The City of Edmonton offers drop-in swim training/stroke improvement classes coached by qualified swim coaches that will help you improve your swimming skills, speed and endurance. (Note: These programs are not ETC programs and this information is displayed on the ETC website only to assist triathletes in finding stroke improvement/swim training times at various City pools.)
NOTE: With your membership in the Edmonton Triathlon Club, you can purchase a 20% discounted annual, or continuous monthly, pass to City of Edmonton sports facilities. Passes must be purchased at the Kinsmen Sports Centre.
Important Note: Drop-in swim training times, locations and coaches are subject to change!
Check the City of Edmonton website for updated leisure centre swim schedules, or call 311 to confirm.
