Current TVA-sponsored programming
Our 2016 survey found that nearly half of all Teton Valley respondents to our survey were swimming once a month in the summer... but only 29% of residents swam once a month in the winter. This, coupled with findings that one third of responding households included a non-swimmer, highlight the need for improved access to pools during this period of time before our facility and stepping stone projects are in place. To directly address this disparity in access and utilization during the winter months, Teton Valley Aquatics will be providing free swimming at the Teton County/Jackson Rec Center from 12 - 8 PM on Saturday 3/7, 4/21, 5/12 and 5/19, to allow residents of Driggs, Victor, Tetonia, Swan Valley and Alta, to have FREE access to lap swimming, leisure pools and slides, therapy pools and hot tubs! Come have fun with your fellow community members, exercise, and learn about TVA's progress! See you at the pool!
Winter Sports Sponsorship
TVA is proud to be working towards sponsoring the winter sports swimming program for Tetonia Elementary School this winter! By covering participation fees, and in some cases, providing swim suits and towels to children in need, we are ensuring that more children have the opportunity to learn to swim! This program-specific donation is saving lives right here in Teton Valley! Thank you to our wonderful supporters!
Teton Valley Swims at the Jackson Rec Center
The Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Department has been an incredible source of guidance to us during our journey. On select Saturdays this winter and spring, TVA will be sponsoring free swimming for Teton Valley, Idaho residents, including lap pool time and leisure pool time! Keep in tune with Teton Valley Aquatics on social media for program dates and times!

Decision Point Markers
A collaborative effort to improve assessment of aquatic ability level, environmental concerns, and PFD access at local areas for aquatic recreation. Brought on by members of our committee and Board, after being involved in rescues of individuals who were actively drowning in the Teton River during the summer of 2017. More information coming soon.
