The Elm Park Recreation Association organizes a diverse number of programs throughout the summer:

  • Swim Lessons. Elm Park Pool uses the Pointe Claire Olympic Way lesson levels to teach our children to swim. Swimming lessons are available for all levels of swimmers including adults (Masters).

  • Swim Team. The Elm Park Pool swim team is a fantastic way to get involved with the pool and stay in shape throughout the summer. The fun filled program offers 5 day/week practices to beginners through to expert level swimmers. Practices include technique as well as endurance training for ages 7 and up (this is a suggested age). Competitions are held once a week, and all levels of swimmers are encouraged to participate.

  • Diving. The program offers a broad range of activities from lessons to competitive events. With practices held once to three times a week and weekly competitions for the team, Elm Park Pool’s diving program is sure to spark an interest in many pool members. Check the pool for the practice and competition schedule. [More]
  • Synchro. Our synchro program offers a wide range of lessons and team events. Girls are placed on teams (competitive and non-competitive) based on age and skill level, and they are taught the necessary techniques and a short routine to popular music. Competitive teams participate in up to two competitions near the end of the summer. This is a great way for the girls to acquire greater flexibility and strength, and to develop their team spirit. Check the pool for the practice and competition schedule. [More]
  • Water polo. With a basic swimming background as the only pre-requisite, all ages are welcome to join in the fun of participating in Elm Park Pool’s growing water polo teams. With 12 and under, 14 and under as well as 16 and under teams, everyone can benefit from the twice weekly practices and all participants are encouraged to join in the weekly competitions. Check the pool for the practice and competition schedule. [More]
  • Leaders and Junior Leaders. Elm Park Pool’s leaders (ages 13-16) and junior leaders (ages 10-12) programs are perfect for kids looking to get more involved in supporting the pool and its activities and to have lots of fun in the process! Fundraisers, various activities and taking on new responsibilities are all a part of this program. [More]

  • Yoga. Our member Isabel Kafesdjian will be offering Yoga classes this summer to our members. Isabel has been practicing yoga for over 16 years and since last October, she’s been immersed in her 200-hr yoga teacher training and will graduate just in time for the pool opening!  She decided to become a certified teacher because she wants to share her passion and the joy of yoga with others.  Being one of our members herself at Elm pool for years now, she’ll offer outdoor yoga classes. She’s passionate about empowering and inspiring people with transformational yoga to live more vibrant, healthy lives in mind, body and spirit, one pose and one breath at a time.  Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned yogi, join us this summer and benefit from all that yoga has to offer!
