March 5 is registration day!

Plan to register early as programs can fill up quickly. Register online, in person (at a community centre, pool, or city hall service centre), or by calling your neighbourhood community centre or pool. If you’re registering online, you can set up your ActiveNet account before registration day. Add your favourite programs to your Wish List, and then simply add to your cart quickly and easily on registration day. Know your child’s most recent swim level before you register for swimming lessons.
