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 45-minute and one-hour lane swim and one-hour 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.

Effective Monday, September 20, the Paperny Family JCC will be implementing the Restriction Exemption Program and will require all members and patrons of 12 years and older to have received at least their first vaccination on or before September 6, 2021 to enter the facility. Upon entry, proof of one of the following must be shown:

  • Government-issued proof of COVID-19 double vaccination (between September 20 and October 25, proof of a single dose will be accepted as long as the dose was given two or more weeks prior to attendance);
  • Proof of a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service (tests from AHS or Alberta Precision Laboratories not allowed); or
  • Documentation of a medical exemption.

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.

Group Lessons

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.
