The Centre pool, also known as the Friday Aquatic Center, was opened in 1995. Enjoy cruising down the 96 foot water slide or, for our smaller members, the 7 foot minnow slide or turtle slide. Take on the pool climbing wall and splash back into the water when you reach the top! Walk on water with our AquaObstacle Course and see if you can make it all the way across. The hot tub is available for anyone 16 years of age and older.

Our pool has 25-yard lap lanes, is zero-depth entry, and open for families to enjoy together! Lifeguards are on duty at all times and it’s heated so you can swim all year round.

Pool use is free with your membership! If you are not a Centre Member, you are able to purchase a day pass to access the pool. Check out the pool schedule for days and times.

If it’s your first time visiting, see below for our Pool Rules and Safety Standards.

Safety Standards

Safety is our number one priority. It’s important to the Centre that we ensure the safety of anyone that uses the deep end of our pool. When someone goes into the deep end, they need to be comfortable enough to go under the water, orientate themselves, and be able to swim a longer distance to reach the wall.

Deep End Test for Pink Wristbands

All guests and members under the age of 16 years will need to wear a pink wristband to use the deep end of the pool. This includes lap lanes, climbing wall, AquaObstacle Course, and slide (if under 48″ and riding solo). The deep end swim test will require successful completion of the following skills:
1. Jump into 12 feet of water without goggles.
2. Recover without wiping eyes.
3. Tread water for 15 seconds.
4. Swim 25 yards with face in the water and arms out of the water (no doggy paddle).
5. Must put face in at least 3 times throughout the 25 yard swim.

What This Means for Swimmers

Deep end tests can be performed by all of our lifeguards at any time. While this means a little bit of extra time, we value all swimmers’ safety and believe this is an important step to take. Thank you for understanding.
