Drop-ins, Registration & Refunds

Register online or speak with a representative in our call-centre, we've got you covered.

Program Registration 

You can browse programs and register in our registration system. You will need an online account to register, if you do not already have an account, set up your account today.

Please note, you cannot register until after registration opens (see dates below). We recommend noting down your Course IDs, ready for registration day. You are also able to log-in to your account to check your details are correct.

Change of process for securing spots

During winter registration (see dates below), spots in programs will only be confirmed once the spot has been paid for, this is due to a change in software functionality. Spots will be confirmed on a first-come-first-served basis according to when payment is made. 

As a result, we recommend processing each registration individually to speed up your transaction, particularly for high-demand courses.

If you add multiple courses to your cart and then check out, the spots are only confirmed once you have paid for all the courses. If another customer checks out before you in one of the courses, you may lose your spot.

NVRC staff are working with the software provider on options to allow multiple registrations with the option to ‘hold’ spots while processing the transaction, for future registrations.

Drop-in Programs

Many of our most popular sessions, such as swimming and skating, are now drop-in only. You will no longer need to pre-book or pay in advance. View our drop-in schedules.

Can’t make your pre-booked visit?

Please remember to cancel so others can sign up for the spot.

We know plans can change. So if you are unable to attend your pre-booked visits for fitness centres, fitness classes, swimming and skating, we ask that you please cancel online (watch our how-to video), by email or by calling 604-987-7529, as soon as you know you can’t attend.  This will free up your spot for others who want to get active.
Recently, we have seen an increase in customers not showing up for their visit. If everyone is considerate and cancels their unwanted visits, we can serve more people and there will be more space for you when you want to book!
Thanks for your help in ensuring everyone can stay active!
