The Sir Max Aitken Pool is the most heavily used area of the L.B. Gym. The SMA Pool is used by athletes, community user groups and clubs from morning to night!

We are pleased to offer swimming lessons, bronze medallion/ bronze cross classes and lifeguard certification courses. Additionally, we offer adult lap swims, free swims and family swim times.

For more information on program offerings, check out the Aquatic Program page!

The SMA Pool is a training facility for many competitive water sport clubs and recreational club users. If an event conflicts with the regular swimming schedule, cancellation dates are posted for your viewing.

Outside user groups can book pool time by contacting our Aquatics Coordinator, Robin Ferdinand, at
