This Olympic length (50 m) pool features six lanes. It is home to the Laurier Golden Hawk swimming team, the Region of Waterloo (ROW) Swim Club, the Laurier competitive lifeguarding team, prospective National Team members and many previous Olympic swimmers. The pool provides over thirty hours of recreation programming every week, including lane swimming, aquafit, and intramurals.
Come and be apart of a diverse, hard working, friendly guard team and spend the academic year improving your lifeguarding skills! From guarding competitive swim meets to the daily noon swim, this job will be a great push to improve all aspects of your lifeguard skills.
2019/2020 lifeguard applications are due September 8th by midnight and the job posting can be found on the Navigator website (job ID: 128291). Successful applications will be contacted and required to attend a wet skills screening and interview. Please email the aquatic coordinators Chloe Fedy-Williton (email@example.com) and Adam Dougall (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
Continuing this year’s to the Group Ex schedule is a muscle pumping, fun filled, exciting aqua fit class!
This class will not be like your grandparent’s aqua fit class!
It is a high cardio, high resistance class that will be sure to get your heart rate up! Using equipment with the added resistance of the water, it will give you that full body workout you’ve been craving. In the 45 minute classes, you will be introduced to different movements in the water that will raise your heart rate, work your muscles and give you an all around great workout! If you’ve always wanted to get in the swimming pool at Laurier, here is an excellent opportunity to sign up for Group Ex and give it a try!
Class details will be realesed after the pool has reopned.
**Because of the buoyancy of the water, this class is especially good for athletes who have sustained any injuries and cannot do weight bearing exercises.
