Program descriptions

Aquafit  (Fitness)

Use the resistance of the water to stretch, firm, strengthen your muscles, and improve your cardiovascular endurance.

Aquafit–HIIT (Fitness)

A high-intensity interval training class focusing on building cardiovascular strength and endurance through challenging routines of intervals and higher intensity options. You will keep your heart rate and pace up throughout the class and learn to train in both aerobic and anaerobic zones.

Aquatic Rehabilitation (Fitness)

This instructed program can assist with faster recovery, through a combination of exercises in warmer water increasing flexibility, strength and range of motion. Exercises are less stressful on the body with specific focus on hips, knees, back, shoulders and stroke recovery.

Fitness Swim (Recreation)

The pool is divided into lanes for participants to swim, water walk or water jog the length of the pool.

Family Friendly Warm Waters (Recreation)

Enjoy a warmer water swim or relax alongside the calming jets.

Leisure Swim (Recreation)

A great way for all ages to spend time together in our shallow water pools, the lap pool is not available at this time.

Movement Enhancement (Fitness)

This instructed program will help you maintain your mobility through a variety of stretches that will increase your range of motion, improve
your balance and develop muscle tone.

Public Swim (Recreation)

Everyone is welcome to enjoy all pool features.

Single Lane Swim (Recreation)

One lane will be available for you to swim lengths alongside other programs scheduled at the same time.

Soothing Waters Swim (Recreation)

This non-instructional opportunity is for those who require space and time in warmer water to work through stretches or exercises. You may
bring a personal therapist or work independently in the water.

Women’s Only Swim (Recreation)

Women, girls and children under six (6), can feel comfortable and enjoy this dedicated swim. All female staff is provided during this
swim.

Swimming lessons

The City of Guelph welcomes you to our Learn to Swim program. All of our pools offer the Lifesaving Society Swim For Life program, with a focus on skill development and safety in and around the water.Register for swimming lessons online

What level is most suitable?

Participating in the proper swimming lesson level is imperative to your child’s success. Please have your child assessed to determine level. Swim assessments are available at West End Community Centre, Centennial Pool and Victoria Road Recreation Centre. Please refer to the Learn to Swim chart, or contact your facility to set up a swim assessment.

What makes our staff qualified?

Our instructors are certified through the Lifesaving Society and have completed more than 200 hours participating in leadership development and assisting in swimming lessons. Assistant Instructors and Volunteers are assigned to swimming lessons based on swimmer needs at the discretion of the aquatic team.

Did you miss a lesson?

Swimming lessons may be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Makeup lessons will not be available due to participant absence.

What are my lesson format options?

Group lessons

Follow the ratios outlined by the Lifesaving Society Swim for Life program.

H20 lessons

This smaller ratio class of 2:1 allows your swimmer to receive more one on one attention from the instructor.

Private lessons

Allow swimmers to receive one on one instruction.

Women’s Only lessons

Lessons scheduled during this timeframe at Centennial Pool are available to women of all ages, and children six (6) and under. Only female staff will be scheduled to work at this time. No males are permitted onsite during this timeframe.

Schedules subject to change.
