We are temporarily suspending  all programs

Dear Families,

Over the past several days, we have been closely following the news and advisories in relation to the rapidly changing Covid-19 situation in Ottawa.  This afternoon, Ottawa Public Health has asked everyone to increase their social distancing by doing the following:

  • Limiting any non-essential trips outside of the home,
  • Keeping children home from daycare,
  • Maintaining a distance of 1-2 meters from other people,
  • Working from home, and
  • If working from home is not an option, then asking employers to implement distancing at work.

With these latest measures in mind, Rideau Gymnastics feels the most responsible choice is for us to immediately suspend all programs.  All March Break camps, recreational programs, drop-in programs, and competitive programs will be suspended until further notice.

We regret the short notice of these cancellations and understand that this may cause some inconvenience to our Rideau Families.

We have worked hard over the last week to put into place every measure possible so that we could continue to provide a safe and healthy space for your children to play, train and receive care.  Above all else, however, the health and well-being of our athletes, your children, and our community is our top priority.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide additional updates as soon as possible.  This will include updates on any refunds and/or credits that will be issued, and updates on when we can resume regular operations.

We thank you for your patience, cooperation and support.

Stay well and see you soon.

Rideau Gymnastics
