Waiting Lists

If you cannot be accommodated in any of your selections, you are encouraged to add yourself to the waiting list for the program/s of your choice. Every effort is made to accommodate program wait lists by either adding additional classes or transferring you into another available program, where possible.


Transfers for swimming lessons will only be accepted prior to the second regularly scheduled class. There will be no penalty for transferring. Transfers for general programs can take place at any time, subject to availability.


When there are three or more children in the same family taking programs in the same program area, the third and subsequent children will be charged half price. Discounts will be taken off the lower priced programs. For first time online registrations, the discount will be processed after the registration and will be returned as a separate refund. This will happen automatically. For any subsequent online registrations within the same program area, the discount will calculate automatically at time of checkout. In person registration discounts will be processed immediately. Registrations for all children must take place within the same transaction.

We regret that this does not apply to some of our Aquatic Leadership Programs, Private/Semi-Private Lessons, Aquatic Integration, Special Events, or to Club Aurora Memberships or Specialty Programs.


Our best effort is made to provide you with the most accurate information at the time of printing, however, schedules are subject to change. We reserve the right to cancel, amend, change, postpone or combine classes/activities that are listed in this guide. For the most up to date activity schedule, please refer to your e-PLAY account.

Safe Arrival & Departure

Staff ask that parents/guardians walk their child(ren) into the program when dropping them off, and come into the room to pick them up. Please ensure the instructor is aware of your presence when you return to pick up your child. If your child is being picked up by someone else, please inform an instructor at the beginning of class.

Participant Behaviour

We want to create an environment of trust, safety and fun! Disrespectful or aggressive behaviour is not acceptable. If inappropriate behaviour occurs, a participant’s actions may lead to their removal.


Photographs/videos may be taken of your own family only. Permission to take photographs/videos must be granted by a Coordinator, Supervisor or program instructor prior to taking any photographs or videos. Additionally, some of our programs have a parent's day where families can take photographs/videos (of their own family). Underwater photography is not permitted.
