Swimming lesson programs are available at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, Westsyde Pool, and Brock Outdoor Pool.
Lifeguard instructors will be in the water teaching swimming lessons for Sea Otter-Whale and Swim Kids 1-3.
SK 4-10 will be lifeguard instructor led in the water to assist swimmers instead of just standing on deck. Parent and Tot lessons for children under 3 require parents to be in the water along with the instructor who will be demonstrating how to do the skills and activities.
Effective April 8, 2022, proof of vaccination is no longer required for caregivers who are attending in water with their children or who are spectating the lessons.
Find lesson schedules at Kamloops.ca/Register.
Swim Lesson Evaluations
Not sure what level to register your child in? Swim evaluations are available during any of our leisure or public swim times.
To request an evaluation, visit the front desk and a lifeguard/swim instructor will help you find the appropriate level. Remember to bring your swimming attire because this will be an in-water assessment. Children under the age of 7 are required to have an adult in the water with them for the evaluation.
Notice: Due to staff and instructor shortages, Aquafit at the Canada Games Pool has been suspended until further notice. Three lanes will be available for water running during the previously scheduled Aquafit times. If you have purchased a membership or punch card for Aquafit programs and would like to request a refund, please email email@example.com
