Aquatics

Due to the recent change in Covid-19 guidelines set out by the Province of Ontario, we are no longer able to offer swim lessons this fall. We are hopeful that swim lessons will return for the winter session and we will keep you posted. Advanced Aquatics programs are still running.  If you were registered for lessons, a member of our Aquatics Department will be in touch with you soon. If you have questions please contact Aquatics Director, Jordan Masson jmasson@jccottawa.com.

The Levitank pool is a 4 lane, 25m Main Pool with a beach-like ramp, therapeutic hot tub, shallow baby pool, slide, and patio lounge.

The pool office handles first aid and emergency response for the entire SJCC, and features a small Aquatic Pro Shop with discount prices on goggles and caps.

 

GENERAL POOL & HOT TUB SCHEDULE

All swimming is by appointment only.

Parents of children in Parent & tot, Preschool classes, and Preschool semi-private lessons must enter the pool with the child for the lesson

Admission Standards for Children

Standards have been issued by the Office of the Chief Coroner to assist lifeguards in maintaining adequate surveillance over the whereabouts and the activities of young bathers while they are inside the pool enclosure.

  • Children ages 8 to 10 are required to pass a swim test in order to swim unsupervised. Children who do not complete the test are required to be directly supervised by a parent or guardian (16+) who is present in the water within arms reach at all times.
  • Children under the age of 8 may not be admitted to the swimming pool unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian (16+) who is in the water within arms reach of the child, with a maximum of two children for each parent or guardian

Parent & Tot Classes

Maximum 4 participants. Our Parent & Tot programs make learning to swim a family affair! The lessons are designed for new swimmers anywhere from 3 months to 3 years, and introduce young children to the water.  Classes are full of songs, games and plenty of friends!

Preschool Levels

Maximum 4 participants. Tailored to the needs of 3-6 year olds who are just learning to swim.  By keeping class sizes low, we are able to ensure that every child feels comfortable learning to move around in the water in a fun and safe manner. Each child will have 1 guardian with them in the water. Guardian must be 16 years and up

Swimmer Levels

Maximum 4 participants. Our Swimmer program makes sure children learn how to swim before they get in too deep. Swimmer progressions accommodate 5 to 12-year-olds including absolute beginners as well as swimmers who want to build on the basics. We stress plenty of in-water practice to develop solid swimming strokes and skills and incorporate Water Smart® education in all levels.
