Swim lessons are changing!

The City of Surrey is pleased to announce that beginning in January 2023, we will be offering the Lifesaving Society Swim for Life program. This swim lesson program has been run nationwide for many years and focuses on teaching participants of all ages to be safe in and around the water as they enjoy our pools, lakes and beaches. The Red Cross is discontinuing their swim lesson program as of December 2022 and has worked closely with the Lifesaving Society to facilitate a smooth lesson transition.

If you are currently in swim lessons, including our swim adapted program, please review the lessons transition grid to see what level you will be in for the Swim for Life program. All adapted programs will now be integrated into our Swim for Life program with 1:1 support as required.

Registration by phone is available. Call 604-501-5100, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm and a customer service representative will be happy to help you.

In person registration is available at any Surrey Parks, Recreation & Culture facility during hours of operation. Bring your recreation passcard when you visit. 

If you need to cancel your registration, log in to your account and follow our How to Cancel Your Activity video.

Alternatively, you can call 604-501-5100, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm and a customer service representative can cancel your registration for you.

If you no longer want to use your Recreation Pass, learn how to receive a refund.

If you are on the waitlist for a registered activity, please wait until you receive a confirmation call that a spot has become available. Waiting at the facility may not guarantee space in the activity.

Registration Tips

Swim lessons are very popular and always in high demand. While we recommend using the tips below, we cannot guarantee that you will secure a spot. 

  • Ensure you are using Chrome as your browser or courses may not show up properly. 

  • It is faster to book online vs. phone as the phone que will contain callers registering for all courses (not just swimming lessons). 

  • For existing customers, it is faster to login to your MySurrey account first (prior to 9pm), then select your course(s).  For new customers, create a MySurrey account prior to registration day. 

  • Have course page open. 

  • Refresh your browser right at 9pm (PRCMS system will not automatically refresh when registration opens). 

  • Select courses for all family members first, then pay for all courses at once. 

  • Keep Credit Card info on file so that you don’t have to take the time to enter it each time. Information is completely secure. 

  • Join the waitlist. If we have a cancellation, then we will call those on the waitlist in the order that they joined. 

For Everyone's Safety

  • Patrons who are sick will not be allowed entry.  

  • Lockers are available but we recommend leaving valuables at home.  

Please note: We will actively monitor our procedures and may adjust as necessary.
