We don’t have to tell you as you’ve been living it, but planning is tough when you aren’t sure what your planning for! Despite all the unknown, we are still launching our fall program guide on Saturday, August 15th. You’ll see the return of some popular programs such as our Babysitting Certification Course, Let’s Dance, Paint with Jessica and Crafty Corner. You’ll also see some new programming like our Day Program.Check it out the guide online or by picking up a printed copy at the front desk beginning Saturday, August 15th.

It’s been 5 months since we have been able to play hockey games at the WWC and now there is finally information on when hockey may be able to start again.

It is our top priority to keep our members, staff and community protected and in doing that, we have been following the recommendations of our top regional health specialists and the provincial level sport representatives. We are confident that the combination of procedures Hockey Manitoba has provided as well as the WWC’s internal policies will have you back on the ice playing as soon as it is safe to do so.

On July 31st, Hockey Manitoba released their Return to Play draft plan. In the draft, the Return to Play plan is broken down into 3 phases. Phase 1 started June 1st and phase 2 was officially approved today by the government with only phase 3 left to be approved.

Thankfully on ice skill development was in phase 1 which has allowed us to have our Skills & Drills program each Wednesday at 6:45 am. Game play however is not permitted until phase 3. While that phase is still awaiting approval from our government, we are one step closer to the return of Member Hockey. I look forward to bringing you more updates and confirmed timelines in the near future!

SWIM TIP OF THE WEEK: REMEMBER TO WARM UP!

Don’t hop in the pool and start swimming laps before you are warmed up. Start your swim session by gliding for a few minutes; this gets the blood flowing and your body used to being in the water.

We kindly ask that you clean and return all fitness equipment you use to the location where it belongs.

PLEASE SPRAY DOWN ALL EQUIPMENT

When using the WWC Fitness Facility please continue to spray down any fitness equipment you are going to be touching before and after use.

SPRAY BOTTLES WITH DISINFECTANT

As you walk into the gym, please pick up a spray bottles with disinfectant and a clean towel to wipe down equipment from the round table to your left.
