JUNIOR BLUES
 
 

This is a sample image


The Junior Blues program offers countless ways for young people to learn new skills, make friends and stay active in a supportive and inclusive environment. Whether your child is jumping into the pool for the first time or training for a regional gymnastics competition, there really is something for everyone.

SCHEDULES + FEES 
Spring schedules are available now, with registration beginning April 10.

SPRING + SUMMER AQUATICS
The 25 yard pool will be closed from May - August for renovations.  When the pool re-opens in September it will be more welcoming for learn to swim programs with a shallow end, new filtration systems and a slightly warmer temperature.  However because all programs need to fit into the Varsity Pool and the Teach Pool for the summer there will be a reduction in the number of learn to swim spaces and programs offered; particularly in private lessons and leadership courses.  Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross and NLS will not be offered this summer.  We regret the inconvenience and look forward to the pool re-opening next fall.

SKATING UPDATE - April 19/20

Hello skating participants,

I’d like to apologize for the ongoing confusion relating to the Junior Blues skating classes.  There has been some staff transitions and a few classes were missed in the double checking for event cancellations and long weekends.

The Child and Youth skating classes, including private lessons will NOT be operating on the Easter long weekend, Saturday April 19 and Sunday April 20.  This weekend was not included when calculating the pricing for the lessons.

The end date for the weekend classes is:  Saturday April 26 + Sunday April 27.  Unfortunately we do not have a spring or summer skating program since we don’t have any ice!  If you’d like to continue skating programs during the summer there are programs that operate out of the West Toronto Skating Club and the North Toronto Skating Club.

Registration for other Junior Blues programs begins April 10 with most programs running during May/June (many of our coaches and instructors are university students who write their final exams during April).

Please let me know if you have any questions and I apologize for the confusion and inconvenience regarding the cancellations.

Jen Leake

Manager, Children & Youth
