Located in Pierre Laporte High School, the pool of the same name is open to Townies and non-residents for public swim and various aquatic programs.

Spring 2020 session cancelled

Due to the disruptions already incurred and to be anticipated during the collective efforts to fight the pandemic, the Spring 2020 session at Pierre Laporte pool is cancelled.

Although registered users will be reimbursed, due to our services currently operating at reduced capacity, it is impossible to determine the time frame for reimbursement.

If you have any questions, please contact the Recreation Department by email at rec-mt-royal@ville.mont-royal.qc.ca.

Do you enjoy swimming?

Choose a season pass. See the Recreation brochure for the current fees. Alternatively, users can pay by the visit.

To ensure the smooth running of swimming activities and to avoid unfortunate incidents, all users must comply with the pool rules.

Improve your swimming ability with private lessons

Offered only to Mount Royal residents, private lessons are designed to help children who are more comfortable outside a group or who may want to improve specific swimming abilities. We offer a package of 10 lessons for the fall session, and 8 lessons for the winter and spring sessions respectively.

For more information, please contact Andréane Bastien, Aquatic Supervisor, by phone at 514 734-2932 or email at andreane.bastien@town.mount-royal.qc.ca. You must register online for the private lessons.

Programs for every taste

From learn-to-swim courses for small children to aquafitness to a lifeguard course, you are sure to find an activity that will please each member of the family. Learn about the aquatic programs on offer.

Red Cross swim program

The Town reserves the right to refuse a registration if it is felt that the basic requirements are not met or that the child is not in a level corresponding to his or her abilities and there is no room in the appropriate level.

  • Preschool Swim: age 4 months to 6 years 
  • Junior Swim: age 5 to 12 
  • Teen Swim: age 10 to 17

Important information

You may register for only one Red Cross Swim lesson at a time. The Town reserves the right to cancel a second registration for the same session, without warning.

A child may register for a second lesson and level in the same year under the following conditions:

  • If space permits
  • The child has completed and passed the preceding level.
  • The Town reserves the right to combine or cancel classes if registration is too low.

During lessons, parents are asked to remain in the mezzanine of the Pierre Laporte Pool or in the wading pool enclosure at the municipal pool.

Not sure what level your child should be in?

Come to our swim lesson skill assessment on Sunday, March 8, 2020, under the supervision of certified instructors. Contact Andréane Bastien, Aquatic Supervisor (andreane.bastien@town.mount-royal.qc.ca) to make an appointment (mandatory).

Also have a look at the Parent Pool Guide.

Swimming and diving

The Town of Mount Royal Piranhas Team encourages you to sign up for the swimming, diving and water polo training program offered during the school year at the Pierre Laporte Pool.

It is the perfect way to get in the kind of shape needed to shine in the competitions held at the municipal during the summer.
