Portage Pool is an affiliate of the Canadian Red Cross and offers the Canadian Red Cross Swim Kids and Preschool lessons beginning as early as 4 months old. The Red Cross Swim program is a national program–if you have taken lessons with the Red Cross elsewhere, or even from another organization, you can take lessons at Portage Pool without losing your progress!

*Due to current COVID requirements we will not be offering Aquafit during our Spring 2021 session.
Aquafit classes are available for drop in and taught by certified aquatic fitness instructors. It’s a full-body workout targeting muscular strength, endurance, and cardiovascular fitness, all while being easy on the joints. You don’t need to know how to swim to participate, meaning that Aquafit is great for all ability levels.
