Kid-Friendly Vancouver: Tips for Swimming Lesson Registration
1. Make Sure You Know What Time Registration Opens
It’s not enough to know the day that registration opens for the highest-competition swimming lesson spaces. You need to know the time, because some classes fill up in a matter of minutes or hours.
2. Familiarize Yourself With the Process
Visit the course registration page before you register, and get the feel for what it looks like. Choose an age group and a course to see the registration page. Have your login ID and password ready – and if you don’t have one or you need to reset your password, visit bit.ly/ParkBoardAcct. If you have questions about any of this, you can call 3-1-1.
3. Choose Your Classes
Make sure you have all the information on the classes you’ll be signing up for, as well as any back-up classes in case you don’t get your first choice. Double-check age requirements, and make sure your children have completed any classes that are required for the levels you’re looking at.
4. Stay in the Loop on Social Media
