Unguarded Swims

Like many other places in Alberta, the Banff Centre has not yet been able to recruit lifeguards, so this partial reopening will be limited to unguarded swims for:

  • Members
  • Day Pass holders
  • Hotel guests staying at Banff Centre

During this initial, limited re-opening, public swim will not be available. Non-members will need to buy a Day Pass or a Fitness Membership to access the pool.

Youth Aquatics Program

Banff’s Youth Aquatic Leadership Program

This program provides those between the ages of 16 and 25 funding to obtain the necessary certifications to become a lifeguard, from first aid and Bronze Star to National Lifeguard. Those certified will then have a chance to interview with the Town of Banff and if hired, receive a $500 honorarium. 

The application period for 2023 has now closed.
