Frequently asked questions

Why do children under the age of 7 years using the pool and children aged 7 to 9 years who are non-swimmers, need to be supervised?

This policy is for the safety of the children. The implementation of this standard has been strongly recommended by the Ontario Ministry of Health, which regulates the operation of public swimming pools.

If children 9 years of age or younger are not accompanied by a guardian or adult, what will happen?

They will be tested in the pool, but if unable to comfortably swim 25 meters of the pool, they will be asked to leave.

Why are children 12 years and under not allowed in the Weight Room?

This policy is for the safety of the children and other users in the weight room. Weight training is a skilled activity that requires physical and mental maturity.

Why are children 7 years and under not allowed in any fitness area?

This policy is for the safety of the children and other users. Equipment is specifically designed for adult users. Babysitting is available for children 8 years and under.

How will the facility check ages?

The age will be checked at the desk and identification may be asked for.

Day lockers are available in each of the change rooms. Please bring your own lock and remove it when you leave. Locks are available for rent. Yearly rentals are available for members only.
