The Castlegar, Creston and Nelson Community Complexes will be offering increased hours of operation for their aquatic centres. The expanded hours of operation will begin at the Castlegar and District Community Complex on April 14 and at the Creston and Nelson Community Complexes on April 21.

“We are happy to announce, that we can now begin to offer increased hours of operation at our three main facilities,” said Craig Stanley, Regional Manager – Operations and Asset Management. “These increased hours of operation would not have been possible without the effort taken to promote and provide training opportunities within the RDCK region.”

Starting in early 2023, the RDCK began offering subsidized courses to support the continued growth and succession of lifeguards, swim instructors, fitness instructors and personal trainers.

“Staffing availability has significantly increased when the RDCK began offering free and subsidized training opportunities,” said Stanley. “With the increase in qualified staff, we are now able to offer increased hours of operation at our three main recreation facilities, with the potential of continued increases to come.”

You can find all pool, fitness centre and facility hours of operation on our website at rdck.ca/recreation.

Anybody who is interested in pursuing their lifeguard, swim instructor, fitness instructor or personal trainer certification can contact any of our RDCK facilities or visit rdck.ca/GetTraining for information about training opportunities.
