Live in PoCo? Sign up Early for Swimming Lessons

Port Coquitlam residents will get a three-day head start on their fall aquatics registrations, thanks to a new city pilot program.

Residents can start registering for winter swimming lessons, programs and workshops on November 13. The usual start date for winter registration, November 16, will remain in place for non-residents and all other programs.

Registration for spring 2020 swimming lessons:

PoCo residents: starts February 19                General public: starts February 22

Proof of residency will be required.

How Priority Registration Works

  • The pilot program applies to spring 2020 swimming lesson registration only. Registration for all other aquatic and recreation programs for both residents and non-residents will take place on the usual date, February 22
  • Port Coquitlam residents can begin registering for 2020 swimming lessons on February 19 – at 12:01 a.m. for those registering online, and during regular facility hours for those registering by phone (604.927.7529) or at a facility in person.
  • Customers will need to provide their home address and postal code to verify they are residents of Port Coquitlam. Online registrations will be verified by Active Net account and by postal code and address combination.
  • Please note: Anyone falsely claiming to be a Port Coquitlam resident during the priority registration period will be removed from the class – even if the classes have begun.
