Payment Options:
Participants can pay for casual swimming on a per use basis at the pool or by purchasing a yearly swim pass which runs from January 1st to December 31st and includes both the indoor and outdoor pools. These passes can be purchased at the Recreation office. To get the most bang for your buck, we recommend purchasing the pool passes early in the year.

How do I register for Swimming:
Registration takes place 4 times per year: In the fall, winter, spring and summer with the dates being advertised in the local newspaper and on the city website at www.miramichi.org. Class size is limited and the initial registration is done on a first come first served basis. After that, participants can register at the Recreation Office. A maximum of 4 participants per person may be registered.

Refunds:
Please note that due to the limited space in the instructional swim programs; refunds can only be made up to the third class. Refunds are done through the Recreation Office and will be reduced by a $5 administration fee.

Weather Cancellations:
Fall, Winter and Spring Sessions
The instructional swim classes are once a week for 10 weeks so we do incur bad weather or in rare cases, unforeseen maintenance problems. The Recreation Department now has a dedicated phone line on which we will announce closure of our facilities. In inclement weather, the number to call is 623-2333 if you are unsure whether your event will be happening. Cancellations will also be announced on the radio. We will make every effort to replace cancellations of instructional swim classes but due to time constraints, this is not always possible.

Summer Sessions
Cancellation of instructional swim classes during the summer months will not be made up due to time constraints. Classes are cancelled only in the event of lightning.

Pool Rentals:
Rentals are available from September to May at the Golden Hawk and MVHS Pools on Saturday and Sunday from either 4:00-5:00 pm or 5:00-6:00 pm. One hour is allotted afterward in the birthday room (Golden Hawk) or the classroom (MVHS) where you can feel free to bring your cake, pizza or other easy to prepare items to finish off your party.
Rental fee – $90.00
Please call our office at 623-2300 to reserve. Be sure to call plenty of time ahead as these rentals are very popular for birthday parties and book up fast.
