Seasonal lane allocation at Collingwood Leisure Centre

Thursday 13 September 2018

As of 1 October 2018, the lane allocation for Aqua group exercise classes and Open Age Squad sessions at Collingwood Leisure Centre will be adjusted for the peak season.

Aqua group fitness classes

As of Monday 1 October, the lane allocation for Aqua group exercise classes will be adjusted for the peak season. The changes are based on our lane allocation policy.

Seasonal changes to lane allocation apply to the 9.15am classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. These will return to an allocation of 5 lanes and a capacity of 42 participants.

All other Aqua group exercise allocations are per existing arrangements.

Open Age Squad sessions

As of Monday 8 October, there will be some changes to the lane allocation for Open Age Squad sessions. An additional lane will be programmed to meet the growing demand for young people in Yarra to participate in healthy activities beyond our Learn to Swim program.

Changes to lane allocation apply at the following times during the school term:

  • Mondays from 4.30pm to 6.30pm
  • Thursdays from 4.45pm to 5.45pm.

Swimming programs will be allocated 5 lanes. All other program allocations are per existing arrangements. 

Lap swimmers

For lap swimmers, our weekly published lane availability will reflect these seasonal changes to aqua group exercise. Visit our weekly lane availability schedule.

Unless the Duty Manager determines a substantial operational matter requires addressing on the day, it is intended that these lane allocations are fixed.

We appreciate the cooperation of all pool users while we implement the changes. We ask all pool users keep a safe and respectful distance from other activities.
