Safety and wellness policies and procedures

We have a few new policies and procedures in place for everyone’s safety and wellbeing. Here is what you can expect:

  • Lockers and cubbies are available for use while you are in the facility.
  • There are sanitizer bottles throughout the Recreation Centre for cleaning equipment and we will give you a cleaning towel when you arrive. Clean the equipment before and after you use it. 
  • You will still be able to fill your personal water bottle from the fountain. Please remember to BYOB (bring your own bottle).
  • We will no longer be offering towel service. Please remember to bring your own sweat towel.
  • We still have our wonderful studio and weight room as well as our court.
  • Our prices have not changed and we still offer memberships (1,3,6,12 months), punch-passes (10 and 25), or a drop-in to use the facility.
