March 17 Update: The pool and hot tub will be closed from Wednesday March 22 at 8pm to Friday, March 24 at 9:30pm, reopening Saturday, March 25 at 10am. Waves will be running starting at 12pm. The closure is due to repairing a deficiency from the pool renovation. Please note that shower temperatures may be cooler on Thursday after 4pm due to filling the pool. Steam rooms remain open. As a result of the closure all pool activities will be cancelled.
Until March 22 (see above) there will be no waves in the pool. In the meantime, get 50% off WAVE swim times - see schedule to verify wave swim times.

Splishin' and a-splashin': Trico Centre comes alive on Fridays with Tween Swim Night


CALGARY (Todd Kimberley, December 4, 2013) — Now that winter has arrived, there’s an entirely different context to staying cool in the pool.

Trico Centre, south Calgary’s recreational hub for the past 30 years, is committed to promoting active, healthy living for all ages. And as part of Trico Centre’s commitment to providing youths a “go-to” spot for fun and recreation, the aquatics centre comes alive every Friday with Tween Swim Night.

Since the concept was launched in March 2013, tweens aged 10 and up have congregated weekly in the Trico Centre pool with Super Soakers and pool toys from 7 to 9 p.m. for an evening of music and fun at a nominal entry fee of $5 for individuals from 10-17 years old.

“Tween Swim Night gives tweens a safe, fun, supervised place to hang out, be active, and let loose,” says Trico Centre Aquatics Supervisor Leslie Schreiber. “Our staff are thrilled to see the positive turnout and positive interaction. It’s an upbeat, energetic night to enjoy and look forward to, instead of staying at home and watching TV.”

Once a month, Tween Swim Night is held with special themed activities, prizes, costumes and tons of fun that heighten the excitement. Previous themes have included the Amazing (Trico) Race, Hawaiian Night, and School’s Out for Summer.

“Tween Swim Night is an initiative that fits into Trico Centre’s mandate to provide wellness and fun activities for every member of the family,” says Trico Centre Program Director Miriam Crook. “We’ve had such a positive reception to the Tween Swim Night concept. Everyone from basketball teams to youth groups have come out for a good time.

“And one family has told us that their two girls, aged 10 and 13, ‘live for Fridays so that they can come to Tween Night.’ ”

As part of its commitment to the concept of healthy families, Trico Centre ensures that every family member — including tweens — is offered engaging programming with added scheduling convenience.
As an example, the FUNSports program, a multi-sport physical literacy program giving youths the confidence encouragement to become active for life, was purposely offered this past fall — and is being offered again as part of winter programming, starting in mid-January — just prior to Tween Swim Night on Fridays.

“We’ve offered that FUNSports class to pre-teens on Friday nights so they could go swimming on Tween Night directly afterwards,” says Michelle Paradis, Child and Youth Program Co-ordinator at Trico Centre. “We want families to be able to co-ordinate their schedules so that they know that every family member has a place and an activity here at Trico Centre.”
