COVID-19 Update- Aug.4,2020
We are currently working with the Town of Orangeville and following Skate Canada, Skate Ontario and government guidelines, to determine ice time and fees for the 2020-2021 season. Updates will be provided on our social media outlets, website and communicated via email.
We have submitted our plans for the 2020-2021 season to the Town of Orangeville and will adjust on an as needed basis. We are currently waiting for further direction on when the ice will be going in, our available ice time and costs.
We are hopeful that we will hear further information in the coming weeks. Registration will be available ONLINE only, in the near future.
Although this is exciting news, there is still a lot of work that lies ahead of us to make sure that all social distancing protocols are in place before starting our programs.
We thank you for your patience and we hope to have some further news soon!
