New COVID-19 Policy for 'Circles'
To allow some activities to resume we have made adjustments to times, days, fees, participant capacity, and reservation requirements. Any club that is moving forward for Fall Programming will temporarily be called a 'Circle.' Any club that is not resuming operations this fall will remain known as a 'Club.'
Badminton, Pickleball, Table Tennis, and Snooker Circles are by appointment only. Timeslots are available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be booked by calling 780–496–7369.
Lapidary, Stained Glass, Investors, Knitting & Crochet, and Wonders of Writing Circles will resume by purchasing the barcode for the season.
Drama, Card-Playing, and Music Clubs are temporarily suspended until further notice.

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.
