Centennial Pool

We are pleased to announce that fall swimming lessons are opening for registration on October 19, 2020 at 8:30 am online or by phone at 519-832-2008 x131.

You can view the current offerings starting today, October 16, at SaugeenShores.ca/Register and by checking out our fall lesson schedule here.

Aquatics staff are also launching a new 'Future Lifeguards' program for ages 11-14 to learn more about the training and skills needed to become a lifeguard. This weekly program will focus on individual rescue and first aid skills and stroke correction and endurance in the pool.

COVID-19 precautions

As we introduce modified swimming lessons to the community, there will be a limited number of group and private lessons available this fall.

Our top priority is keeping staff, participants and the community safe, and we appreciate community's patience and understanding as everyone adjusts to these new practices and procedures.

These modified lessons will look different. Some of these changes include:

  • Instructors will remain 2 metres away from participants at all times and there will be no hands-on instruction
  • Instructors will teach from the deck and demonstrate the skill in the water  
  • Parents/guardians must be in the water for preschool levels and Swimmer levels 1 to 3
  • Private lessons are available for those 8 years and older

Staff anticipate expanding lessons for winter 2021. The community can help us build the schedule by registering for the level(s) they're interested in for winter 2021 beginning October 19 through November 30.
