Programs and Classes
Water Exercise (WX)
Water Exercise is low to zero weight bearing and is great for aerobic exercise that won't punish your joints. Drop-In rate is $6.50 per day. Registration rate is $5.50 per day
You can register for only the classes you are able to attend at $5.50/class! This rate is only applied when you register in advance for more than one day of class.
Register by phone: call the Aquatic Center at 509-359-6923 or 359-4252, or mail-in your check to EWU Aquatic Center WX, 337 Pavilion, Cheney WA 99004. In-person registration is still available, but not preferred, due to social distancing. Registration is now open for the 3 Winter sessions below.
Covid-19 restrictions - WX will be drop-in for the week of EWU's Spring Break: 3/22-26. THE CLASS LIMIT IS 12 due to social distancing requirements. Register early. WX participants will enter via the front desk as usual and use the locker rooms for changing. Although rental lockers are available, day-use lockers are not available during the pandemic. Please go to the shallow end to access the pool, if in the morning class. You can go to either end for the evening class, depending upon the number of lap swimmers and how much space is available. Face coverings are required until you get into the water. Leave your mask on a deck chair. Be sure to disinfect the chair with the provided cleaner as you leave. Current protocol is for WX instructors to remain on deck and participants must remain greater than 6' apart. We recommend about twice that distance, due to heavy breathing during exercise.
