Registration opens on the date stated on the back of the guide. No early registration will be accepted. Payment is required at time of registration.

To use online registration you will need an account and a credit card. If you haven’t registered with us before, please contact your local recreation centre to set up your family’s account. You can access online registration at www.reccowichan.ca

Payment by cash, cheque, VISA, MasterCard, or debit card is accepted.

Registration Policies & Guidelines Uh-oh, we had to cancel:

Regrettably, if a minimum number of registrants is not met, we may have to cancel or combine classes due to insufficient registration. These decisions are made prior to the course start date. Please register early to avoid disappointment. A 100% refund is granted when we cancel a program. When a class has been cancelled due to instructor illness or weather conditions, a class will be added on at the end of the session. If this is not possible, you will be issued a refund in the amount of the missed class.

Oops, changed your plans?:

A refund will be issued if we receive applicable withdrawal notification. Programs and lessons require five (5) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. Camps and certification courses require seven (7) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. If appropriate notice is not given, no refund will be issued. There may be other exceptions to these guidelines. In some cases, these exceptions will be noted in the individual course description. To request a refund, please contact the facility that is offering your program. Taking COVID-19 into consideration, if the Province of British Columbia is in a declared State of Emergency, the notice of cancellation will be waived. All refunds are subject to a $5 processing fee.

Extended Illness / Injury and Missed Classes:

Please stay at home when you’re sick, even if symptoms are mild. In cases of extended illness or injury, a prorated refund may be granted upon provision of a medical note. Classes missed due to vacation, or other reasons will not be refunded.

Sorry, the course is full:

If a program is full, please ask staff to put your name on our waitlist. We will do our best to accommodate those waitlisted.

Customer Satisfaction:

We care about your experience in our programs. Please contact one of our Programmers directly to discuss any questions, comments, or concerns that you have with our recreation programs.

PHYSICAL LITERACY

PHYSICAL LITERACY

Physical literacy is the key to being

ACTIVE FOR LIFE What is Physical Literacy?

Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014) Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, they need to develop physical literacy at a young age. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.

What are Fundamental Movement Skills?

Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for an active life. This list contains 25 fundamental movement skills which children can learn:

9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

Balancing Catching Climbing Cycling Dodging Dribbling Hopping Jumping

Striking with an implement Striking with hand Swimming Throwing Trapping with an implement Trapping with feet/body Tumbling Walking

This symbol denotes Physical Literacy based programs that focus on the development and enhancement of FUNdamental Movement Skills. These essential building blocks instill confidence that comes from skill competence and provides motivation to maintain a life-long attachment to sport, recreation and physical activity. FALL

COVID-19 & Recreation The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) ability to deliver programs and services to its citizens. Many services were temporarily stopped or modified in response to COVID-19 to ensure the health and well-being of the community and staff. The CVRD has developed the COVID-19 Restoration of Programs and Services Plan to assist with the gradual process and decision making needed to restore services. This process will be guided by information and advice from health authorities, other levels of government, WorkSafeBC, and other stakeholder groups such as the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA), Lifesaving Society of BC, VIA Sport BC and provincial and national sport governing bodies. Our Community Services Department is focused on getting back to a “new normal” and restart our Recreation facilities to help you get back to being active, healthy and connected to your community in a safe manner. Additional precautions have been put in place to minimize risk, which includes facility safety plans and program guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all.

COVID-19 & Recreation The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) ability to deliver programs and services to its citizens. Many services were temporarily stopped or modified in response to COVID-19 to ensure the health and well-being of the community and staff. The CVRD has developed the COVID-19 Restoration of Programs and Services Plan to assist with the gradual process and decision making needed to restore services. This process will be guided by information and advice from health authorities, other levels of government, WorkSafeBC, and other stakeholder groups such as the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA), Lifesaving Society of BC, VIA Sport BC and provincial and national sport governing bodies. Our Community Services Department is focused on getting back to a “new normal” and restart our Recreation facilities to help you get back to being active, healthy and connected to your community in a safe manner. Additional precautions have been put in place to minimize risk, which includes facility safety plans and program guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all.
