The AQHI in the city is currently sitting at a 9. We have not heard from the city, but we are assuming the outdoor pools are closed this morning.
Please be advised that we will not know whether the pool will be open until the morning as it is dependent on air quality. An AQI of 7 or greater is considered high and outdoor physical activity is not recommended, please check the weather network in the morning as we are not sure how much notice we will get from the city for cancellation of our pool time. We may not be able to post in advance. Thanks for your understanding.
We have just been informed by the city that all outdoor pools will be closed this evening due to the air quality alert. There will be no practice this evening.
Please be advised that swimming on Sunday is cancelled… we just received word from the city that unfortunately Fred Broadstock will not be open until NEXT week so Sunday swims will begin on the 27th of June.
Summer Swimming is back!
We are excited to be starting back in the water on Tuesday, June 14th. As of June 12th, our pool times are as follows.( Please note that we are aiming to be as accurate as possible but there may be changes.) With the exception of cancellations due to thunderstorms we will do our utmost to advise of any changes well in advance.

Please note that if you plan to swim for 2 hours on Sunday that the coach may ask you to swim in a different lane to accommodate those who are coming for a one-hour session. The Sunday sessions were not intended as a continuous practice and there may be some challenges for those who wish to use it as such.
If you were not registered with EMSC in 2020-2021 then you will need to pay an additional $37.00 for registration with SWIM ALBERTA (to be completed by the EMSC Registrar). Please add this fee on top of your selected training fees.
