Pickleball Change

Pickleball nets will be up and ready for you to come play Sundays 10:00am-12:00pm, Tuesdays 4:00-8:00pm and Thursdays 9:00-11:00am (weather dependent of course…wind & rain will be the biggest determining factors).

Single play only, unless playing with individuals from the same household. Must use your own balls and racquets. Nets will be provided and set up. Please note that for the safety of the community, and as recommended from the Government of Saskatchewan Public Health Orders, the nets WILL BE SANITIZED when set up and taken down. Please remember to use at your own discretion and to follow the guidelines from the provincial government to help contain the spread of Covid.

Here are a few guidelines from the provincial government to help contain the spread of COVID:
• Individuals who are sick should stay home.
• A physical distance of two metres should be maintained between people not from the same household or extended household.
• Individuals should wash their hands before and after entering the pickleball courts; carry and use alcohol-based hand sanitizers approved by Health Canada.
• Avoid overcrowding. Individual groups must not exceed the restrictions on public gatherings.

 

Swim Lessons a Go!

Swim Lessons are a go for July 27-31 & August 4-7. It’s unfortunate we won’t be able to hold two sessions this summer.  However, with all the unknowns about what was going to happen, we are thrilled we can still offer the one at least!

Lessons will be a little different with extra precautions, etc. to ensure the safety of the swimmers and staff.  There will be no pool lessons,  instead both weeks will be held at Buena Vista beach.

Registration will open online July 8-20.  Stay tuned for more details and registration info coming soon.

Yoga is Back!!

We Are Back!!
