We remind our patrons to follow all policies & procedures, and to respect others while at the pool facilty.

Procedures are the same as when we were previously running our program at CGAC, & we would like to emphasize "Red Zone" protocol;

  • No spectators in the building unless they are responsible for supervision of children 18 and under.

Furthed detailed descriptions of policies and procedures can be found here.

Program Extension

10 classes were missed over the lockdown, and to compensate we are currently planning to add back some of the original “no class" date practices.

We will keep you updated as and let you know as soon as these dates are confirmed. In the event that we cannot secure these practice times, we will offer 5 practice fees to be refunded or used as a future credits.

The first additional practice is Saturday February 27th. We are trying to add March 17th, 20th, 27th and May 8th as additional supplementary practices as well. 

We are also looking at extending the program through mid August. Please let us know if this is something you may be interested in.
