Why was this change made?

  • Because Aquatics is a skill-based program, not an age-based program (like Youth Sports, for example), staggered registration helps improve activity registration accuracy, in-water safety and programming equity for all participants.

When can I add activities in later sessions to my “Save for Later” list?

  • There is no change to the timeframe for adding activities to a “Save for Later” list. Participants may add activities from any visible session to their list; however, they must wait until the corresponding open registration date for that session to enroll.

Will this affect the waiting list procedure?

  • No. The waiting list procedure for individual activities will not change.
