A note about COVID-19: Our Active Living & Culture team is using current information and guidelines from Provincial agencies to inform our sport offerings. As COVID-19 is unpredictable, we will continue to be adaptable. Programs may need to be changed, moved or cancelled as this pandemic and associated measures evolve. Refunds and/or credits will be made available as needed. We ask that you be patient and understanding if changes need to be made through the season. Find more COVID-19 safety guidelines below.
