Helene Madison Pool


6th Floor

An in-city oasis

Helene Madison Pool is the jewel of the 6th Floor. Swim laps, take aquatic fitness classes, splash around with the family, learn to swim, or host a birthday party. This art deco space recalls the earliest days of the WAC—and the 1930s, when Seattle native Helene Madison trained here for her record-breaking Olympic performance.

Helene Madison Pool is currently open by Mindbody reservation only. To reserve your swim time or class, please see full instructions here. See further details about current pool guidelines here.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: The pool has been experiencing a number of no-shows from members who have reserved lanes for lap swim. The Club is trying to accommodate as many swimmers as possible while dealing with COVID-19 capacity restrictions. Please be respectful toward your fellow members and cancel your appointment in MindBody if you cannot make your scheduled time. Members who repeatedly fail to make scheduled appointments will lose pool privileges.**
