How to register

Registration for all classes must be done at the centre.

The City of Hamilton’s “RecConnect” will not register you for YWCA Sir Winston Churchill programs.

Please do your best to register in advance for classes before our Spring/Summer session start dates. Staff are required to make decisions regarding program viability approximately one week prior to the start of each class.

If you choose to register at the last minute, the program may be full or it could be cancelled due to low enrolment.

Payment options include a cheque payable to YWCA Hamilton or we accept cash, credit or debit payment.
