Free rec centre passes for Grade 5 Delta students

Kids encouraged to get fit.

Delta Grade 5 students are getting an automatic pass – to get fit.

Students who live in Delta and are attending Grade 5 this year are eligible for a one-year pass, which entitles them to attend drop-in skating and swim programs at all Delta Parks, Recreation and Culture facilities for free.

The Grade Five Pass is available beginning Sept. 1 and is good until Aug. 31, 2012.

In addition to providing free access to any public skate or swim session, students can bring along one person over the age of 13 for free each time they use their pass. To receive the pass, students must bring their birth certificate and proof of address to the customer service office in any of Delta’s recreation facilities and have their photo taken.

They will receive their pass card immediately and be able to swim or skate right away. Students whose birth year is not 2001 need a note from their teacher or principal confirming their current enrolment in Grade 5.

Grade 6 students who live in Delta are entitled to a ten-admission pass, extending the free admission period to Delta Parks, Recreation and Culture facilities. Students can pick up the free cards at any recreation facility, with proof of Delta residency and birth date. The ten free admission passes can be used any time after issue.

Delta’s Grade 5 and 6 recreation pass program has been in place for six years and has been used as a template for similar recreation programs in Coquitlam, Vancouver, the Tri-Cities area, Richmond and Kitchener, Ont.
