Winnipeggers can get ready to plan their summer and keep their kids busy with the City's Summer Leisure Guide which is available now.
The City of Winnipeg’s Summer 2023 Leisure Guide Swimming brochure is now available for viewing online.
With swimming lessons being a crowd favourite, Winnipeg residents can register for lessons and other summer fun starting June 13 at 8 a.m., with non-Winnipeg resident registration opening on Thursday, June 15 at 8 a.m.
Registration can be completed:
- Online at City of Winnipeg - leisureONLINE
- By calling 311
- In person at our registration centre, Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex, 999 Sargent Ave., on June 13 only between 8 a.m. – noon.
- In-person at 395 Main St. and Accès–Access Saint-Boniface, 170 Goulet St. (French service available at both locations)
- In person at any City indoor pool during regular operating hours (French service available at Bonivital Pool and Margaret Grant Pool)
Those planning to register using leisureONLINE are encouraged to check that they are able to successfully log in to their online account BEFORE registration starts. Those experiencing difficulty accessing their account are advised to call 311. Video tutorials are available on how to create an account, how to add a family member, how to search for an activity, how to use the new wish list feature, how to register for an activity, and how to view activity completion status.
The new user-friendly mobile version of leisureONLINE allows easier access to browse and sign up for activities using a mobile device. The new wish list feature also allows users to add their favourite activities for easy access on registration day.
Don’t forget that swimming lessons have changed from the Canadian Red Cross to the Lifesaving Society’s Swim for Life program. To help residents, the city created a transition chart that shows which Swim for Life level to register for based on the previous Red Cross levels. Anyone registered for swimming lessons during the Fall 2022, Winter 2023, or Spring 2023 sessions will also see their Swim for Life level on their report card.
If still unsure which level to register for, please contact 311 or visit a local pool to arrange a skills assessment (public admission fees and entry requirements apply).
