The Sarnia Riding Club features a seasonal pool that opens May long weekend and closes early September (weather dependant). Please see below for all that we offer during our on season, potential lifeguards/swim instructors are asked to submit resumes for the upcoming year in January.

See you back next season!

Our Pools

We have two beautiful pools.  The large main pool  is 25 yards long with shallow and deep ends and is heated throughout the season. In a sheltered, enclosed area you will find  a shallow wading pool where toddlers love to splash. The main pool has a slide and two diving boards and is perfect for family fun and lane swimming. The pool is equipped with starting blocks as we train for, and host competitive swimming events. The swimming pools are protected from the wind and surrounded with comfortable relaxing chairs.  A grassy area provides some variety for play.

Swimming Activities Offered

  • Swimming and lifesaving courses taught by qualified instructors.
  • Small class sizes that offer best results for your child.
  • Competitive swim team, with experienced coaches, that participate in this popular activity and several continue throughout the winter in Canadian Amateur Swimming Association competition.
  • Periods of pool time set aside for adult practice and exercise swimming.
  • Morning Master swim program.
