Annual Pool Closure & Shower Flooring Refresh

The pool area will be closed for annual cleaning and maintenance from Monday, August 22nd - Monday, September 5th.

During this closure, we'll take the opportunity to complete a shower flooring refresh in the 1st floor men's and 1st floor women's showers at YWCA Health + Fitness Centre. Unfortunately, during these two weeks, there will be an inconvenience to our members as these areas will be under construction as the old tile is removed and new tile laid.

The men's showers will be closed, however, the locker area and washrooms will be open.

The women's 1st floor showers and washrooms will be closed. Women's 1st floor changing area, totes, and lockers will be accessible for those with mobility issues. Women's second floor locker area and showers will be open.

We would like to remind you that there are more showers and great workout spaces at YWCA Fitness + Racquet Club, just a few minutes' walk from H+F!

Check back here for more info closer to Monday, August 22nd. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!

Best Practices at Health + Fitness Centre/Fitness + Racquet Club 

  • Stay home when you are feeling unwell or if you should be isolating
  • Wash hands frequently 
  • Return and sanitize equipment after use
  • Respect personal space - 2m physical distancing is encouraged
  • Consider other people’s situation - be kind, be calm 
  • Let us take care of conflicts. Things won’t always be perfect and conflicts can arise, the rule of thumb is to walk away from the situation and let us know through Member Services or comments@ywcavan.org 

 

We hope to see you soon!
