Aquatics

Splish splash, it's time to hit the pool! 

We cater to a broad spectrum of aquatic interests through our programs at the Athletic Centre Varsity Pool (an eight-lane, Olympic-sized 50m pool), Benson Pool (a six-lane, 25yd pool) and a small/shallow water Teach Pool adjacent to the Varsity Pool.
