January 8, 2021 Provincial health order update
Health orders are currently in place until February 5 restricting adult team-based sports. This impacts both City leagues and register and play sports. Refunds for any cancelled classes as a result of the order impacts will be automatically credited to registrants accounts. Please contact 250-469-8800 if you would prefer a refund over credits. Please note these are single class cancellations, not a cancellation of the entire course at this time.
The following program types are postponed until February 5, 2021:
- Basketball (includes women's league and register and play with the exception of basketball programs for youth 21 and under)
- Floor hockey
- Ice hockey
- Indoor soccer
- Table tennis
- Volleyball (league play, register and play, and seniors volleyball)
The following program types have been adapted to align with the latest health order to allow for singles play only:

All participants of adult sport programs are required to read, understand and uphold the following guidelines.
Do not attend a sport program if:

- You have been out of the country within the last 14 days.
If you begin to feel ill during your sports program:

City recreation facilities required participants to wear masks in public-access areas. This includes common areas such as lobbies, change rooms, washrooms, hallways and spectator areas.
