2023 Registration Process

Similar to past years, registration will be staggered to accommodate returning students/household members followed 2 weeks later by registration for new students.

  1. Registration for returning students & members of their household is May 1st.
  2. All other (new) students will be on May 15th.

We will again offer CANSail beginner course Levels 1 & 2 using Pirate-class training sailboats along with CANSAIL advanced course Levels 3 & 4 using Lasers.

The 2022 Course Dates are: 

  • Levels 1&2 – July 10-14; July 24-28; July 31 to Aug 4; Aug 14-18
  • Levels 3&4 –                                         July 31 to Aug 4; Aug 14-18. 

All students in Levels 1 & 2 must be at least 9 years old at the start of the course and participate in a controlled capsize event as part of our safety protocol. Levels 3 & 4 students must be 12 years old and have completed level 2. No worries on capsizing as we know you love to roll your Lasers!

Parents/Guardians will directly register students using the Checklick registration tool. For prior students, info obtained last year have been incorporated into the Checklick system and should be available to the person completing the registration. All students will be directly placed into their courses and you will have confirmation of their placement.

If you should land on a “Waitlist”, our Registrar will liase to seek a proper alternative week. Your credit card will only be charged once students are formally moved from the Waitlist category into a specific week.

The 2023 course fee for all CANSail courses is C$225. The only option for payment is by using a credit card. PIJSA refund policy is that cancellation refunds prior to the course will only be offered if another student can be found. Refunds will be about $30 less because of external fees that are not refunded. No refunds are offered once each course has started.

We recommend that individuals access the Checklick system shortly after 8 AM on May 1st for returning students and household members as registration preferences are based on sequential receipt. The Checklick system will only be made available to registrants at 8:00 Pacific Time.

New students may register on May 15th on a first come, first registered basis.
