Thank you for staying home if you feel sick and we appreciate all you are doing to stay safe while you stay active.

What to Expect During Your Visit

Our priority is safety and all COVID-19 protocols are in place to create a safe environment for visitors and staff. Thank you for doing all you can during your visit to stay safe while you stay active.

Capacity is being managed to prevent crowding and limit contact points throughout the facility and visits are limited to 90 minutes.

When you arrive, you’ll wait outside until your booked time. A staff member will welcome you, check you in and answer any questions you may have before you enjoy your time in the pool or fitness areas.

Signs to inform you of capacity limits, pool rules and other helpful instructions are posted throughout the facility and our friendly staff are here to help.

Under public health requirements, masks are required in all indoor public spaces and should only be removed when showering or in the pool area.

Enhanced cleaning protocols which follow provincial guidelines are being used throughout all City of Victoria buildings, including Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre.

Please note, the sauna and steam room are currently closed and the hot tub maximum is two people or one household bubble at a time.

Daily use lockers are currently unavailable. Long-term locker rentals are available on request.

 

Arrive Ready to Swim or Workout

Due to occupancy limits and physical distancing requirements, our change rooms can only accommodate a small number of people at a time who are using the pool. If you are using the fitness areas you will not have access to the change rooms.

To accommodate all our patrons, everyone must move as quickly as possible through the change rooms. Showers are limited to a quick rinse before and after using the pool. Please do your personal grooming at home.

Swim Descriptions

50M Lengths

Book a spot to swim during 50M length set up. Swimmers will share lanes with up to five people per single lane, or 10 people per double lane. Lanes will be marked slow, continuous or fast. Swimmers should choose the lane that best fits their needs upon arrival and be prepared to adjust based on lifeguard direction. Reminder, clients are expected to be changed and out of the facility by the end of their booked time.

25M Lengths

Book a spot to swim during 25M length set up. Swimmers will share lanes with up to three people per single, or six people per double lane. Lanes will be marked slow, continuous or fast. Swimmers should choose the lane that best fits their needs upon arrival and be prepared to adjust based on lifeguard direction. Reminder, clients are expected to be changed and out of the facility by the end of their booked time.

20M Lengths

A great option if you want dedicated space in the pool to do an activity of your choice (swim, therapy activities, etc.) apart from others. 20M lanes will be set up as singles for one person. Reminder, clients are expected to be changed and out of the facility by the end of their booked time.

Adult Leisure (16+)

Space will be open in the main pool for adults (16 years+) to do independent leisure activities, such as water walking, therapy, gentle exercises, etc. Participants are responsible for sharing space and ensuring physical distancing. The sauna and steam room are closed, but the hot tub is open. Please note, due to size the hot tub maximum is reduced so access will be limited. Reminder, clients are expected to be changed and out of the facility by the end of their booked time.

Parent & Tot

During this time, the warm pools are set aside for adults with children 0-5 years old. Each adult may bring 1-3 children during their booking. Remember, children 0-5 years must be within arm’s reach throughout the swim.

NEW  To help us better track attendance we are now asking that both the adult(s) and the child(ren) register for the swim. But don’t worry, preschool age children qualify for a free registration fee. 

Family & Youth Swim

Book time to play in the main pool and warm pools. 25M lanes will be booked by length swimmers, but the rest of the pool will be available. Please note, children 12 and under are required to have an adult in the water during this swim (under 7s within arm’s reach). One adult may only supervise 1-3 children (0-5 years). No specific space will be assigned, and our warm pools are small, so participants are asked to be mindful of others and take turns in the warm pool/main pool. If you are looking for extra fun, book in on Saturday or Sunday at 12:30 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. for extra games and features.

NEW – To help us better track attendance please register each person attending this swim regardless of age. Children 0-5 years old qualify for a free preschool fee. Family rate is no longer an option for payment, instead you will see a discount automatically applied to your cart.
