Pool Information

Greetings from the Warroad Aquatics Group!

My name is Rebecca Willems and I oversee the Warroad Swimming Pool.  I have been the swimming pools aquatics director for the past ten years.  My background in aquatics is quite extensive. I was a lifeguard and a competitive swimmer prior to graduating for the University of North Dakota with an undergraduate degree in physical education and a graduate degree in sport psychology.  I am currently certified as a certified pool operator, a lifeguard, a water safety instructor, a U.S.A. Swimming Coach, a High School Swimming & Diving Coach, and I am also a lifeguard instructor. 

What we try to accomplish here is giving everyone an enjoyable and worthwhile experience at our facility.  We have a number of programs that we offer to different age groups.  Our goal is to introduce our pool to as many people in the community as we can.

The pool is an important feature of the middle school and high school physical education programs.  Swim Teams are involved in both school programs and as extracurricular activities.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our programs listed below.
