The R.E.Walter Memorial Aquatic Centre is proud to be affiliated with the Lifesaving Society, Canada’s lifeguarding experts and the Red Cross. All of the lifeguards are trained and certified through the Lifesaving Society and hold themselves to this standard.
The Aquatic Centre offers Red Cross Lessons. Our swim instructors are trained and certified through the Red Cross, they teach and evaluate swimming strokes and related skills.
Swimming lessons are a great outlet to build confidence, pride and social skills.
Children registered in a level too advanced for their skills may be moved to the appropriate class, or withdraw/refunded. This ensures the quality and safety of the lessons.
Please note that if a swim lesson is missed by the swimmer, there is no makeup or credits for that class.
Monthly Swim Schedule
The Aquatic Centre will be open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
We will be offering drop-in public swims, lane swims and private rentals.
In order to follow the suggested guidelines for pool openings we will be introducing a few changes. You can expect the following once the pool re-opens:
- Maximum number of patrons at the pool 25 – 30
- Limited locker availability (every 4th locker blocked off)
- Limited shower availability (patrons may have to wait until people have come on deck from the shower rooms, prior to proceeding from the front counter)
- Social distancing practiced throughout the facility
- Sanitizations schedules, that include complete facility cleaning in between swim slots (so only 5 hours open for swim activities for patrons in an 8 ½ day of scheduling)
- Lifeguards will be requesting that cohort families/groups social distance from other families and individuals in the pool.
- All patrons when entering the pool, will be asked for their address and phone number for COVID-19 tracing purposes.
- Each patron will be asked COVID-19 symptom related questions upon entry.
