Quick Answer Guide

Question Answer

Why is showering mandatory before entering the pool?

It is a patron’s duty to help maintain better pool water quality and a healthier experience for all by showering before entering the water.  Dirt, perspiration, cosmetics, body oils, and traces of urine and fecal matter on the body all affect water quality.  

Chlorine is added to the water to fight off this organic matter.  When chlorine interacts with organic matter, trichloramines are formed and those trichloramines are what create the chlorine smell in the pool area.  A strong smell is an indicator that the chlorine is working hard to remove organic matter from the water.   High trichloramine levels are responsible for eye, throat, nose, lung and skin irritation. 

A pre-swim shower helps reduce the substances formed in the pool water when the organic matter found on swimmers combines with chlorine.  A clean, balanced pool will have very little chlorine smell. Wetting your hair and skin before entering the pool will also protect it and from becoming dry and damaged from the chlorine.

Can I wear a face mask?

Face masks are welcome in all areas except while using the pools and hot tubs.    

Do I need to pre-book a drop-in visit? A reservation is only required for select drop-in programs that have limited facility space or program equipment.  Drop-in program information including class times, locations and program reservations is available on Leisure Online.  Program reservations can be made online or by phoning the Leisure Centre that offers the program up to 2 days in advance. New programs open at 9:00 a.m. NOTE: You must be logged into your Leisure Online account to reserve a spot.  If you do not have a Leisure Online account, you can set one up at any time at Leisure Online.
Can I bring my own swim toys and personal floatation devices? Yes, however there are several restrictions. Mermaid tails require a swim test evaluation prior to being allowed, infant neck floats are not permitted, huge blow up toys may not be permitted depending on the swim time and capacity.
Are patrons able to choose the change room or washroom that aligns with their gender identity?

Yes. Patrons can choose the change room or washroom that aligns with their gender identity. The City of Saskatoon embraces diversity and ensures fair, respectful and inclusive treatment of all its residents. We understand that this is a divisive issue and makes some people uncomfortable. Gender identity is a protected right under the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code, 2018 – a provincial law. 

Part of recognizing people’s rights is allowing them to choose which change room or washroom they use based on their protected rights. 

If anyone is uncomfortable with our policy, the City will make private spaces available for their use.   

More information is available in the Gender Inclusive Change Rooms & Washrooms Frequently Asked Questions.

Are lockers available for use? Yes. You may bring your own lock or use one that requires a token.  Tokens are $0.50 each.
Are towels available? No, except for in first aid situations.
Is the water wheelchair available? The water wheelchair is available for use when needed and will be disinfected between patron use.
Are spectators permitted during public swimming? Yes. Spectators are welcome during public swim times.
