Get your new year off to a refreshing start by joining in this annual event at the Santa Clarita Aquatics Center.
There are many New Year’s Day traditions. Many make an annual pilgrimage to see the Rose Parade. Some others, especially those from the South, believe it is good luck to eat a bowl of black-eyed peas. It’s also the day that many decide to either quit a bad habit, or take up a good one.
If you’ve fallen between the cracks and don’t have a New Year’s tradition of your own, how about this: Take a chilly waterslide all the way down into an unheated, and downright cold swimming pool at the 9th annual Arctic Chill Polar Bear Swim at the Santa Clarita Aquatics Center?
This is a fun and FREE event where the whole family can participate. Doors open at 8:45AM, with the swim beginning at 9AM. Coffee and hot chocolate are available for swimmers. Not the type to take a dunk in a frigid pool during the middle of Winter? Don’t worry, spectators are also welcome.
The Santa Clarita Aquatics Center is located at the Sports Complex in the Centre Point area of Santa Clarita (See address below). Aside from fun events like the Arctic Chill Polar Bear Swim, the center offers a variety of programs on three separate swimming pools, and also has locker rooms and concessions for your convenience.
Not a swimmer? No worries. The Santa Clarita Sports Complex has many other activities for youth and adults.
The George A. Carvalho Santa Clarita Sports Complex is an open facility with regularly scheduled events, two full size basketball courts, volleyball, racquetball and badminton, and it is open to the public at no cost. A free membership is required. It’s a great opportunity for young people and adults alike to get some exercise and some team spirit. Check the website for operating hours.
