Take swimming lessons or an advanced aquatics leadership program with the Town of Orangeville. We offer Lifesaving Society Swim for Life programs that focus on skills development and safety in the water.

Swimming Lessons are back this Fall! 

Registration begins Tuesday, August 24 at 8 a.m. In order to ensure a safe learning environment for all swimmers, the following guidelines have been implemented: 

  • Program capacities have been reduced to allow for physical distancing. 

  • All lessons will be taught at a distance by qualified instructors to allow participants and staff to maintain a physical distance from others. 

  • Participants in Preschool levels up to Swimmer 3B will be required to have a parent or caregiver (14 years and older) in the water with them for physical contact and safety purposes. 

  • When possible, we do encourage you to come “swim-ready” to limit the volume of people in the change rooms. 

  • Swimmers must remain at least two meters apart when in the water. 

  • Limited equipment will be used and will be sanitized between each use. 

  • Private/Semi lessons (or lessons for a family "bubble") will be available for all levels. 

  • Participants will be permitted into the facility with a maximum of 1 caregiver in order to minimize the amount of patrons in the facility. 

  • Please ensure you are wearing a mask in all public spaces such as change rooms, entering and leaving the pool deck area. Masks are not required in the pool while swimming. 

We are having a difficulty to load your requested events, please come back at a later time.
