Club Update- July 14th

July 14, 2021

Dear Skating Families,

I am pleased to announce that we are re-opening on Tuesday July 20!

We will have open sessions for figure skating and power skating starting on July 20.  As  well, this summer we’ll offer Learn to Skate and Power Skating programs and a full summer school for our figure skaters in August.  The Athletic Centre will be open to members and skaters on July 20.

KWSC office staff, AC staff and coaches are working hard to get our doors open with all the COVID-19 protocols in place for safety.

What’s changed?

Only 2 metres physical distancing required in the Athletic Centre (AC). It was 3 metres the last time we were open. 

No need to pre-book a space in the Athletic Centre (AC). 

In August, fitness classes for skaters will take place in the AC.

The Carolyn Fedy Skating Centre is under construction, so all skating will take place in the Optimist rink (with a few skaters using Pillars in August). 

What’s the same?

Complete your digital health screening (all staff, coaches and parents).  AC members and skaters will have their screening done in person.

Wear your mask indoors unless you’re exercising. 

Enter and exit through the AC

The KWSC Office remains closed for now. We will re-open for office hours soon, but our priority is to get skaters on the ice ASAP.

Coaches and AC staff take attendance.

Only 1 parent/guardian is allowed, and only if the skater is 17 or younger. 

Both City of Waterloo and KWSC staff will disinfect and we ask all those who enter the building to sanitize. 

Athletic Centre is open to skaters for warm-ups and cool downs.

Fedy rink dressing rooms remain closed.

Thank-you for sticking by us through these unpredictable and challenging months.  We will continue to put the health and well-being of our members and coaches first.  We look forward to welcoming you back!
