Swim Descriptions

Lengths Swim

The pool is divided into three lanes (slow, medium and fast) and is reserved for the use of those both capable of, and intending to swim repeated lengths of the pool.

Recreational (REC) SwimBoy swimming

Senior Swim

A swim period reserved for those who hold a GAC Senior membership (65 yrs+) to swim lengths. Only senior swimmers permitted.

Family Swim

A swim period reserved for Children/Youth members and their parents. Children without an adult present will not be admitted and vice versa. Children (12 years and under) must be directly supervised by a person 13 years or older, who is also in the water and within arm’ s reach.

Please note: For sanitary reasons, all infants must wear swim pants in the pool.

Aquafit

Is there really such a thing as gentle exercise that gets results’ Absolutely! Aquafit, or exercising in the water, provides a superb workout with little or no impact on your body. Not a swimmer? Not a problem, because Aquafit offers many options for non-swimmers, such as using the shallow end for those who prefer to stay out of the deep end or making use of suspension belts to enable deep-end access. Exercises done in water reduce stress on muscles and incorporate both gentle therapeutic motions with vigorous movements, making Aquafit the perfect class for all ages and all fitness levels.
