Aquatics


The Paperny Family JCC Aquatics Centre is currently experiencing staff shortages and can only offer limited lane swim and family swim times. We are actively recruiting new lifeguards and will add more swim times as soon as possible. We ask for your patience and understanding as we address this issue.

Our Steven Blitz Aquatics Centre consists of a 25 meter, 5 lanes salt water pool, a hot tub, a dry sauna 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 pre-booked lane swim and family swim as well as pre-registered aqua fitness classes. A lane will be assigned to you by the lifeguard and lanes will be shared with other guests. Up to four people are allowed for family swim.

At this time, the sauna will remain closed.

The JCC has implemented the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP) in line with the City of Calgary Vaccine Passport Bylaw. This program requires that all members and patrons 12 years and older accessing our building provide a valid Alberta vaccine record with a QR code (paper or digital), a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service or a medical exemption letter.

Aqua Fitness

We are now offering limited pre-booked spots in aqua fitness classes.

Pool Lane Bookings

We are now offering pre-booked 45-minute and one-hour lane swim and one-hour family swim. A lane will be assigned to you by the lifeguard and lanes will be shared with other guests. Up to four people are allowed for family swim.

Certifications

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.

First Aid & CPR

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.

Calgary JCC has partnered with True Blue to offer group lessons. True Blue offers ability-based learning, small class ratios and world class progression lessons. Visit True Blue's website for more information or call 403-692-3855.
