Passes

A Trico Centre Pass is a great way to meet and socialize with other older adults. At any given time (but especially in the morning) there are many older adults working out in the Fitness Centre - and thus lots of new people to meet and chat with.

Trico Centre Passes are affordable - especially for older adults. We have great membership rates for those aged 60 plus:  60 Plus and 60 Plus Couple. Check here for more information about our affordable rates.

Additionally, to make our passes work for those who may be travelling for an extended time (for example, Snowbirds), we have a convenient start and stop option. You can stop and restart your membership for up to 5 months with 24 hours notice.

You can also pause your Pass for medical reasons. If you are unable to attend Trico Centre for medical reasons, bring in a doctor's note and we will adjust your Pass accordingly.

Included in your Pass is access to the pool, the arenas, and the Fitness Centre - along with over 70 drop-in fitness classes every week, many of which are specifically geared towards older adults. Plus you get Passholder pricing (approximately 20% discount) on registered programs.
