Pool policy

Senneville Pool

It has been brought to our attention that the number of Non-Residents using the Pool facilities has grown enormously this summer. As a result, the Lifeguards have become more diligent in following the Pool Policy:
 
“The Senneville Pool is open to residents and their paying guest. Guests are the responsibility of the resident who invited them. Please be sure to sign in your guest at the pool office and pay the appropriate fee.”
 
As Residents you continue to be welcome to bring your Guest (2$ fee) to enjoy an afternoon with you at the Pool.
 
Going forward this season, an Entrance Table will be located under a shade tent next to the front gate. A Lifeguard will verify residency/membership and if necessary collect the fee for any Guest that a Resident/Member brings. Non-Residents/Non-Members will not be permitted entry.
 
We’d like to ensure that the summer experience at the Pool continues to be a pleasant one. We ask that you:

  • Bring a piece of address-identifying ID to the Pool to avoid having to return home to get it
  • Accompany any Guest that you may be bringing to the Pool.

 
Resident-pool-entry in the past has included Senneville badges on swimsuits(70s&80s) and laminated Resident cards(2000s). We will revaluate the process over the coming months to see if there is a more efficient way of managing entry for 2019.
 
Have a great rest of the summer.

Swimming lessons

Senneville Pool offer fully certified Red Cross swimming lessons. Red Cross lessons focus mainly on developing all five strokes (front crawl, back crawl, breast stroke, elementary backstroke, and sidestroke), promotes fitness and endurance, and gives swimmers lifelong skills to safely enjoy other aquatic pursuits.

The summer is split up into two sessions of four weeks, giving the child the chance to move up into a higher level half way through the summer. After each four week session, there are report cards for the children highlighting their strengths and areas for improvement.

Due to our large number of members, we cannot guarantee that you will get your first pick of time, but every effort will be made to accommodate as many members as possible.

 Leaders

Leaders program provides a chance for young teens to get involved in the pool and learn the ropes of being a lifeguard. The program includes many activities that focus on leadership while giving the teens a club-like atmosphere where they can meet others their age and learn what it's like to be a leader. Being older than most of the other children at the pool, the leaders are given a chance to help out with maintenance and events if they wish. 


Throughout the summer, there are special events like movie nights and fundraisers organized by the leaders to raise money for their end-of-summer outing. Every year, at the end of the summer, the leaders can use their fundraising money and either have a free trip/dinner downtown in a limo, a day at La Ronde or many other fun activities.
