Winter 2020 Labour Action Affects

IF YOU ARE IN THE MONDAY NIGHT BASKETBALL CLASS PLEASE READ HERE.

Dear Monday Evening Basketball Class,

We have received notification from the Waterloo Region Public School Board that our rental permits in their schools are being cancelled from Feb 1st to Feb 8th and possibly again after that. You can see the memo they sent here.

We feel it will be very confusing to inform you on a weekly basis whether we have use of the space or not. We also want to do everything we can to not cancel. We are VERY grateful to Country Hills Community Centre for carving out gym space for us so we do not have to cancel this class for the session.

STARTING MONDAY FEBRUARY 3rd 6:30 – 8:00 PM BASKETBALL will be held at Country Hills Community Centre 100 Rittenhouse Road. We realize this isn’t likely as close to you as Williamsburg Public School but we are just happy to have the space for the remainder of the session, especially when the alternative was cancelling. We hope you are too and we thank you for your patience at this very difficult time!

IF YOU ARE IN THE SATURDAY PARENT AND CHILD SPORTS, PARENT & CHILD SOCCER or PARENT AND CHILD FLOOR HOCKEY READ HERE.

Dear Saturday Morning Parent & Child Sports Classes,

We have received notification from the Waterloo Region Public School Board that our rental permits in their schools are being cancelled from Feb 1st to Feb 8th and possibly again after that. You can see the memo they sent here.

We feel it will be very confusing to inform you on a weekly basis whether we have use of the space or not. We also want to do everything we can to not cancel.

We have managed to figure out a way for your classes to continue to run despite this HOWEVER we do need to cancel Saturday February 1st as we figure out how to manage all of the equipment needed for these classes as the school will not let us store it there.  Your classes will resume on Saturday February 8th at John Sweeney Catholic School on Activa Ave. After you park please proceed to the right side of the building to enter near the gym at the side doors.

We ask for your patience during this time. The gym is going to be very busy as we are sharing the space with our other Saturday classes. We are doing the best we can with the current situation and we hope you understand.

PLEASE NOTE – we do not get access to John Sweeney until 9:15 so class times have been slightly adjusted and very slightly shortened by 5 minutes to allow for equipment loading and unloading. This is what it will look like:

9:20 – 10:05 – PC Floor Hockey

10:10 – 10:55 – PC Soccer

11:00 – 11:45 – PC Sports

Again, thank you for your patience and we hope this change will not affect your enjoyment of the classes too much. We are sorry that this week needs to be cancelled. You will receive a credit on your account for the class.

Emily will see you Saturday Feb 8th at John Sweeney Catholic School! 

IF YOU ARE IN THE WEDNESDAY EVENING SOCCER CLASSES READ HERE.

Dear Wednesday Soccer Participants,

We have received notification from the Waterloo Region Public School Board that our rental permits in their schools are being cancelled for the first two weeks of February and possibly beyond that. You can see the memo they sent here.

We feel it will be very confusing to inform you on a weekly basis whether we have use of the space or not. We want you to know that we did everything we could to find alternate space for all of our public school programs.

Unfortunately we were not able to find alternate space for our 2 Wednesday night soccer classes. We very much regret to inform you that we have to cancel these two classes for the remainder of the Winter session. We will issue credits on your account for the remaining classes and cross our fingers that this is all resolved in time for our Spring session starting in April.

We ask for your patience and understanding during this time.

Brianna hopes to see you back in April!

IF YOU ARE IN THE TUESDAY DODGEBALL CLASS READ HERE.

Dear Tuesday evening Dodgeball Class,

We have received notification from the Waterloo Region Public School Board that our rental permits in their schools are being cancelled for the first two weeks of February and possibly beyond that. You can see the memo they sent here.

We feel it will be very confusing to inform you on a weekly basis whether we have use of the space or not. We also want to do everything we can to not cancel.

We have managed to figure out a way for your classes to continue to run despite this. Starting this TUESDAY FEBRUARY 4th Dodgeball will take place at John Sweeney Catholic School on Activa Ave. and will be sharing the gym with our basketball class. It will remain at John Sweeney for the rest of the session (the end of March.)

We ask for your patience during this time. The gym is going to be very busy as we are sharing the space with the other classes. We are doing the best we can with the current situation and we hope you understand.

Kadeem will see you Tuesday February 4th at John Sweeney Catholic School!
