Registrations for Red Deer recreation programs delayed

Sign-up for sports and culture programs starts Jan. 12

The City of Red Deer is delaying registration for recreation and culture program until January.

In response to growing viral cases and public health measures, winter recreation and culture programming is being pushed back a month. Pending no further health restrictions, registered programs for the winter session (January –April, 2021) will be available for browsing in Look n’ Book on Jan. 6, with registration starting on Jan. 12.

A printed Activity Guide will not be produced, but Red Deerians can create their own online custom Activity Guide at reddeer.ca/myactivityguide. Registration can be done at MyActivity Guide, using Look n’ Book accounts.

While all team sports and other group activities are suspended until Dec. 18, there are still a multitude of options to keep active.

“While planning … has been challenging, we have been excited to welcome citizens back to our facilities over the last several months for both registered programs and activity reservations,” said Barb McKee, recreation superintendent.

“Although we don’t know what our operating environment will look like in January, we are working hard to plan flexible programs that will provide an enjoyable experience for citizens in a safe environment.”
