The MMCC is Reopening!

We are almost ready to return to our new ‘normal’ here at the MMCC! Regular youth programing is scheduled to start on October 13, with Defined Movement Dance, Wawa Wado Kai, Wawa Minor Hockey, Wawa Figure Skating Club, and the Wawa Mustangs prepared to welcome your children back! If you would like contact information for any of these organizations, we are happy to provide it to you. Senior programming will begin around the end of October, and adult shortly after that, provided all goes well with the initial reopening. The Gym and Sauna will remain closed for the time being.

Our ‘new normal’ will look a lot different at the MMCC this season. The facility has been broken into 4 Zones, allowing the Maximum Capacity to be 50 in each area (with the exception of the curling area). Your Organization will inform you of the correct entrance to the MMCC to be used, and due to contract tracing and capacity levels; if you need to enter a different ‘Zone’ you must exit the building and re-enter using the appropriate doors, there is NO INTERNAL ACCESS TO OTHER ZONES. The Zones will be colour coded, and easy to follow, and there is a washroom available in each section. Please be prepared to be screened and have your contact information collected by your
organization every time you enter the building, this is a requirement for everyone.

Masks are required, with the exception of being actively engaged in physical activity. Everyone must to come dressed for their activity with the exception of changing footwear. Change rooms at this time, are not available for ‘changing’, just footwear.

Please be aware of capacity levels and social distancing all times, and note that the entrance and exit times for activities is quite strict, as it is required to give staff the appropriate time to sanitize in between users. Please take the time to review the MMCC Guidelines, and contact your organization or us with any questions! (for full copies of the MMCC reopening plan, please contact us).

We are looking forward to seeing everyone this fall!
