at each location.
