COVID-19 Update: May 21, 2021

May 21, 2021

Dear Skating Families,

As you may already know, yesterday the province of Ontario announced a new re-opening plan.  I am working with Skate Ontario, as well as the cities of Kitchener and Waterloo to further understand the province’s new regulations, and plan our eventual return to the ice this summer. 

This means we will have to cancel our spring skating season. We will begin processing a credit on your account for the skating sessions you registered and paid for this spring, but were not able to attend due to COVID-19.  You can find our Cancellation policy here We hope you will use this credit to begin skating again when we open the rink.

The Club has some exciting new programs and events coming up in the next month for our competitive skaters:

  1. Wed. May 26 at 7 p.m.

In our ongoing practice of focusing on mental health, KWSC hosts a workshop on Motivation and Sport During COVID-19

This workshop is open to all youth skaters (and their parents) who are between 10 and 17 years old.  Ellyn Klea (Sport Social Worker) from Bloom Child & Family Therapy will be our guest speaker. 

The workshop will be offered via zoom webinar.
