FABULOUS FRIDAYS are here!

During our summer months, we are celebrating Fridays by hosting a themed swim.  These swims are action packed and filled with fun and prizes.  It is a fabulous way to kick-off your weekend filled with fun. 

Friday August 12th (5:00pm - 8:00pm) - Avast ye!  The Mayer Aquatic Centre has been taken over by Pirates!  It will be a swashbuckling good time, filled with loot and maybe even some doubloons.  Bring your fellow buccaneers and be prepared to walk the plank!

Frequently Asked Questions

I heard that the Mayer Aquatic Centre is transitioning from Red Cross Swim lessons to Lifesaving Swim lessons, what does this mean for my swimmer who is still taking lessons?  How will I know what lesson to register them into come fall?
We are in the process of transitioning to Lifesaving Swim Lessons as the Red Cross has stopped offering their lessons after 75 years.  The transition process will be complete when we offer our fall lessons.  Swimmers over the summer months will receive information about where they fit in the new lesson format and what level they should register for come the fall.  Additionally, staff at the Mayer Aquatic Centre will be available to answer questions about the new lesson format and will be able to help place your swimmer in the correct level this fall.  

Are you running any leadership courses running this summer?
YES!  We have a host of leadership courses to get you on the path to becoming a lifeguard, staying at home alone safely or learning the art of babysitting.  Call the Aquatic Centre today to book your spot, 780.672.9909.
