Dear Valued Members,
Outlined below are updates and notifications regarding YMCA of Regina facilities. Please review the information carefully as some areas will be experiencing brief closures or service disruptions over the next few weeks. As well new information regarding Downtown pool operating hours and lane swim times are included.
Downtown Pool Hours
Effective November 1st, 2018 the Downtown large pool will once again be open Monday to Friday at 5:30 am. This change is in response to member feedback regarding the recent changes to the pool operating hours.
In addition, lane swim times have been expanded where there are no conflicts with scheduled classes or lessons.
The full downtown pool schedule can be found here: http://regina.ymca.ca/swimming/
As of November 1st, 2018 the Downtown lane swim times are as follows:
Did you know the pool is available for private rentals? Groups or individuals can rent the pool for private use during non-peak times, and where open times are available. Member rates are $80.00 per hour or non-member rate of $140.00 per hour. Additional Lifeguards $31.10 per hour.
To book the pool for private use speak with the Aquatics Director at the Downtown or Northwest locations (306) 757-9622.
Facility Upgrades & Shut Downs
Downtown: Women’s General Change Rooms
The Women’s general change rooms will be shut down on November 1st and 2nd while new countertops are installed! General members may access the Women’s Plus locker room during this time. The family change rooms will remain open as well and are accessible for those using the facility in the company of children.
We are happy to announce that materials have been ordered and work will begin within the next three weeks on the replacement of the downtown facilities roof! Work is expected to start in November and will take up to two months to complete. No facility access restrictions or shutdowns are expected during this time.
Downtown: WiFi Access
Access Communications has recently begun the installation of fibre optic internet lines into the Downtown facility. This upgrade will provide improved WiFi signals across the entire downtown location. New routers and hubs will be installed once the lines are completed. Keep an eye out for new WiFi passwords in areas previously lacking signal, and an overall improved experience with internet connectivity at the center very soon!
Downtown: Judo Rooms/Basement Hallway
The judo rooms and basement hallway are scheduled to receive a deep cleaning, patching and painting over the Remembrance Day long weekend (November 10th-12th). Classes scheduled in this room over the long weekend will be cancelled.
East: Women’s Change Rooms
The Women’s change rooms will be shut down to allow for the tile in the steam room and locker floor areas to be repaired beginning Tuesday, October 30th and lasting for a period of two days. The locker room will not be accessible during these two days from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm. The steam room will be fully shut down all day and overnight on Tuesday, October 30th to allow for the tile grout to properly cure.
East: Men’s Change Rooms
Tile repair work is scheduled to begin Monday, October 29th in the East men’s change rooms lasting approximately two days. During this time one section near the steam room will be sectioned off to complete the work, but the remainder of the facility will be open to members.
We thank you for your continued support of the YMCA of Regina!
