General locker room protocol

  • Only children aged two and under accompanied by an adult are permitted in the locker rooms of the opposite sex.
  • No food, drink, gum or any type of glass container is permitted in the locker rooms, sports areas, or on the pool deck.
  • Cell phones and cameras may not be used in the locker rooms.
  • Users must wear shoes in the corridors and anywhere around the sports centre. Walking barefoot is not permitted.
  • Management is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Standard padlocks are recommended (can be purchased or rented at the reception desk). Padlocks left on lockers will be cut off at the end of the day.
  • Because of the presence of children and different clients, discretion is essential when using the locker room. A bath robe, underwear, bathing suit, or towel wrap is required.
  • Staff reserves the right to refuse access to or to expel any person who does not follow these rules and protocols, and whose behaviour puts the safety and well-being of users at risk.

Family locker rooms

  • Couples who are not accompanied by a child are asked to use the locker room designated for their sex.
