Dear Skating Families,
I received notice today that the province of Ontario has amended their day camp regulations. Public Health and the City of Waterloo have further clarified that day camps with indoor sports are not allowed under Step 2 of the Steps to Re-opening Ontario. We are still awaiting more information from our advisors on how and when the Skating Club can open figure skating, power skating, Learn to Skate and the Athletic Centre. With the information I have today, it appears that the Athletic Centre and skating rinks will not be open for regular programming until the province enters Step 3 of the plan. However, we are still considering how we can offer some programming earlier in July such as fitness classes (possibly continuing virtual or outdoor in–person). We are continuing to examine the possibilities of offering Power Skating and Learn to Skate programs over the course of the summer. Our high performance athletes will be invited to return to the Carolyn Fedy Skating Centre as soon as we open our doors for our summer season.
In the meantime, please continue to follow public health guidelines so we can be back together at RIM Park as soon as possible.
