Aquatics Programs - Spring & Summer

Pool Temperatures

Please note that the temperature of the pool is 28ºC. This pool is a training centre for high performance athletes and it must be maintained at this temperature. Due to the annual shutdown of the University’s steam plant from June 9-18, pool temperatures will be around 27ºC.

Pool Closures

In the event of an unplanned pool closure, a credit will be placed on the computer file of the swimming lesson participants affected. The credit amount will be for the missed class only and can be used for any Active Living program for one year. Where possible, every effort will be made to notify parents/participants of the closure.

Please note: Only children 7 and under are allowed in the opposite gender change room.
