Class Cancellations

Big Hill Leisure Pool reserves the right to cancel classes because of low registration.

Informed Consent

Big Hill Leisure Pool requires all program participants to sign an informed consent form. Forms are available at the time of registration. If you register by phone, parents or swimmers must visit the front desk before the class starts to sign the form. Individuals will not be allowed to participate in the program until the consent form has been signed. Consent forms are valid for one calendar year (July 1 - June 30).

Pool Lockers

Token-operated lockers are available in the change rooms. A one-time-use token can be purchased at the front desk, upon entry, for 50 cents. The token system allows patrons to pay for use of lockers at the same time as paying admission. This means there is no need for change and lockers can be paid for on debit or credit cards. A number of lockers are available for day use.
