Fall 2018 Swim Lesson Survey

We are always looking for ways to improve our programs and services and your feedback is so important to help us do this. For those who participated in our Fall 2018 swim lessons or leadership classes, we invite you to take a few minutes to complete our survey so that we can learn more about the experience you and your child had with swim lessons at Trent Athletics.  All survey feedback is anonymous, however, if you share your name and e-mail address, your name will be entered in a draw to win a free swim lesson for the Winter 2019 session.  Please follow this link to complete a separate survey for each child who was enrolled in lessons.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7QHQBCZ

NEW Parking System – Trent University

Trent University has updated its parking technology with License Plate Recognition.

Effective Jan. 2019, this service is being extended to Athletics Centre community members and individuals registered in programs. 

Your license plate will act as your permit and it won’t be necessary to have a parking pass displayed in your vehicle.

Individuals registering for programs will now be asked to provide their vehicle license plate number at the time of registration.

Community members are asked to please review your vehicle license plate number on the Trent Parking website for accuracy.

Additional information is available by clicking this link or stop by the Sales Centre to pick-up an information sheet.
