Lessons Calendar

A few notes as you look for a course that suits your schedule:
- by switching to List View you can see at a glance how much room there is in each lesson
- you need to be an active club member to register for a course; be sure to complete the required steps for club membership a few days before you enrol in a course
- if all lessons fill up, we will do our best to add additional start dates; subscribe to our UBSea Newsletter for updates
- if a session is full for the dates you want, please register on its waitlist (at no cost); this way:

    • you get automatically registered if a spot opens up if someone de-registers from that session, and have a short 15 min window of opportunity to complete the registration by paying for it, before we offer that spot to people behind you on the waitlist
    • it helps us gauge interest and add more lessons as needed where able
