Schedule while Orillia Pool Closed

Thank you for your patience and understanding while the Orillia Y pool is closed.       We have acquired pool time at Gravenhurst Y and Barrie Y.       Click here for practice times: Schedule during Orillia Y closure

Orillia YMCA Pool Closed

An email was sent out Saturday Nov 16 to all members with the following information:

Hello all members, I just received a call (Saturday at 1:00) that the Y pool will be closed for at least a week…..a sound baffle fell from the ceiling over night, and was floating in the pool this am.      

Now,  as a health and safety concern they need to ensure the remaining baffles are secure…… 
As a first step, I  have looked into pool time at Gravenhurst YMCA and we will do what we can to at least keep our competitive swimmers in the pool over the next week (especially those preparing for upcoming competitions)…..
*Since we have competitions fast approaching, the competitive levels:  Sr Novice and up, require the most urgent pool time.     The priority will be for those training groups initially.   If we can get our Jr Novice and Channel Kittens in a pool we will.     Otherwise we will add whatever pool time we have lost to the end of the session (assuming we are out one week of training).
  We appreciate your patience and understanding while we try to find some pool time during this very unfortunate situation.        *We may also add extra dryland training if we are unable to acquire pool time at another location.
Fingers crossed we can figure this out.     I will update you as I can.
