Please note: Beginning on May 2nd, 1:00pm – 3:50pm Open Swim on Fridays will only run from 3:00pm – 3:50pm. At 1:00pm the pool will be used to run the SHARKs program and therefore there will not be a lane available from 1:00pm – 3:00pm. Thank you for your understanding.
YMCA-YWCA of Guelph is committed to quality and convenient swim programs for all ages and all members. All members have access to the pool programs included in their membership.
The YMCA swim program uses a positive environment to focus on swim skill as well as relationship between participant and instructor. The YMCA swim program works with each participant as an individual, encouraging them to develop their swim ability at their own pace. The YMCA has programs for all age groups and all skill levels.

By Provincial guidelines, all children under 6 years and non-swimmers under 10 years must have a parents or guardian (16 years or older) in the water within arm’s reach, to a maximum of 2 children (0r 4 if all children are wearing lifejackets), per parent/guardian.
*A child 6 to 9 years of age may use the pool independently after passing the YMCA Canada swim test (which can be administered at any time).
