Submit your event to The Rec Network

NEW: In response to the changing recreation environment during the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual sport, recreation and culture event and activity submissions will temporarily be accepted. In addition to event information, submissions will contain a text box for hosts to input measures being taken to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 for any in-person events and activities that are operating. All events and activities must follow Alberta Health Services current guidelines.

Fees for the Digital Advertisement bookings have temporarily been reduced to $24.50 to reflect the different usage of our recreation facilities due to COVID-19. Additionally, each group who books a Community Road Sign will receive a free digital ad space on the Rec Network for the same time period as their booking.

Community recovery (for organizations)

Supporting change through the COVID-19 pandemic

Recreation plays a significant role in the quality of life for our residents. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing or participating in recreation services comes with new challenges. The Rec Network is a resource to help support organizations in Strathcona County as they work to adhere to the new Alberta Health guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
