    Due to covid-19 variable restrictions and rules will be placed by all levels of government and SNCC.  All registrants must be fully vaccinated. Covid-19 rules must be followed at all times.  Click here for the covid-19 rules.  


    Currently the Ontario government has lifted capacity restrictions on gyms and restaurant.  However, we are keeping the capacity limit on until we can watch the trends and be sure that they are not going to be rolled back.  The limit is 20 people per session for now. Please put your name on the waiting list if the session you would like is full, we anticipate increasing the limit and/or adding more sessions to accommodate everyone.
