We Offer Swim Lessons, Lap Swimming, Party Rentals and More

Welcome to Max Aquatics, an indoor, 25 yard, 6 lane pool serving the instructional, fitness and recreational needs of all ages and skill levels in the western suburbs (Western Springs, LaGrange, LaGrange Park, Brookfield, Riverside and more) and nearby neighborhoods of Chicago. We are conveniently located in McCook, across the street to the south and east of The Max sports complex.  

We are located in a great swimming community.  According to USA Swimming, Chicago is the #2 swim market in the country behind Southern California.

What makes Max Aquatics different?  We are NOT just a swim school. While our main focus is on teaching youngsters water safety and swimming skills, we have programs for swimmers from 6 months to senior citizens. 

We offer a variety of swim lessons starting with Baby 'n Me at 6 months, small group lessons starting at age 3 and organized according to age.  An evaluation for each swimmer is done on the first day of each session. This will allow us to assign them to the appropriate group within their age group.

  • Lap Swimming – Swim on your own during lap swim or open swim times. Check out the schedule for open swim times. A drop in fee, ten pass or membership is required for lap swimming.

  • Water Aerobics & Water RunningWe offer a variety of classes emphasizing cardio conditioning and muscle toning.

  • Private lessons and Adult Swim Lessons are also available. Contact us for more information on packages and pricing.

  • Party Rental – Let Max Aquatics host your next birthday party, end of season sport’s party or special event.

  • Family Swim – Open pool time to come in and practice what you learned in lessons or just to have some family fun. When you are currently enrolled in swim lessons, you have free access to the pool during the designated open family swim times.

We look forward to seeing you at the pool!
