Pool Training Suspended During York Region Covid-19 Lockdown

Virginia Steffler

On Monday December 14, 2020, York Region was moved to Grey-zone public health lockdown due to Covid-19. Markham community centres, including arenas and pools will be closed for at least 28 days. MAC pool training, new swimmer assessments and registrations for the 2020-2021 season have been suspended until further notice. MAC follows the lead of the Province of Ontario, York Region Public Health, the City of Markham, Swim Ontario and Swimming Canada. Our top priority is to ensure the health, safety and well being of our swimmers, coaches and families. Virtual dryland programs and frequent coach-to-athlete communication will help maintain swimmers' fitness for the duration of the lockdown.
