For everyone's safety, the following standard is applied for all swimmers at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex and LaSalle's Outdoor Pool. Parents and guardians are those who are a minimum of 16 years of age and who are responsible for the direct supervision of those they are accompanying. Parents and guardians are responsible for all children under the age of 10 years while in our facilities, and they must supervise them at all times.

Children 7 to 13 Years Old and Unable to Pass the Swim Skill Test

  • Swimmers must be with an adult in the pool at all times.
  • Ratio of 1 adult for 4 children or 1 adult for 8 children wearing lifejackets.

Accessibility at the Pool

The Vollmer Centre offers options to get into the pool with a lift into the hot tub (currently closed), ramp into the main pool, water wheelchairs and slings. Washroom lifts, handicap stalls, and an adult change table with lift and privacy curtain are located in our change rooms. Please call ahead to make sure these things are available for you to use. Our staff can offer information about the safety of swimmers with special needs or conditions. Call us for more information at 519-969-7771 ext. 4150.

The Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex requires that swimmers who are likely to face danger while swimming (those with serious medical conditions such as seizures, frequent fainting or those with uncontrolled behaviours or impulses) be in the water with an individual informed of the condition and responsible for them. It is also a good idea for those with seizure conditions to wear a lifejacket or a Personal Floatation Device (PFD) at all times while in the pool. PFD's are available free of charge.
