To participate, simply show your current UBC staff ID card at the front desk. All participants using the length swim lanes must use the lanes for active exercise, and abide by the slow, medium, and fast lanes signs. This Drop-In Staff & Faculty swim is offered in the Competition Pool.

For ages 8+. Come test your aquatic racing skills on our inflatable obstacle course! Most often set up on Saturday and Sunday afternoons (pending availability), please check the drop-in calendar for available times. The Wibit is set up in the competition pool area which is located in deep water. For safety reasons, all participants wanting to race will need to complete a swim test.

Length Swim is for lap swim only and open to the general public. All public participants must use these lanes for active exercise and abide by the slow, medium, and fast lanes signs. The facility rules for children 7 and under still apply – see the Public Swim tab for more details.

Members Only Training Time is length swims in the competition pool alongside our High Performance teams. Most often it is in the early morning weekdays, check the drop-in calendar for available times. During this time the competition pool is a high performance environment so we ask all members who are participating in this program to use the lanes for swim training purposes only. No slow/medium lanes or water running space is available. Please check in with the front desk prior to entering the pool to receive a training program wristband.
