Programs for Youth 13+

To participate in programs at our Club, a current membership is required.

Due to our current situation, we don’t yet know when we will be able to provide in person programs for youth and what those programs will look like. Although we are optimistic and have many ideas for safe programs that will mitigate risk, we must wait for direction from the province and local health authorities to move forward.

When we know more information, we will update this page.
