- Skating lessons for those two years and older
- Hockey programs for those three years and older
For anyone unsure what level to register for, request a free evaluation during any of our drop-in public skate or swim sessions or bring in your report card from another municipality.
Reminder: One Set at a Time
Skating and swimming lesson participants can only be registered for one set of lessons at a time. You may register your child for the next set of lessons on the last day of the current set. This allows for more families to gain access to the limited number of available lessons.
Please note, your child will be withdrawn from a program(s) if registered in more than one lesson set, or if they are registered in future lesson sets prior to completing their current lesson set.
Health Protocols at City Recreation Facilities
Masks are currently required indoors for anyone age five and older (removal permitted during sport and fitness activities). Full proof of vaccination, as required by B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, applies to certain indoor social and recreation activities at Coquitlam recreation centres.

Financial Assistance Available for Recreation
It is now easier than ever to access financial support for Coquitlam’s recreation services.
