The swimming season will kick off on Monday, 1 November and run until Friday, 25 March. The pool will be open every day during this period except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Patrons will be able to purchase season ticket passes and enrol in swimming lesson programs and aqua aerobic classes via Council’s online portal, which can be found on Council’s website or by following this link: yassvalleycouncil.gymmasteronline.com/portal/login.

Payment is required in full when enrolling and pre-booking of classes will be required. Bookings will not be restricted and participants will be able to register for more than one session at a time.

The latest COVID-19 rules and restrictions will be shared on Council’s website and displayed at the pools closer to the opening.

“Council understands how much our community loves swimming at Yass and Binalong Pools and staff are working very hard to ensure our facilities can reopen under a COVID-19 safe plan during the summer months,” said Yass Valley Mayor Rowena Abbey.
