Recreational Swims

We offer recreational swims, or “rec swims” for schools all year long. Similar to a public swim, many schools book some time with us to provide a fun and active “treat” for their students while meeting Phys Ed curriculum. Your students will get to have fun at our facility and maybe even put to good use some of the skills they learn in swimming lessons.

Rec swim bookings are available Monday-Friday between 9am and 3pm.


Year-End Swim

Book your year-end swim outdoors! There's no better place to entertain your students than the Alex Outdoor Pool . Available times are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Contact Aquatic Services at 780-980-7198 ext. 6040 for info and pricing.


Field House Bookings

Your school can choose to combine swimming lessons with a field house booking. This can be especially convenient if your school is located further from our facility or if your class sizes are quite large.
