Update to COVID Policy for Circles

Alberta entered Stage 3 of its reopening plan on July 1, and we remain vigilant and cautiously optimistic about our own reopening this fall. Please know that we continue to hold the safety of our members, volunteers, instructors, and staff as the top priority.

Any club or activity that is moving forward for Fall Programming will be called a 'Circle.' Please note there will be no “drop-ins” this fall due to COVID variant influences. Until further notice, members will be required to purchase a barcode to attend their activity. Time slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Policies will be evaluated a few weeks into the season, and adjustments may be made based feedback from players, and/or permissions from AHS and the City. We will keep you informed of all relevant information for safe gathering and play closer to the start date scheduled for September 7, 2021.
 
The following points will apply to any circles resuming activity in the fall:
  • We will continue to follow recommended health and safety guidelines from AHS.
  • Drop-in activities are being treated as circles due to COVID variant influences, and will follow circle protocols until further notice.
  • Masks must be worn when moving about the building and if and instructor requests you to.
  • Physical distancing protocols and cleaning processes will also be in place until further notice.
  • Participants must be CLSA members.
     
Thanks for sticking with us during what we hope is the home stretch. Please send all inquiries for circles to Circles@CentralLions.org. We look forward to welcoming you back to the centre this fall!
Waitlist Policy

If the activity in which you wish to register is full, you can be waitlisted. If there is a cancellation, we will contact members in the order received on the waitlist.
 
We encourage early registrations so that we can make adjustments to scheduling if necessary. If there is sufficient interest run a second course/activity (and depending on instructor or room availability) this might mean scheduling a second timeslot or moving to a larger room to allow for distancing.

Club FAQ's

 

What happens if my activity gets cancelled?

 

Did you know that it is program policy to cancel classes one week prior to the start date if there are not enough registrations? If it is necessary for CLSA to cancel a program, you will be notified prior to the program start date. In this situation, refunds or credits will be issued to your account. Courses may be cancelled due to low enrolment, extreme weather, instructor unavailability, and facility maintenance. Generally, no refunds or credits are given for programs, presentations, club, or Fitness Centre registrations unless cancelled by CLSA.

How do I join a club? 

You will first have to purchase a CLSA Annual Membership. See our Membership page for eligibility details.
Each group has different operational times throughout the year. To stay up to date on club accessibility refer to our current Catalogue for dates, times, fees, and registration barcodes. Once you have purchased your CLSA membership, you can register in any club, provided it is not at capacity.  CLSA allows a one-time free drop-in to any club for interested members. 

Why is there a registration fee and club dues? 

The registration fee for a club is a consolidated price set out by the CLSA to cover room and/or amenity use as well as administration fees. We pride ourselves on offering amenities and rooms at prices you can not find at other facilities around the city. The club dues are a separate amount, unique to each club and are determined by the club coordinator to cover the cost of supplies and items specific to the club.  


What if I just want to try out a CLSA club? 

 

** Club Previews are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19**


All interested individuals have the opportunity to preview a club for a day. Some clubs offer the option of paid drop-ins. Fees range from $5–$10 per drop-in. If you are dropping in, you must have an active CLSA membership.
