To ensure the smooth operation of the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, we do have certain policies that must be adhered to by both patrons and employees.  Please take the time to review these:

Conditions of Use

Drop-In Leisure Swimming

Everyone is welcome to lap swimming during all of our regular operational hours as well as use of on deck facilities: hot tubs, sauna and steam room. Water joggers are also welcome at most times except during large rentals or during program times. During Swimming Lesson times, pool access may be restricted to the use of lap lanes only. These restrictions help us maintain the quality of the teaching environment for our Learn to Swim Program. Pool and multi-purpose room availability is posted each week at our Front Desk.

Lap Swimming Etiquette

Lap Swim Etiquette

When we work together, lap swimming can be a wonderful experience for all levels of need and fitness and enhances the aquatic experience for all patrons. Smile and enjoy your workout.

Number of People in a Lane: Several people (as many as 8 or more), can fit in a lane if proper etiquette is observed and swimmers of like speed are together.
Lane Speed: It is very important to swim in a lane with other swimmers of similar speed. As you face the pool from the shallow end, the fastest lane is in the middle, and the slowest lane is on the outside. Fast and slow are relative terms, so take some time to observe the swimmers in the pool and take your best guess as to where you should swim.
