Stay active this summer! City of Kitchener program registration, including swimming lessons, city-run programs and neighbourhood association programs, opens on Tuesday, June 11 at 8:30 a.m.

Check out the program offerings in advance. With recreation, sports, and swim programs for all ages and abilities, there is something for everyone! Active Kitchener is your complete guide to all summer activities and swim programs the City of Kitchener offers. It will be delivered to homes this week, or a downloadable version is available online at Print copies will also be available at community centres, pools, or city hall.

Build your confidence at the pool this summer with swimming lessons at indoor and outdoor pools, whether it’s once a week or daily lessons. Each of our pools offers the City of Kitchener’s own Learn to Swim program with options for all ages and skill levels. It’s never too early, or too late, to get started. Know your child’s most recent swim level before you register for swimming lessons. Residents are encouraged to contact their local pool with any questions before registration day.

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, June 11 starting at 8:30 a.m. Learn more at
