Welcome to Coquitlam

Parks, Recreation & Culture Services

SIGNMEUP ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM We’re excited to reveal our new online registration system! As you work your way through this guide, circling or screenshotting your top choices, you’ll be pleased to know that our new booking system will make your registrations easier than ever before. First of all, signing in will be quicker (no need to remember your Client ID or Family PIN number), just use your email address and password to login. Second, the new user-friendly software makes it possible to search for programs by facility, days of the week, age group or activity. It’s also mobile-friendly, so you can register for programs from your phone—and then save your activities into your electronic calendar. Visit coquitlam.ca/registration to find out more.

NEW AND IMPROVED FACILITIES As our community grows, so do our recreation facility offerings. We have three exciting projects in the works! ´ We’re building a new Place Maillardville Community Centre, which will be twice the size of our existing aging building. The new facility will feature a full-sized gymnasium, a teaching kitchen, more programs for all ages and plenty of multi-purpose spaces. Please note that the existing Centre will operate as usual until the new building opens (likely early 2022). Visit coquitlam.ca/placemaillardville to learn more. ´ Planning is underway for a new multi-use recreation centre in the Burke Mountain Village neighbourhood, which we aim to open by 2026. Watch for consultations involving the Northeast Community Centre. We look forward to hearing your feedback! Go to coquitlam.ca/nerec to find out more. ´ We’re working with the YMCA of Greater Vancouver and Concert Properties on a new YMCA Community Centre for Cottonwood Park in Burquitlam. It will include a 55,000-square-foot facility with an indoor pool, gym, fitness studio, multipurpose space and other amenities. But that’s not all! Visit coquitlam.ca/ymca for full details.

Coquitlam has programs, events and activities for residents of all ages and abilities. Take your dog for a run in an off-leash park, catch a tournament at Town Centre Park or enjoy the fresh air on a hike through one of our many trails. Whether you’re into yoga, swimming, arts or hiking, there is always something new to learn or a new friend to meet through Coquitlam recreation. Now is the time to try it, learn it, live it!

Summer (July/August) Registration for ALL Programs (includes swimming, camps & everything else) Æ ONLINE at 6 a.m. Wednesday, April 8, 2020 Æ PHONE/IN-PERSON at 6 a.m. Thursday, April 9, 2020

Lesson Registration Information Ice skating program participants can only register in one lesson set at a time. You may register your child for the next lesson set only after the completion of the lesson set they are currently registered in. Your child may be withdrawn from a program(s) if registered in more than one lesson at a time.

NEW TO SKATING? Review these FAQs before you start. What level do I register for? We recommend all new participants begin in the introductory levels. If you have skating experience, we can do our best to fit you into the right level in one of two ways: 1. Skating Evaluation: Come during public skating and our staff will determine your level. 2. Show Past Progress Card: Show your past card and we will find the closest fit in our skating program.

What do I need to wear? • Waterproof pants, such as snow pants or rain pants and a warm jacket or sweatshirt. • Gloves or mittens, waterproof is best. • CSA approved helmet or snow sports helmet. Face cages are recommended for kids 7 and under. Bike helmets are not permitted. • Knee and elbow pads, worn under clothing, are optional. Wearing pads over clothes can make it slippery when trying to stand. • Skates should fit properly and be in good repair. Skate and helmet rentals are available at the skate shop. • Adjustable skates are not recommended.

Can I rent equipment? Look for special drop-in skates in the special events section on page 8!

Coquitlam Parks, Recreation & Culture 

Yes! Rentals are paid for at the front desk and picked up at the skate shop. Arrive early as there can often be a line at the front desk and skate shop counter. Helmets are included with all registered skate lessons. Course fees do not include applicable taxes. Details subject to change.
