The general public won't be able to take swimming lessons at St. Clair College starting this fall. 

After August 31, only students and staff will be able to go for a swim. 

"Our growth here with our enrolment has increased significantly," said Jeff McEwan, manager of recreational services for the college. "We wanted to better service our students."

In order to do that, McEwan said they would not be able to have as many community programs. 

Programming will be available for staff and students, including swimming lessons and recreational swims. 

According to McEwan, registration in the programs varied from session to session. 

"The fall was always a large number," said McEwan. "Several hundred [participants] every semester."

The partnership in place with the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre remains in place for St. Clair College students based on downtown campuses.
