To keep the public and our staff as safe as possible and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at Leisure Centres, drop-in programs are offered in timed sessions due to capacity limits and to allow for necessary physical distancing. Sessions include admission and exit times and there are breaks between sessions to allow for the cleaning and sanitization of common areas.  

Book Your Visit 

Book your Leisure Centre visit up to 2 days in advance by visiting Leisure Online and selecting the ‘Book a Visit’ option, or by calling 306-975-2855 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., daily.

Pre-booking is available up to 2 days in advance. New sessions open for booking at 9:00 a.m. each day.  Sessions shown in red are either full or are not yet available for booking. 

Since there is a high demand for some programs, please call any Leisure Centre to cancel if you are unable to attend your booking.  

There are a limited number of walk-in spots available for each drop-in program, but please keep in mind there may be line-ups so pre-booking is encouraged. Pre-booked spots will be held for 15 minutes from the start of the session. If the spot is still unclaimed after 15 minutes, the pre-booked spot will be given to a walk-in patron.  To accommodate public health orders for class size, walk-in spots are not available for some programs.
