MESSAGE FROM THE comox valley regional district

For those who like a class led by one of our enthusiastic staff members, there are over 20 weekly water fitness classes to choose from and a coached swim fit class five times a week. There are skating and swimming sessions designed for families and super saver sessions that have a regular youth following. Adults can enjoy an aquatic centre “swim and slide” on their own twice a week and those 16 and over have two nights just for them. Whether you are looking for a drop-in session or are ready to commit to a registered program on the ice or in the pool and wellness centre, this guide is sure to have an option that is right for you.

As the winter months set in, the inclement weather often makes outdoor exercise a challenge which means more indoor activities. The sports and aquatic centres offer an array of flexible, drop-in sessions and registered programs for all ages and abilities.

A sport for all seasons, ice skating is a great way to get exercise, meet people and have fun. To learn the basics of skating, it is important to start out on the right “foot� by taking a few lessons.
