Before you go, you should know:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements: Parents and caregivers are required to show proof of vaccination to participate in a recreation program with their child.
  • Having fun can be messy sometimes. We recommend not wearing new or expensive clothes to programs.
  • Indoor shoes are great for playing and running, they are much safer than sock feet.
  • Parented programs: Some preschool programs require parents or guardians to actively participate in the program. Review course tittles, or descriptions, for more information.
  • Child only programs: Preschoolers are required to be toilet trained and out of diapers.
  • Ice programs: CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory for everyone on the ice. This includes a full mask for participants under the age of 18.
