POOL INFORMATION – July 12th, 2021 Update

New Covid-19 Pool Capacity Protocols as of July 12th

As the Covid-19 situation has continued to improve, we have vigilantly been monitoring all
relevant updates from the Quebec government regarding public health policies. With the
recent announcement that social distancing rules will be relaxed to 1 meter starting this
Monday (July 12th), we now have the opportunity to begin increasing our maximum pool
capacity. This will be done in a cautious and well-planned manner to ensure we are able to
offer more pool space in the safest way possible. Below are all the new capacity limits that
will be in place as of July 12th. These numbers include all people in the pool area, even
those who do not intend to swim.
Free Swim: 50 people
Baby Pool: 12 people
(Including both babies and parents)
Adult Lap Swim: 16 people
(4 per lane)
Adult Free Swim (shallow end): 16 people
Aquafit: 16 people
(Those who registered will be contacted directly if there is room for them in more sessions)
Class sizes for all other programming will remain the same for now.
These numbers will be regularly revisited to ensure they are in line with the current health
guidelines in effect and will be changed accordingly as the situation develops.
For any further questions please contact the pool at pool@hudsonyachtclub.com

POOL INFORMATION – May 28th, 2021 Update

The preparation of the pool for the 2021 season is well underway with a planned June 12th pre-season opening date, weather permitting. Free swim and lap swim will be offered, with preseason hours of operation to follow shortly. Omnify bookings will be made available starting June 7th.

Signup for programming will be available starting June 1st -CLOSED .

RECREATIONAL SWIMMING

The recreational swim periods will be governed by the same online registration process we used last year (Omnify) with the hope of being able to allow a similar capacity as last year. Sessions will again run in one-hour blocks, with the first 45 mins for swimming, and the remaining 15 mins used to disinfect all surfaces before the following session begins. Members may select one block per day each week. When blocks are not full, members may enter the pool area on a ‘walk-up’ basis until we have reached our maximum capacity. The posting of a yellow flag at the pool entrance indicates that the maximum capacity has been reached while a blue flag shows that space is available. Members should note that during this period of restricted availability access to the pool is for members only.  Registration for the first portion of the pre-season schedule will open June 7th.

PROGRAMMING

We plan on offering swim lessons, swim team and synchro in a similar format to last year. We also plan on offering parents and tots in addition to leaders if a minimal level of interest is reached.
