DEAR VALUED MEMBER
The Board of Governors has UNANIMOUSLY voted to CLOSE the Winnipeg Winter Club effective 10:00 pm Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
This is a decision that was made following serious deliberation by the Board, and based on the most current recommendations issued by the Federal, Provincial and municipal health authorities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 within our communities. At this point there is no higher priority than to be the best corporate citizens that we can be: we must follow the science, taking all steps to support the urgent direction of public health experts and protect the health and welfare of our members, staff and the community at large. There is no definitive date set to re-open, however we will continue to re-evaluate as this pandemic evolves and communicate further information as it becomes available.
We understand and appreciate the impact this has on both our members and the welfare of the Club and its staff.
Registration for Spring Programs will be maintained, but no billings will take place at this time. As well, the member food assessment will be waived for this current period. The Club will not be considering any membership “holds” at this time. Dues will continue to be charged and paid by Members; this is fundamental to the long-term viability and sustainability of our Club and will assist with operations when we return to normalcy.

WWC Covid-19 Bulletin #4 Dear Valued WWC Members, We are guessing you are starting to feel a little stir crazy now that the Club has been closed for almost 2 weeks! We are too! Our team has been shifting to home offices, filming workout classes for our members and video conferencing.
I always appreciate using recycled material to create fun crafts and activities. This is a favourite for sure when we make it.
WWC COVID-19 BULLETIN #3 From your WWC Board of Directors Fellow Winnipeg Winter Club Members: Just a courtesy reminder of our previous communication regarding dues: The Board of Governors met on March 16 and determined that the Club would close to Members on March 17, as it was urgent that we supported the recommendations of public health authorities to help slow the rate of infection due to COVID-19. Four days later, the Government of Manitoba legislated that all wellness facilities, including athletic clubs and gyms, must close under public health order.
Thankfully during a time when social distancing is being asked of the community, we are still being encouraged to enjoy the outdoors.
COVID-19 BULLETIN #2 Hello WWC Membership!We are one week into social distancing and things are changing hourly within our province, nation and globe.
Yoga for Hockey Players Common injuries hockey players are experiencing have resulted from a combination of excessive exercise, lack of recovery time, and the inability to properly stretch pre and post games.
WWC COVID-19 Bulletin # 1 March 19, 2020 We know that you have many questions about Club operations including what our staff are doing during this closure. Our communication plan is to issue bi-weekly email bulletins until we re-open. Follow us on social media too, as we will have updates starting next week.
