Please note, we are in Step 1 of the provincial re-opening plan, and our facility remains closed to the public. On March 1, only patrons with pre-booked training or lessons will be able to access the facility five (5) minutes prior to their scheduled start. All patrons will need to arrive dressed for their activity under their clothes, as change rooms will only be available while exiting.
