During February and March Dickson Aquatic Centre is host 29 to school swimming carnivals.  See the weekly timetable below.

At certain times lap swimming is unavailable. We have maximised the shared use of the facility where ever possible, however there are times during this period when we simply cannot provide a safe environment for both the school children and the public.

We appreciate your patience while we provide the opportunity to school children in ACT and the surrounding region to participate in their school swimming carnival.
