Great job everyone, lets get back on the saddle for next week’s meet at PPK!
Friday night events, July 6
We have two great events coming up on Friday night!
- The Summer Mingler! Adults, join us near the BBQ to chat & get to know one another. BYOB and a small snack (appetizer or dessert) to share. Your kids can enjoy the pool while you socialize.
- Movie Night! We’ll be showing JUMANJI 2 at 8pm. All are welcome! Popcorn is 2$ and the canteen will be open for snacks.
We hope to see you there!
Swim Meet #1 blowout
On Wednesday, July 4, we hosted our first swim meet of 2018 in B by welcoming Côte St-Luc.
Unfortunately, the heat and travel distance put off many of the swimmers for CSL and they did not have many swimmers at the meet. The results were therefore one sided in what was a very quick meet (2h09m) with ECC winning 605 to 161.
Well done to our swimmers and thanks to all the volunteers for coming out and helping us run a smooth meet.
Lets keep it up and stay cool until next Wednesday!

New to the neighbourhood: what is ECC all about?
We’re an outdoor community pool located in Ecclestone Park in the north-east Lacey Green sector of Kirkland, surrounded by sports fields and green space. Open rain or shine from mid-June to the end of August, our friendly pool caters to everyone from toddlers in the baby pool; teens and children in the diving-end and adults who want to swim laps in the big pool.
Your membership opens the door wide-open to summer-long activities. We offer Olympic-Way swimming lessons for all ages, from introduction-to-water to Bronze Cross and Medallion lifesaving classes.
Ecclestone Pool also participates in four team events with other summer pools in the North-Shore Athletic Association (NAA): Diving, swimming, synchronized swimming and water polo. Team members can be as young as 6 years-old up to 16 years-old. The teams have regular meets and compete against other pools in the NAA.
If team sports are not your thing, we also host fun social events that make for lasting summer memories. For kids, Halloween in July, movie night and a just for fun mini-triathlon. For families, bingo and cook-outs. For adults, adults-only party and lAquafit.
Ecclestone Pool is Kirkland’s only swimming pool and is run by a volunteer committee comprised of members. Anyone can join. Our membership rates are less expensive than signing up for all our activities individually at an indoor pool. Ecclestone Pool is a fun and safe place to hang-out for the summer. Plus, your kids won’t be in front of screens!
