Big response after Regina opens registration for fall recreation programs

Registration for City of Regina fall recreation programs opened on Tuesday.

While non-residents had to wait until Thursday, about five thousand people signed up before noon on opening day, filling some of the programs.

City spokesperson Melissa Coderre said while some lessons are full, there are still some swimming programs still available.

“Especially because we’re registering for swimming both in September and in mid-November,” she stated. “If you aren’t getting in for your September lessons, make sure you’re looking into it and seeing if you can sign up for mid-November.”

New programs are being offered to the public this time around including a swimming program for adults.

Coderre explained how the program is considered as “swimming 101” for adults who have never taken swimming lessons in the past. It’s an opportunity for people who are looking to gain skills or can be more comfortable swimming with their children or grandchildren.

Many other programs are available for older residents, too. Coderre said it’s a chance for people to keep their aging bodies moving.

“While we continue to offer our chair yoga programs, older body yoga programs, we’re also adding Nordic pole walking,” mentioned Coderre. “Come on out and give it a try to stay active as you age.”

She expects about 36,000 people will be registering for fall recreation programs in Regina.
