ABAC Voted Business Of The Month!


Whoo hoo! The Marketing Committee of the South County Chambers of Commerce—a group of local business owners who represent various industries—selected Avila Bay Athletic Club & Spa as the Business of the Month for July! The club was nominated for our strict adherence to COVID safety protocols in keeping members safe. We are very honored and grateful for this recognition! We love the South County Chambers of Commerce!


MyZone Update


MyZone has been a great motivator to many of our members maintain their health and fitness! It's a fun way to turn exercise into a game and to motivate you. The current challenge is members vs staff. Feel free to join in anytime – we are also happy to help you purchase a MyZone heart rate monitor. They can be worn anywhere, and the new version called the Switch can be worn in the pool so you get those "MEPS" while swimming! The members are currently leading the staff – but we are working hard to catch up! This challenge ends on July 15, and we will definitely start a new one on August 1!


Pool Reminders


-Please remove all band-aids before swimming and put them in the trash
-No glass containers on the pool deck
-Swim diapers are required for those needing a diaper – no regular diapers are allowed in the pool
-No water guns or hard balls allowed
-No flotation devices larger than 24" x 24"
-No one under the age of 16 is allowed in the large "Adult" Jacuzzi
- You do not need a reservation to use the large pool. Lanes 1 & 2 are open for drop in use all day long. Only lanes 3-6 require a reservation.
-Dry off before entering saunas. We have had many repair issues stemming from people using them while wet.
-Guests are welcome in all areas of the club. You may have up to seven total people at your reserved small pool area.


Water Safety Reminders


We take water safety very seriously and our staff have some friendly reminders that came to mind when thinking about you and your children's safety around our pools:

"Accidents happen when you feel someone else is watching"
-Lifeguards are never a substitute for parent's direct supervision.

"Only takes a minute, drowning is preventable"
-ABAC requires parents to be actively watching their children.

"Arms reach could a safe a life"
-Anyone under the height of 43" must wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket, or be within an arm's length of a parent.

We care about you!
We will be handing out Water Watcher Cards throughout the month of July. Please keep in mind that there are no lifeguards on duty.
