As difficult as it may be, it's never too early to start thinking about life after summer.

Work and school schedules begin to ramp up in September, and some may be looking at public recreational and arts classes for their families to pass the time.

Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody will soon give residents the chance to plan ahead by opening up registration for fall programming.

Each community is set to offer a variety of pre-registration and drop-in programming for all ages; from day camps, swimming and skating lessons to art classes, yoga and seniors activities.


Coquitlam residents will get a sneak peek at local swimming and skating lessons tomorrow (July 21), and Aug. 14 for general recreation, fitness and park programs.

Registration will officially open July 26 and Aug. 16 at 8:30 a.m. respectively.

Coquitlam community recreation manager Judy Hamanishi said residents lookng to sign up for swimming and skating are reminded that they can only apply for one set at a time.

"Registration for the next set of lessons can be done on the last day of the current set," she explained in a statement.

"Participants who are registered in more than one lesson set or in future lesson sets prior to current completion will be withdrawn from a program."

Coquitlam residents can apply any time online once registration goes live. You can also call 604-927-4386 weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and weekends 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
