Family Membership
Westside's membership fees are set to provide the best value possible. While we do not have a set family membership price, once an adult has purchased a membership, dependent memberships for legal children can also be purchased at a deeply discounted price.

This type of fee structure adds up to a family membership rate, while providing a cost break for single parent families and families with more than two children.

All dependent memberships expire concurrent with their parent(s) regardless of when they were purchased. Fees are not prorated.

Childcare
Short-term childcare services are available while at Westside. Visit our Child Development Centre details.

Youth Access
Safety of youth at Westside is a priority. Children under 13Y must be supervised at all times while in the facility by a responsible individual 16Y or older. Every person who enters our gates is required to pay drop-in admission or have a Westside membership.

Children 10Y-12Y may earn unparented access to our Aquatic Park, Leisure Ice and Gymnasiums upon successful completion of an Unparented Access orientation. An additional orientation is available to add Youth Wellness Centre access for youth 10Y-17Y. See Youth Access or contact the Youth Wellness Desk at 403.531.5875 Ext 242 for more information.
