Pool & Playground

Pool & playground

Built in 1959, the HYC pool still carries a long tradition of spirit, sportsmanship and enthusiasm in its varied aquatic activities. Our team of certified lifeguards and instructors offer many programs such as junior swim lessons, Bronze lifesaving classes and aquafit. Our team coaches offer quality synchronized swimming, water-polo and swim team instruction to prepare our teams for competition at West Island pools. HYC’s professional staff and volunteer parents are committed to quality instruction in a fun and creative atmosphere. Safety continues to be our number one priority.


All junior programs and certifications are based on the Canadian Red Cross and Life Saving Society swim program models.
