·         Dressing Room capacities will be reintroduced- all players are advised to come prepared to play to limit numbers accessing rooms. Chairs will be provided for use in common areas such as dressing room hallways. Room capacities must be adhered to, please wait to enter rooms until a seat is available.

Please note various changes highlighted below regarding ongoing requirement for POV and updates to acceptable forms of proof in 2022:

  • Ontario is delaying the lifting of proof of vaccination requirements beyond January 17, 2022.
  • Effective 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2022, upon entry to the facility, all persons born in 2010 shall be granted a grace period of 12 weeks from their 12th birthday during which they must provide identification at the point of entry, but do not need to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This is to allow a reasonable opportunity for their series of vaccination to be completed. Please see updated letter of instruction here.

We mean that literally, too, as many of our store owners grew up in the communities they now serve. It's due to this homegrown connection that many of our stores support local teams, tournaments, and initiatives to give back whenever they can.
