  • A.F.L.C. Pool users: Enter through the main entrance.
  • S.A.R.C. Pool users: Enter through the main entrance. 

6. Participants will need to abide by the Town’s directional flow in the pool change rooms in an effort to promote physical distancing of 2 metres.

  • Pool users can enter only through the Men’s and Women’s pool change room and cannot travel in opposing directions.
  • The Family change room is available for entry and use where required, however remains the exit for all pool users.
  • Pool users are required to abide by the rules within the Family change room (i.e. no nudity in open spaces, must change within the changing stalls).

7. Participants are asked to bring their personal belongings with them onto the pool deck and place them in a designated area. Note: The Town is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

8. Locker rental and Pool memberships will not be reinstated at this time.

9. Only essential pool equipment will be made available to participants.

  • Participants will not be allowed to access pool equipment on their own in an effort to reduce the risk of contamination.

  • Town staff will assist with providing essential pool equipment to participants.
  • Once the program ends, participants are required to put used pool equipment into a bin for cleaning purposes.

11. The Town will be cleaning and disinfecting the change rooms, showers and washrooms more frequently as per Regional Health requirements.

12. For swim lessons, Aquatic Instructors will do their best to maintain physical distancing through:

  • Instructors will maintain a 2m distance from participants at all times. Instructors may be on the pool deck or in the water while providing instruction.

  • Not using physical manipulation to teach swim skills.
  • As per the Instructions from the Regional Medical Health Officer, Aquatic Instructors are considered “active” when teaching swimming lessons, and are permitted to remove their Face Masks on deck. Aquatic Instructors will not be wearing Face Masks while participating in the water as it is a safety concern.

Here's What You Can Do to Help

1. Participants are required to adhere to all Town policies and procedures as it relates to COVID-19.

  • Remember the rules in place to promote safe programs to all participants.

2. As per recommendations from York Region, participants are required to wear masks or face coverings inside enclosed public spaces, which includes Community Centres.

Program Processes
As we reopen community centres during COVID-19, the following processes are in place:
  • COVID-19 participant screening and Facility entry
  • COVID-19 safe practices
  • Training modifications 
In order to obtain the certification at the end of the course, participants must meet all evaluation standards during the in-person session. If you have any questions, please email Terri Edwards at the S.A.R.C.
Participants & Screening
  • Participants complete a COVID-19 screening during online registration.
  • When a participant arrives at the facility, a Facility Greeter will take attendance for contact tracing purposes, and will confirm with them on every visit whether their conditions changed since registration.
  • If a participant is feeling unwell, then they are asked to not attend the Leadership course and notify the Instructor or Town staff.
  • If a participant is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, then they will be asked to leave the building and get tested for COVID-19, and cannot return back into the Leadership course until they have confirmed a negative COVID-19 test result from the testing centre, or have completed a 14-day quarantine due to COVID-19.
    • If they do not have means of transportation, then they will be placed in an isolation area within the building, until they can be picked up.
  • Participants who miss classes due to COVID-19 are asked to email Terri Edwards at the S.A.R.C.
COVID-19 Safe Practices

The Town is following the Region’s direction and guidelines on safe practices, which include:

  • Maintain physical distancing of 2 metres.
  • Promote washing hands frequently before entering the pool and after leaving the pool.
  • Promote traffic flow by designated facility entries and exits.
  • Limit participant capacity in Leadership courses to allow for physical distancing.
  • Clean high touch surfaces frequently as per Public Health recommendations.
  • Communicate COVID-19 expectation through facility signage in prominent areas throughout the building, and information on the Town’s webpage.
  • Encourage participants to practice good hygiene (for example: cough in elbow).
  • Ensure hand sanitizers are available throughout the facility.

Promote the wearing of Face Masks and/or Face coverings in indoor enclosed areas as per the Region’s Medical Health Officer’s instructions:

  • Instructors will make every reasonable best efforts to wear Face Masks on the pool deck; however the Instructors are considered “active” when teaching Leadership courses in the pool area, and are permitted to remove their Face Masks on the pool deck.
  • Participants and Instructors will not be wearing Face Masks while participating in the water as it is a safety concern.
  • For in-water rescues, participants are encouraged to avoid face-to-face proximity during rescue activities.
Training Modifications
  • Where possible, Instructors will minimize the interaction between participants in the course by organizing participants into fixed training groups throughout the course.
  • The Town recognizes that due to the nature of Aquatic Leadership courses, there are certain evaluation items where maintaining physical distancing and the fixed training group model is not feasible.

Aquatics Learn-to-Swim Programs

  • Private classes are being offered at the A.F.L.C and S.A.R.C. To convert to a semi-private class, please contact Gregory Peri at the A.F.L.C. or Terri Edwards at the S.A.R.C.
  • For private swim classes, a parent/guardian is required to actively participate in the class if the participant is in Parent & Tot, Preschool or Swimmer 1-3.

Pre-registration is required. Register online at e-PLAY
