Change in Swim Schedule

December 7, 2013 – A message from the manager of the Richcraft Recreation Complex Kanata:

Good afternoon, thank you for helping us spread the word on our change in the swim schedule. Our goal is still to offer two lanes of lap swimming all day, the schedule that was published in the guide has that commitment…however due to the unexpected closure at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, our sister facility, we have modified our schedule temporarily until their pool is re-opened. More specifically we have accommodated over 600 children for swim lessons, therefore we had to hire more staff to offer a greater number of classes; this affects lap swimming which will not be available between 4 and 7pm Monday to Friday. We also will accommodate their two swim clubs, the Sea Hawks Swim Club and the Vicious Fishes Masters Club on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings between 6am and 8:30am; further affecting change to the lap swimming schedule.

 Although we recognize this is disappointing for some of our residents we also have accommodated many families and athletes in our area by making this temporary change.

 Any help in informing our residents is greatly appreciated, we are re-printing our flyer and the schedules are available online, as soon as GRC re-opens their pool we will resume our initial schedule, offering lap swimming between 6am and 9am Monday to Thursday, 6am-8pm on Friday and 8:30am-7pm on Saturday and Sunday.
