Swimming Lesson Registration Enhancement!

Recreation Services is making an adjustment to the registration practice in response to resident feedback about the challenges faced when registering for high-demand swim lessons. The change is designed to provide more equitable access to all residents so as many people as possible have the opportunity to register into a swim lesson.

What’s Changed

Coming this Fall, the registration system will enforce level prerequisites so residents can only register for levels they are qualified to register into.

This change will prevent single individuals from registering into multiple levels at once, which will result in a higher variety of residents successfully registering for a lesson.
