In the event of a second wave of COVID-19, the city may be forced to close the facility and our club would be shut down again.  You will be notified at that time how this may impact our club and your membership.

Membership will be granted based on a first-come-first-serve basis.  The season is scheduled to run from September 2020 to February 2021.  Once the schedule has been finalized by the city, a notification will be sent out.
