As of March 17, all Maple Ridge Leisure Centre memberships were frozen due to COVID-19. Membership pass holders have the option to unfreeze or continue to freeze their account. Members can choose what registration method works best for them – either pay-as-you-go or using their membership. Be aware that if you have chosen to unfreeze your account, you cannot refreeze it.
To ensure the safety of patrons, staff and our community registration for the gymnasium is mandatory. Registration allows us to track who is in our building and when and to ensure maximum participation numbers are monitored. Controlling the access to a building/facility is a recommendation of the Provincial Health Officer and Worksafe BC.
New practices and procedures were created to ensure the safety of our patrons, community and staff. Some of the measures include:
In addition to the measures taken above, there is increased COVID-19 related signage in the facility to ensure that all gym users are informed on signs, symptoms and risks of using the facility during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please come prepared to use the gymnasium. We ask that you bring minimal items with you and your own equipment for the designated timeslot. There will be no access to lockers or cubbies. If you need to bring a bag, keep it small.
Customers should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to their registered Gymnasium timeslot. Please wait on the designated physical distancing markers outside of the main entrance doors. A staff will welcome you into the facility at your designated time. As you enter the facility you will be reminded to sanitize and wash your hands frequently.
Parks, Recreation & Culture staff are following the viaSport Activity Chart and gradually implementing gymnasium activities/sports that have completed the Return to Sport Guidelines. The Activity Chart outlines what types of activities that can be considered for facilities as we transition through the various return stages.
To help mitigate the transmission of COVID-19, we are eliminating and/or reducing equipment in gymnasium activities. Equipment that is provided are larger items (pickleball nets, badminton poles, etc.) that are not easy for patrons to transport.
If you arrive to your gymnasium activity timeslot and have not brought equipment with you please speak with a Fitness Centre Supervisor. We can arrange to lend patrons equipment for the activity.

If you notice another gymnasium user who is not following physical distancing rules or who may be displaying symptoms of COVID-19, please notify a Fitness Centre Supervisor or a Customer Experience staff.
If a patron is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, staff will ask that they do not enter the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre and self-isolate for the recommended 14 days. A note will be made on the users account and they will be unable to register for any Fitness Centre timeslots until their self-isolation is over.
