Our Steven Blitz Aquatics Centre consists of a 25 meter, 5 lanes salt water pool, a hot tub, and a steam room. We offer a vast variety of activities that include swimming lessons, lane swim, open swim and aqua fitness classes. Two lifeguards are scheduled to guard the aquatics area to ensure a clean and safe environment.
We are now offering a combination of pre-bookable and drop-in swimming time slots. The capacity will remain at two people per bookable lane which will be assigned to you by the lifeguard. All participants who are in the pre-bookable lane must be booked in before using the booked lanes. There will be no capacity limits for a drop-in lane. JCC members will be able to book their spots online two days in advance and the public one day in advance.
Please view the pool schedule for available drop in swim times.
Every week, we offer average of 16 aqua fitness classes free to our members (excluding Aqua Healing). The general public may pay a drop-in fee to attend the class. Our 50 minutes classes vary in intensity and fitness level so as to meet the needs and abilities of all participants.
Interested in keeping up with your swimming skills? Come join us in one of our weekly recreational swim clubs. These clubs have benefits ranging from an increase in muscular endurance, increase in cardiovascular health, and learning water safety skills to become a lifeguard! These workouts will vary from beginner, intermediate, and advanced. From endurance and interval training to stroke improvement, these workouts will vary in distance and intensity.
If you are looking to become a lifeguard or swim instructor, Calgary JCC is the place for you! The JCC can run the entire certification course for individuals who are working towards their lifesaver goals. We run one bronze class on a seasonal basis and if enough interest if shown we can offer the national lifeguard or lifesaving swim instructor certification courses.
With first aid and CPR training, candidates will become part of the chain of survival. Candidates will learn the most up to date CPR training. We have dedicated instructors that teach through various methods to make the course fun and informative.
