Starting on September 8 we are going to be entering Stage 4 of our Re-Opening Plan. This is going to go hand in hand with Fall Registration, and there is a lot of information you need to know, so please read to the end.
Before we get started, here is what’s NOT changing.
In Stage 4 we are bringing back Memberships. We are still operating under restrictions and are unable to provide members with regular programming and schedules. Therefore, all membership's will be at a reduced price.
Because the prices are changing, and because not everyone will be ready to return to an active membership in September, we will be starting over. All memberships will have their remaining value, prorated from when we shut down in March, credited back to the members MyRec account.
This process will be starting Wednesday, August 19, and running until it is done. This will NOT impact or interrupt your ability to book activities online.
On September 1, COVID Memberships will come to an end. Between September 1 – September 8 (when we start selling memberships, see below) no one will have an active membership.
Because everyone loses their COVID membership September 1, we will be providing a booking discount for everyone from September 1 – September 20. During this time, you will only be able to book 5 days in advance. This will run to September 20 to allow for some overlap with the restart of memberships.
Starting September 8, you will be able to purchase new memberships. We will only be selling one-month memberships, with the ability to purchase as far out as two months. We want to avoid selling anything too far in advance with so much uncertainty around COVID-19. You will be able to use the credit on your MyRec account to purchase the new memberships.
The price of the memberships reflects the services we can offer. We do not have a date on when our memberships will return to our normal pricing, or when our activities and programs will return to a pre-COVID schedule. It depends entirely on the course of the pandemic and the restrictions in place by the Province.
NOTE: Families with a Family Membership who wish to continue to book online will still need to use separate emails that are linked to the primary account. Instructions on how to do this are available on our website under our COVID-19 section.
FAMILY MEMBERSHIP: $70/ month
INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP: $50/month
All prices are tax included. There will be no corporate membership for the time being. Punch passes and day passes will be not be accepted at this time.
Memberships will not be sold online, you must come in person to the facility to purchase them. Starting on September 8 at 6 a.m., memberships can be purchased at the Welcome Desk for two months in advance.
