Spring session has begun

Our Spring session began on Tue. Apr. 7, including swim lessons.

Why is Spring a great session for lessons? It prepares you and your kids with strong swim skills so you're ready for the busy summer holiday season of boating, cottages, beaches and swimming pools.

Why take lessons at Dovercourt? Our pool is warm & inviting, and our staff is not only enthusiastic, they are the most highly trained in the city.
