COVID Policy for Circles

Updated Nov 1, 2021

 

Enhanced health restrictions were announced on September 15 by the Alberta government, and we will continue to require all program participants to provide proof of double vaccination dated at least 14 days before the start of their activities.

​ 

Please see our Health and Safety Communique (click on the link in blue) to learn what is accepted as proof of vaccination at CLSA.

With proof of vaccination in place, programs and circles at CLSA will be running as usual. Class sizes have already been reduced to limit participant capacity and no changes will be required.

 

What is a Circle?

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. All “drop-ins” will be called circles and follow circle protocols until further notice (e.g. purchase a barcode with a designated timeslot for activity).

What is the Mask Policy?

 

Following the provincial and municipal mandatory mask requirements, masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces.

​Face masks are required to enter the facility, and your mask must be secured over your nose and mouth. If any visitor refuses to wear a mask or face covering, they will not be permitted into the facility.

 

Masks will be required during physical activities; this includes during high and moderate activity classes, for all paddleball sports, and at the Fitness Centre.

 

For high-intensity activities: Please try wearing your mask as long as you can. If you need to take a break, pull your mask down to catch your breath. Once you’ve recovered your breath, please place your mask back on.

 

Policies will be evaluated as the season continues, and adjustments may be made based feedback from players, and/or permissions from AHS and the City.

Thanks for sticking with us while we navigate these unprecedented times. Please send all inquiries for circles to Circles@CentralLions.org.

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.
