Welcome to the 2017 Swimming Season!
All lessons times are decided once registrations are in and instructors can plan according to numbers, everyone will be notified of their times once they've been decided (this can be a week to a few days in advance). There are no lessons on weekends. Lessons take place in the mornings. We offer all levels of Red Cross swimming lessons in each set. If you are unsure in which level to register call the pool at 967-2401 or the rec office at 967-2557.
Important: To those attending swimming lessons please keep distractions at a minimum while lessons are in progress. Talking or other kids playing or running on the deck can distract the students from learning and make teaching more difficult. Absolutely no one is allowed in the pool other than those participating in lessons during their lesson times.

Parent Water Safety
Why is Swimming Important?
- Swimming is a life-long sport
- Swimming promotes multi-generational interaction
- It's fun How Can Parents Prevent Accidents?
- Enroll children in swim lessons
- Use CSA-approved life jackets
- Make sure children aged five and under are at least an arm's length away or less
- Continuously watch all of your children, no matter what age
Facts that Parents May Not Know
- Shallow water is the most common area for drowning, especially in water that is three feet deep or less
- Majority of drowning's occur to people who had no intention of entering the water
The lifeguard's duty is to prevent accidents from happening. They are responsible for the overall safety of the facility; you are responsible for your child's safety.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS & GUARDIANS:
- If you are sending children to the pool that can't read please accompany them at least the first time and go over important pool rules, expectations and notices that are posted.
- Vandalism in the change rooms has been increasing over the years and as it is the lifeguards priority to supervise the patrons in the pool they cannot always be watching the change rooms so please explain to your children the importance of respecting the facility so it's not ruined for everyone.
