Ice

I know it is hard to have our new routines put on hold again and not be able to do all the activities we love. Now, more than ever, it is important that we do what we can to protect each other and right now that means staying home. Remember to keep your contacts limited to just those in your household and together we will see our way through this.

We look forward to seeing you back on the ice when it is safe to do so!

This afternoon, the Province announced that the Winnipeg Metro Region has been moved to the Critical level (red) on the Pandemic Response System.  As a result of the Province’s decision, the Winnipeg Winter Club will closing the RBC Dominion Securities Arena effective 10:00 pm tonight.
 
This will mean all arena programming (lessons, Member Hockey and Skills and Drills), rentals and all general use are suspended.
 
While we don’t know a specific timeline for the length of these closures, they will be in effect for at least two weeks and then reassessed. 
Thank you for patience and understanding. We will advise as soon as programs and services can resume.
 
On behalf of everyone at the Winnipeg Winter Club, we hope that everyone stays safe during this difficult period.
 
 
Best,
