Swim Club Policies


The Middletown Swim Club is one of the oldest Swim Clubs in Monmouth County. The Middletown Sports Complex has continued the legacy of the Swim Club and made it even more enjoyable for all members.

Enjoy days at the pool, recreational activities, live music, ice skating, and more! More information on 2023 registration and rates can be found below, as well as a list of amenities. We welcome Middletown and non-Middletown Residents as well as daily passes! We are also available for parties daily. Let the countdown to Summer begin!
