The Corporation of Delta is once again offering a free one-year recreation pass for Grade 5 Delta students.
The pass entitles students to drop-in skating, swimming and gym programs at no cost at all civic recreation facilities.
The free pass also enables Grade 5 students to bring along a person over the age of 13 for free each time they use their pass.
In addition, the Grade 6 Admission Pass provides Grade 6 students with 10 free admissions at Delta's recreation facilities.
Delta's pass has been in place for seven years and has served as a template for similar recreation programs in B.C. and across Canada, including Coquitlam, Vancouver, the Tri-Cities, Richmond and Kitchener, Ontario.
The intent is to provide opportunities for children to try out new fitness and sport options at a time when their enrollment in organized sports starts to drop.
For more information on the Grade 5 pass, visit Delta's website at www. corp.delta.bc.ca or contact Julie Halfnights at 6049523540 or jhalfnights@corp. delta.bc.ca.
