General

Constitution
Access to the Joyce Fromson Pool (25 meter lanes and a diving tank) is through the Frank Kennedy building at the University of Manitoba. Masters swimmers just need to inform the staff at the Equipment Desk that they are masters swimmers and they will be admitted to the locker rooms. You will need to supply your own lock. There is often parking available in the lot in front of the building. If not there are many other lots in the area. (Check the map at the University of Manitoba link above). New swimmers can join us at any practice
