Registered swim programs will be offered at the Aurora Family Leisure Complex starting July 20


The Town of Aurora will be implementing new procedures in order to provide safe aquatic

programs to the community. Effective Monday, July 20, the Town will be offering the following summer swim programs at the Aurora Family Leisure Complex (AFLC):

  • Lane swims with no spa pool access
  • Aquafit classes with no spa pool access
  • Private swim lessons for individuals (Levels - Swim Kids 5 and higher)
  • Aquatic sport clubs (i.e. facility permitting)

Participants are required to wear masks or face coverings inside enclosed public spaces, which includes community centres. Participants who do not follow the requirement of wearing face masks or face coverings inside the community centre will not be allowed to enter into the building or to participate in the program. Exceptions to the rule include people who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, children under the age of five, and those who require accommodation in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Pool capacities have been reduced to ensure the Town can meet the provincial orders of gatherings of no more than 10 individuals and allow participants to safely maintain physical distancing of two metres. Aquatic instructors will be teaching from the pool deck to maintain physical distancing.

All swim participants are required to set-up an online family account in advance through e-PLAY, and register for a spot for all aquatic programs through e-Play at aurora.ca/eplay. There are no drop-in options offered. Participants can cancel their reserved spot, and request a refund online up until the day before the program starts. No refunds will be provided for late requests or no shows.

As swim participants return to the pool, the following procedures should be followed:

  • Participants are asked to arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of the program to check-in at the AFLC Main Entrance, and no later than 10 minutes after the start of the program.
  • Town staff will open the doors for participants who are pre-booked through the registration process, complete a verbal screening assessment at the customer service desk, and allow participants to proceed to the pool area.
  • The main entrance at the AFLC will be closed 10 minutes after the start of the program, and participants will not be allowed to join activities.
  • Participants are allowed to use the pool change rooms, however must abide by the Town’s directional flow in an effort to promote physical distancing of two metres. Locker use is not available at this time.
  • Participants are asked to remove their mask or face covering only when they are ready to enter the pool and to put it back on once they get out of the water.
  • Participants are required to sign out at the customer service desk before they exit the building.
