OSM Summer 2021 Update

Ontario is projected to move to Step 3 of the reopening plan by July 16th which means the reopening of indoor fitness facilities. With this also comes a possibility to expand our numbers in addition to physical distance requirements.

Once the guidelines and dates are released, and the SJCC confirms our outdoor pool time we will be able to post registration. 

Things will move quickly once we know more. Please be prepared to sign up for our summer program in the coming weeks or even days.
