jump up
Early this week, an announcement was made by the Premier of Alberta and Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health that indoor recreation and sports facilities were given the green light to re-open as part of Phase 2 of Alberta's Relaunch Strategy. Although we are very excited to welcome all of you back, the JCC is not ready to open quite yet. We are communicating regularly with our colleagues at other city facilities to discuss best practices and to coordinate re-opening activities.

We want to thank everyone for your support and patience during this very challenging time. We know the programs and services we run at the Calgary JCC are of value to our members and many of you are ready to come back. Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of everyone in our JCC community. We are re-opening in a phased approach that minimizes the spread of COVID-19 and maintains a healthy and safe environment for all. We are in the process of putting protocols in place to ensure that once our building opens, you feel informed and safe to return.

We will continue to update you as we work towards re-opening the doors of the JCC. In the meantime, read on about our new outdoor opportunities to get you moving, grooving, and connecting!

Breathe, Balance, and Bend! Our bodies need exercise, but they need downtime, too. Breathing, balancing, and bending give children (and adults!) a chance to rest their bodies and relax their minds. Check out these fun and helpful tips to do together as a family, from our friends at Sesame Street in Communities. One, two, three… feel the tension melt away.
