Online registration for city of Coquitlam winter programs opens today (Jan. 14).
And residents are encouraged to see what recreation options are available to keep up with their new year’s resolutions for getting in shape and learn new skills.
For little ones, the Pinetree and Poirier community centres have Time for Tots on Wednesday and Friday mornings.
And for kids under 12, the city is offering dance, guitar and rhythm and percussion classes plus soccer, basketball and ball hockey.
Science, board game building and nature exploration are also available after school and on the weekends for children.
Youth can also join beginners’ badminton and tennis lessons as well as hip hop, drama, drawing and mixed media classes while teens — ages 13 to 15 — can also drop into a fitness centre for an orientation of the weight room.
Entrepreneurship 101 and Girls' Night In are new programs for the municipality, which will start in February.
And for adults, there’s plenty of fun and fitness including ukulele and guitar classes, visual arts including digital photography, language lessons and sports like pickleball and badminton, for beginner and intermediate levels.
In addition, there are many virtual classes for Coquitlam residents who want to stay at home during the global pandemic.
Masks are required when travelling through all indoor civic facilities; however, a mask isn’t needed during a fitness activity.
To check if a program is cancelled due to the provincial health orders, call 604-927-4386.
