Temporary closures at St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre

Swimming times will be reduced at the St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre over the next few days.

Due to a staff shortage, the centre will be closing the pools at the following times:

Thursday, September 6th
- Leisure Pool closed from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
- Lane Pool closed from 3 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Friday, September 7th
- Leisure and Lane Pool closed Noon - 5 p.m.
- Lane Pool closed 5 p.m - 9:30 p.m.

Sunday, September 9th
- Leisure Pool and Lane Pool closed 7:30 a.m. - 11 a.m.

"Lifeguard and aquatics instructor recruitment is ongoing and we should be back up to full strength shortly," the city's aquatic supervisor Jennifer Green says via a release. "Many communities are facing a shortage of aquatics staff as the students we typically hire for these types of jobs have more and more demands for their time, including studies and other extracurricular activities."
