Register online for Aquafit sessions

Online registration for most swim sessions are no longer required. Advanced online registration for Aquafit sessions are still available and highly recommended to secure a spot. A limited number of Aquafit drop-in spots are available in person, on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Registration opens three days in advance, and closes 30 minutes before the session starts. If you are unable to attend a session for which you have registered, you must cancel in advance by accessing your vanrec.ca account. 

Flexipasses and 10-visit passes are accepted for online registration.
